Chuck Liddell was arrested early on Monday morning on a domestic violence charge. This is a breaking story, so there are not many details at this juncture, but the UFC legend is behind bars as of this writing.

TMZ Sports reports that the LA Sherriff’s Department received a call about a fight at Liddell’s home in Hidden Hills. When police arrived an investigation took place. It was then determined that the 51-year-old fighter was involved in a verbal argument and it got physical.

The alleged victim is Liddell’s wife, but she did not require any medical attention. Her husband was still taken to jail and a $20,000 bail was set.

For the record, Liddell was listed as 6’2″ and 240 pounds on his booking sheet. The Iceman has not posted bail yet, but it is still very early in the morning. That will likely take place sooner than later.


Liddell is known for his historic fights in the Octagon against Tito Ortiz, Vitor Belfort, Randy Couture and others. His last fight was in 2018 and he retired from MMA last year.

Chuck Liddell came out of retirement in a manner of speaking as he was the referee for Aaron Carter and Lamar Odom’s Celebrity Boxing match. We will continue monitoring this story for more updates right here at Thirsty.

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
