Mixed martial arts star Tito Ortiz won't face domestic violence charges from an altercation with his ex-porn star girlfriend last month.

The Orange County district attorney's office said Thursday there isn't enough information to prove domestic violence. Ortiz was arrested April 26 at the home he shares with Jenna Jameson and their two young sons.

Jameson accused Ortiz of abuse, while Ortiz adamantly denied harming her. Ortiz also claimed Jameson was an Oxycontin addict whose relapse triggered a confrontation.

The couple apparently already has reconciled, and a restraining order against Ortiz was lifted last week.

Ortiz is the former UFC light heavyweight champion, but is winless in his last four UFC fights since 2006.
