Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill was arrested earlier this week in Kentwood, Michigan after a physical altercation with his brother, James Anthony Hill Jr.

A recent report by TMZ detailed the altercation that occurred last month as stated in a probable cause affidavit obtained by the outlet.

The two brothers reportedly had an argument on November 25 which led to the UFC fighter punching his older brother once, and sending him to the ground. Upon getting up, James was punched and floored yet again.

A doctor's report notes that James Hill's face and left eye were swollen from the beatdown and police officers also observed a missing front tooth that James claimed was the result of the assault. Two days after the altercation, the younger brother was arrested on charges of one misdemeanor count of aggravated domestic violence.

Immediately in the wake of the news breaking out of his arrest, Jamahal Hill's manager Brian Butler, owner and CEO of Sucker Punch Entertainment, denied the charges as "false accusations":

"The recent 'click bait' headlines about @JamahalH were based on an alleged dispute between him and his older brother. Jamahal adamantly maintains his innocence and denies the false accusations. We will not be commenting anymore about this until the truth comes out in court."
