Arianny Celeste not charged for incident with boyfriend Praveen Chandra

UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste received a rash of bad publicity late in May after she and her boyfriend, Praveen Chandra, were arrested on domestic violence charges. Luckily for the two, the charges reportedly have been dropped.

“After our review of the case, we found that there was insufficient evidence to move forward,” an assistant to the Las Vegas district attorney told MMA Junkie.

There seemed to be plenty of evidence to move forward with charges based on what we read, but I’m guessing a higher force interceded. Do you really think the city of Las Vegas would press charges against a UFC darling given how important the UFC is to the city? This is the same Sin City where a judge delayed Floyd Mayweather’s jail sentence so he could fight and bring in the dough for the town.

Money quite obviously talked in this one.

Arianny Celeste allegedly kicked boyfriend Praveen Chandra in face

UFC Octagon girl Arianny Celeste was arrested early Saturday morning in Las Vegas on domestic violence charges and was released after posting bond. The UFC announced its support of Celeste despite details from the arrest not being available, but now we know what happened.

The arrest report was released on Tuesday and the Las Vegas Sun says the incident between Celeste, 26, and her boyfriend, Praveen Chandra, 34, began in a limousine. Chandra told police that Celeste, whose real name is Arianny Lopez, kicked him in the nose over text messages he supposedly sent to other women.

The argument reportedly escalated at their hotel room at the Wynn. Chandra accused Lopez of throwing two vases at him. Lopez told police her boyfriend choked her and grabbed her right arm.

The two reportedly have been dating for months, which is probably the saddest news of all to most UFC fans. As far as what happened between the two, that depends on whom you believe. I’m guessing there’s a bit of truth to both of their sides. And how crazy is it that Chandra may have been texting other women despite dating a girl who has posed for Playboy? Celeste really isn’t enough for him?
