UFC fighter Anthony Johnson, who was arrested in 2009 on charges of domestic violence and two other misdemeanor charges, pleaded nolo, which is essentially no contest, to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, penal code 243, and the court dismissed the other two charges as part of the proceedings. A judge in Alameda County, CA has sentenced Johnson to 1 day in jail, 3 years probation, 8 hours community service and 1 year of domestic violence counseling. He also has been ordered to re-appear in front of the judge on September 7 to determine any restitution for court costs, as well as provide proof of the domestic violence counseling and the community service. The case has now been closed, pending the proceedings on September 7, and the additional time for the domestic violence counseling.

Not sure what to think here!?!?!? I mean, domestic violence is a very vauge term. And means different things in different states. Glad to see he wont be doing "any" jail time. And shouldn't miss any future fights from this.
