Ultimate fighter Chuck Liddell has filed for full custody of his son amid concerns for the pre-teen's welfare.
Liddell began to worry about his son Cade, 12, who lives with mum Lori Geyer, after he complained about a three-month-old toothache during a recent visit to his dad's home.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship star has now gone to court to protect his son after fearing that his health and safety may be at serious risk under his mother's care, reports Tmz.com.
He is expected to appear in court on Tuesday (5Apr11) in Colorado, where the boy lives.
