From the UFC they have not yet expressed themselves about it and the world of MMA is waiting expectantly for a statement about it, because the fighter is already a repeat offender.

It is the second time that Peña, 28, has been arrested this year. In June, he was arrested on charges of robbery and larceny, battery and criminal conduct after a fight with his girlfriend in Coral Springs, Florida. The robbery and theft complaint was filed, but other charges continue and Peña has pleaded not guilty. The case is scheduled for a hearing on October 28.
