Veteran fighter Rory Markham was arrested Wednesday on a felony assault charge by the Davenport, Iowa police.

According to Scott County (Iowa) public records, Markham, who turned 31 on Monday, was booked on one felony, willful injury count Wednesday morning. He was held at Scott County Jail for more than three hours before being released on $10,000 bond.

No specific details on the incident are available as of this writing. A police representative cited Iowa state confidentiality laws in declining to give further information.

The Miletich Martial Arts fighter has a 16-6 professional record. He was a mainstay of the International Fight League and also fought three times in the UFC. His most recent bout was a first-round knockout loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 111 in 2010.
