Chuck Liddell Takes HUGE HIT In Custody Fight

6/27/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Liddell got smacked around by his baby mama in court today -- when an L.A. judge ordered the fighter to pay $6,000 per month in child support after Chuck no-showed to the hearing.

Liddell has been going toe-to-toe with his ex Lori Geyer for months -- in an effort to gain custody of their 12-year-old son. 

But today in L.A. County Superior Court, the judge came down hard on Liddell -- because in addition to the child support, Liddell was also FINED $2,500 for failing to produce financial documentation requested by the court. 

TMZ contacted Liddell's lawyer, who told us Chuck didn't show because "[Lori's] attorney failed to provide notice in an attempt to obtain favorable decision."

But Lori's attorney, Brian Kramer, tells us he has proof that Chuck received notice -- adding, "[Liddell's lawyer] had no valid excuse to boycott these proceedings."

Isn't this the guy who was taking his ex to court saying that she was abusing their son because she had him shovel the snow off of the sidewalk this winter?

Another deadbeat dad. Chuck isn't paying child support and we all know he can afford it. If he loves his son, he would want to see that he is well taken care of. Chuckie poo thinks he can do whatever he wants, even ignoring court orders. Dana is taking good care of him, so he should stop complaining that he is retired and has to be very frugal. It;s about time someone dropped the hammer on him.
TMZ should investigate how he is treating his daughter, or is Atascadero too far from LA.

So now TMZ has switched from a proper description of a mother to "Baby Momma" Wow, you guys are so cutting edge.

It seems like TMZ always sides with the celebrity rather than their opposition. He with the most money wins, I guess. So much for justice. I hope no one is expecting Chuck to write a check anytime soon.

She may be a gold digger but being a no show to court for your own child = F A I L. Failure to produce do***entation that the court requests? = F A I L. Paying for a lawyer that doesn't make you (his client) understand that by not co operating with the court things will only get worse for you. = F A I L!

I like Chuck Liddel and I don't want to see this happening to him but he brought it on himself. Word of advice that my drill sergeant gave me. "When in doubt, pull out!" Works wonders.

Why would you call a mother that has raised a child successfully for almost 13 years a gold digger for expecting the father to pay child support? Chuck is being very selfish and self centered. Write a check Chuck!

Chuck picked up Jose Canseco's cast aways, his girlfriend and his lawyer. Chuck has two strikes against to begin with. The court ruled that Chuck should pay child support, because it is only fair. So you can blame the judge if you are not happy with the mom receiving child support.

THE ICE MAN! Chuck needs to make a comeback in the octogon versus Chris Brown. I would love to see how Brown does in a fight against someone else than a woman!

That's $72/year if you're keeping score at home. Obviously this is not about the cost of raising a child: http://forpoorer.blogspot.com/2011/06/cost-of-raising-child-vs-child-support.html

I find it amazing that my mother was able to raise 2 kids on $250 of child support a month. Because clearly, this kid needs 6g's worth of money a month.
