Former UFC competitor Rory Markham was arrested Saturday in Chicago on charges of domestic battery and bodily harm according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Department records.

Markham, 31, who last competed at UFC 111, losing to Nate Diaz by first-round TKO in the Stockton, California native’s first bout during his brief run at welterweight, posted a 16-6 record over his career, including a 1-2 mark inside the Octagon.

A fixture in the IFL and a former Miletich Martial Arts representative was arrested in March on similar charges. He is currently being held in Cook County Jail with bail set at $250,000, and scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
