It is going to be interesting too see how this plays out, and which version of the story the LVMPD and courts believe.  IF Arianny did in fact kick Mr. Chandra first, she may face misdemeanor DV charges, if she didn’t…Mr Chandra is in big trouble.  In any case you should never go on the offensive with a woman, even IF she is attacking you.  Defend yourself, even restrain her if need be but you never go on the offensive with a female.  According to reports, Arianny had cuts on her arm, that’s not good for Chandra.  Arianny is the UFC’s sweetheart, and if ever there were a group of employees you would not want to have mad at you it is without a doubt the UFC fighters.  One thing is clear, they probably shouldn’t be dating any longer.  Arguing over a text message, and then having it escalate to a physical altercation is not a sign of stability in a relationship, especially one as young as 7 months…That’s still the honeymoon stage when everything should be lovey-dovey.  Yup you just read the phrase “lovey-dovey” on an MMA blog…I’m an innovator, pushing beyond boundaries.  Anyway, here is the report from the Las Vegas Sun…

A heated argument early Saturday morning in a Wynn hotel room led to the arrest of Arianny Celeste and her boyfriend, Metro Police said.

Celeste, 26, and her boyfriend, 34-year-old Praveen Chandra, each were arrested on a count of battery domestic violence, according to arrest reports released Tuesday.

A Wynn employee heard a crashing sound from a room and saw Lopez come running out of the room shortly after 4:30 a.m., the reports state.

Lopez told police her boyfriend choked her and grabbed her right arm during an argument about text messages, the reports said. Officers noted that Lopez had scratches on her right arm.

Detectives interviewed Chandra who said Lopez kicked him in the nose in a limousine, where the argument started, the reports said.

The argument escalated in the hotel room, at which point Chandra accused Lopez of throwing two vases at him, police said.

Chandra recorded parts of the argument on his cell phone, which showed him following Lopez around the hotel room and demanding to know why she kicked him in the nose, the reports said. Officers noted injuries to Chandra’s nose and scratches to his chest and arm.

“Chandra also continued to laugh at Lopez every time she said how she felt about him,” according to the arrest reports.

Chandra denied ever touching Lopez during the argument and told police he didn’t know how Lopez received cuts on her arms.

Police arrested both Lopez and Chandra and transported them to the Clark County Detention Center. A hearing for the two in Las Vegas Justice Court is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. Friday.

The two have been dating for seven months, according to the arrest reports.

I never thought I’d see the day when I posted Arianny’s mug shot…should I add it to the mug shot list?  In any case I hope it all works out for her.

    I agree with you should never go on the offensive with a female its unacceptable. They take the women’s side in most of these cases so I think she should be OK but who knows.

    So the point of the story is, Arianny is now single and likes older men? MMABADASS, can I crash with you for a bit while I campaign for Ariannys affections? I’ll pay for half of the rent.
