TMZ is reporting that UFC fighter Tito Ortiz was arrested Monday by Huntington Beach police:

TMZ has learned Tito Ortiz was just arrested for felony domestic violence at the home he shares with Jenna Jameson.

We're told when cops arrived at the couple's home in Huntington Beach, CA, Jenna Jameson had "visible injuries." We're told someone called 911 today at 9:53 AM and reported a "disturbance."

Tito is currently in custody and on his way to a Huntington Beach jail in Orange County, CA. Tito and Jenna are not married -- but they have twin boys.

Update I -TMZ caught up with Jameson as she left the residence.

Update II - UFC president Dana White spoke with TMZ:

White says, "We're gonna be fair, but we could cut him."

White wants to wait until the police reports are in, but the UFC can take action even before the legal process runs its course.  "Other than going on a killing spree, being accused of domestic violence is the worst thing you can have going for you," White says.

Ortiz was a coach on Season 11 of "The Ultimate Fighter." He was scheduled to square off against fellow coach and rival Chuck Liddell in June. Spike and the UFC have not revealed why, but Ortiz had to drop off the show and was replaced by Rich Franklin, who will now face Liddell in Vancouver on June 12.

Ortiz is the third prominent mixed martial artist arrested in the last month. On Mar. 31 it was Jon "War Machine" Koppehaver arrested for assault with a deadly weapon outside Thrusters, a San Diego bar. Two weeks ago, Mike Whitehead was arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of sexual assault.
