UFC's Arianny Celeste Responds To Domestic Violence Arrest

Mugshots of Arianny Celeste and her boyfriend Praveen Chandra.

UFC Octagon girl and Playboy model Arianny Celeste was arrested early Saturday morning a few hours before UFC 146. She was charged with domestic violence and both she and her boyfriend Praveen Chandra were arrested. After spending some time in jail she was able to report for duty mid-way through the event. She's been mum throughout the ordeal until now. Arianny spoke to Hollyscoop.com and offered the following explanation for the incident: "I was defending myself after he choked me twice."

Hollyscoop has a little bit more on the pair's troubled relationship:

A source who was on set during a recent Deadmau5 music video shoot starring the UFC Octagon Girl tells Hollyscoop that Praveen showed up to the set intoxicated and went off on a jealous rage because he didn't want her appearing in the video.
