UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell will not be prosecuted following his recent domestic violence arrest.

Neither Liddell nor his wife Heidi Northcott will face charges following the mixed martial arts legend’s Oct. 11 arrest, according to a document acquired Monday by MMA Junkie. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office will not move forward and prosecute. TMZ Sports was first to report the news.

According to the document, the couple’s daughter told prosecutors she witnessed her parents pushing. Liddell sported a red mark on his face and chest as a result, while Northcott did not have any visible damage. Listed as a “cross-complaint” the intimate partner violence charges filed for both sides were dropped due to “lack of sufficient evidence.”

Shortly after the incident, Liddell issued a statement in which he stated he went to jail in an effort to shield a mental health issue. He was arrested and booked into the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station in Agoura Hills, Calif., on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. He was held on a $20,000 bond and released that same morning.

Liddell filed for “dissolution w/ minor children” on Friday in Los Angeles court. Liddell, 51, and Northcott, 41, have been together for more than 10 years and got engaged in November 2010. They have two young children together.
