‘UFC’ star Chuck Liddell and his wife, Heidi, have agreed to drop dueling restraining orders against each other after coming to a custody and living arrangement following his arrest for domestic violence.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the MMA star and his wife did not attend a hearing set for this week, where they would have argued for restraining orders against each other. Instead, according to the filing, the couple stipulated an agreement — and both restraining orders were dissolved.
It should be noted, the agreement doesn’t appear to be a sign of the couple getting back together. The former couple is still going through a divorce, but seem to have agreed on a living situation and a temporary custody arrangement for visitation of their minor children.
‘UFC’ Star & His Wife Drop Dueling Restraining Orders Against Each Other
As we reported, both the UFC star and his wife — Heidi Liddell — made allegations against each other following an altercation that landed him behind bars.
Several weeks ago, Liddell was taken into custody after allegations of an argument with his wife turned physical. At the time, Heidi claimed Chuck was extremely intoxicated during the dispute and “pushed me with his head and chest trying to get my phone” after an argument ensued. Mrs. Liddell says the MMA fighter used a “move called a ‘double-leg takedown’ causing me to fall again on my butt, which I have now discovered bruised my tailbone.”
Unfortunately, Heidi claimed this isn’t the first time she was the victim of domestic violence at the hands of Liddell. In 2011, she claims he assaulted her following a UFC event. During the altercation, she says he “started to strangle me.”

“I was terrified that he was going to kill me,” she claimed.
She continued, “It truly breaks my heart that the man I love has been broken down to the point where he has spiraled with his alcohol and drugs, but that does not give him liberty to take out his feelings on myself and our children. I want him to receive help.”
Liddell claims he is the true victim in this case, saying his wife was the real aggressor in this situation. On October 10, 2021, the couple attended a function in their neighborhood and upon returning home, Chuck claims his wife “attacked me by putting her hands on my chest and pushing me.”

He continued, “She then slapped me in the face with her open hand, dropping her cell phone that was in her hand.”
“When she caught up to me on the second-floor landing, she jumped in front of me again, put her hands on my chest and pushed me again, and then punched me in the torso with her closed fist four to five times,” he wrote in legal documents. In the end, Lidell says he “never once hit” his wife. In most cases, a stipulation like this points towards the ex-couple being able to work out their differences through lawyers and settle it out of court.
The divorce is ongoing.
