UFC and Bellator veteran Lavar Johnson has reportedly been sentenced to five years in prison, after admitting in a Fresno court that he beat his girlfriend.

According to a report from ABC 30.com, the 38 year-old Johnson plead guilty to the charges that stemmed from the assault, and apologized for his actions. Johnson was reportedly seeking a reduced, three year sentence, but was sentenced to five.

The heavyweight fighter hasn’t fought since 2014 when he was submitted by Cheick Kongo at Bellator 123.
