Chuck Liddell has filed for divorce from his wife of 10 years … just days after the UFC legend was arrested for domestic violence in Los Angeles, TMZ Sports has learned.
51-year-old Liddell filed for “dissolution w/ minor children” from his wife Heidi on Friday at a courthouse in L.A.
We broke the story … Chuck was arrested early Monday morning at his Hidden Hills home after police responded to a call for a domestic disturbance.
When cops arrived, they spoke to Chuck and Heidi … and determined a verbal argument turned physical.
While Chuck was taken to jail … he’s adamant he was actually the victim, and volunteered to go with cops so Heidi could remain at their home with a minor child who was in the house.
“I was the victim of the incident last night at our family home, as details of the case will reveal,” Liddell said in a statement the day after the arrest.
“The deputies informed me that my wife would be arrested, as I did not respond to her assault while I sustained bruising and lacerations. I volunteered to go in her place.”
Heidi was cited on the scene, but not taken into custody.
Chuck and Heidi have been together for over a decade … engaging in November 2010. They have two children together.
