UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste

In case you didn’t hear, longtime Octagon girl Arianny Celeste (Pictured) was arrested Saturday morning for domestic violence just hours before she was to circle the Octagon at “UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir.”

Although details surrounding her alleged assault are scarce, UFC president Dana White claimed Celeste has got the organization’s full support.

“Arianny is our baby. She has been with us for over five years. She is a good girl and an amazing ambassador for UFC. I don’t know all the details of what happened but we have her back and support her 100%,” White told TMZ.com.

Celeste, whose real name is Arianny Lopez, posted $3,000 bond and was released shortly after her incarceration.

The 26-year-old is expected to have a hearing in Nevada on May 30th.

Although it was believed Celeste would skip Saturday night’s show, the former Playboy covergirl made her way inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada to join Brittney Palmer prior to Roy Nelson’s knockout over Dave Herman.

Celeste has been radio silent since her arrest. She hasn’t even thumbed out a single tweet to her 230,000 followers on Twitter.
