UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie — one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time — is pulling the plug on his 22 year marriage … TMZ Sports has learned.
Gracie filed divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court seeking to end his marriage to Marianne Cuttic.
The two were married back in 1994 and have 4 children together — 3 of them are under the age of 18.
In the docs, 49-year-old Gracie cites irreconcilable differences for the split — but the most interesting part … he’s the one demanding spousal support. He also wants her to pay his attorneys fees.
Shocking, considering Gracie is one of the most famous MMA fighters ever — and just fought Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149 back in February.
Marianne is a podiatrist in Los Angeles.
Royce is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their minor kids.
According to multiple reports, Gracie and his wife have been battling with the I.R.S. — which has accused them of owing more than $1 million in back taxes.
