Former UFC Fighter Luis Pena Arrested For Third Time This Year, Given Two More Misdemeanor Charges

Former UFC fighter Luis Pena was arrested for the third time this year on Monday, per reports.

Pena, 28, was arrested earlier this week by the Deerfield Beach Police Department in Florida, USA. He was given misdemeanor charges of battery and criminal mischief, adding on to an already long list of crimes he has been charged with this year.

Aaron Bronsteter of TSN was the first to report the arrest.

Pena’s bond is set at $6,000, per a report from Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.

Pena was arrested just last month in Deerfield Beach, that time being charged with battery to cause bodily harm and domestic violence battery to touch or strike. Shortly after, UFC decided to release him from their roster.

Pena was also arrested in June, that time being charged with robbery by sudden snatching, battery and criminal mischief. Those charges were later downgraded to simple battery and criminal mischief after the alleged victim signed an affidavit saying that she does not want to press charges.

Pena was charged with misdemeanor battery for an alleged incident from May, but the signed affidavit said that charges would not be pressed.

Pena fought on the UFC roster from 2018 to 2021, competing seven times after winning on Season 27 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” His last bout was a split decision win over Alex Munoz in April.
