Ex-UFC’er Markham arrested

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.
