Everybody was kung-fu fighting, apparently.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon Girl extraordinaire, Arianny Celeste, has finally broken her silence following her arrest for domestic violence last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. The part-time sexpot and her boyfriend, Praveen Chandra, came to blows in a "Sin City" hotel.
Celeste tells HollyScoop.com it was self-defense:
"I was defending myself after he choked me twice."
Her May 26, 2012 arrest interfered with -- but did not prevent -- her Octagon appearance at UFC 146.
Celeste, who has the full support of UFC President Dana White, is scheduled to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court tomorrow morning (June 1) to answer for the charges.
