This fighter was part of the UFC from the years 2018 to 2021. Luis Pena was cut off from the UFC roster after his previous arrest pertaining to domestic violence. A month later after his second arrest and being cut off from the UFC, Pena has managed to run himself into trouble once again.

Pena fought a total of eight fights under the UFC banner. The fighter nicknamed “Violent Bob Ross” had a record of 9-3-0 in his entire MMA career. His most latest outing was against Alex Munoz in 2021 where he won the fight via decision. The fight took place in April and he was cut off from the roster in October.

Pena was arrested in October for allegedly striking his partner multiple times with a closed fist and knocking her on the ground. The fighter also beat up another woman who was a witness to this event. An audio of the 911 call from the woman requesting help later surfaced on the internet.
