Longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) analyst and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hall of famer Pat Miletich was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Monday, following a stop by police in Moline, Illinois.

Miletich, 52, was booked into Rock Island County Jail and later released, according to Quad-City Times, in what marks the second time the Shuri-ryu black belt has been charged with DWI, following a guilty plea in Bettendorf back in March 2019.

“The Croatian Sensation” is perhaps best known to the younger generation of fans for his role in the broadcast booth, but Miletich was a force to be reckoned with in the early days of MMA. Finishing with a 29-7-2 record, the wrestling standout made his Octagon debut at UFC 16: “Battle in the Bayou” way back in 1998.

Miletich is expected to emerge from retirement to battle former boxing champ Michael Nunn at Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds later this month.
