TMZ reports that UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste was arrested on a domestic violence charge. A report from MMA Weekly confirms she was released from the Clarke County Detention Center on a $3,000 bond.

She was not present for the preliminary fights, but was seen on-camera at the beginning of the third-from-last fight of the night. UFC president Dana White commented on her absence from the early fights.

"Arianny is our baby. She has been with us for over five years. She is a good girl and an amazing ambassador for the UFC. I don't know all the details of what happened but we have her back and support her 100 percent," White told Yahoo! Sports.

Celeste was in Las Vegas for UFC 146, and worked weigh-ins on Friday. A UFC Octagon Girl's basic job is to hold up a card between rounds that display round numbers, but they also serve as ambassadors for the UFC, meeting fans, doing autograph signings, modeling UFC gear and serving as one of the faces of the UFC. She hosts the UFC's web show, "UFC Ultimate Insider."

She has worked for the UFC since 2006, and has also modeled for Playboy, Maxim and FHM.
