Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste, who was arrested for domestic violence back on May 26, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada, will have her day in court.

It just won't be today.

That's because her appearance in front of Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa has been delayed until July 2 while prosecutors take additional time to review her case, which Celeste maintains was "self defense" against her boyfriend, Praveen Chandra, who was also charged.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal brought word of the change earlier today.

Celeste, who has the full support of UFC President Dana White, posted $3,000 bond following the incident and returned to her cageside duties at UFC 146 later that night looking no worse for the wear.

Looks like we'll go to the judge's scorecards next month in "Sin City."
