Julianna Pena is an accomplished MMA fighter, The Ultimate Fighter 18 winner and now “junk punter.”
Pena was arrested early Sunday morning for assaulting two men at a bar in Spokane, Washington. Pena and her training partner Josh Gow tried running into Zola’s bar after having a street fight outside of the resident. Witnesses claim that Gow needed to use the restroom in the bar to wash blood from his face and the owners wouldn’t let him enter. Pena became irate when they weren’t allowed in the establishment and things escalated.
Witnesses said that Pena kicked a bar employee in the groin and then, while outside the business, kicked the owner in the groin twice. Gow did not get physical with anyone, witnesses said, and was described as being clearly drunk. The two attempted to enter Zola’s again, witnesses said, but were locked out. Gow then rubbed his bloody face on the bar’s front window, according to witnesses.
The UFC hasn’t announced any punishments for Pena and the case is still under investigation.
