Chuck Liddell files for divorce just days after arrest


Chuck Liddell has filed for divorce from his wife Heidi Northcott just days after his arrest

Only on Monday, UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell was arrested by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department deputies and was kept at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station on a $20,000 bond.

He was arrested on charges of domestic violence.

Upon being released the same day, Liddell issued a statement on Instagram blaming it all on his wife Heidi Northcott.

In his statement, Liddell explained that it was he who has the victim of abuse and not his wife. The former champ also hinted at separation from his wife soon.

And as expected, Liddell has filed for divorce with the news first being reported by online newspaper TMZ.

TMZ in their statement wrote:

“51-year-old Liddell filed for “dissolution w/ minor children” from his wife Heidi on Friday at a courthouse in L.A.”

It is quite amusing to note that a number of similar incidents have rocked the MMA community in the last couple of weeks. First, it was Jon Jones, then Liddell and more recently Luis Pena.
