    UFC bantamweight Irwin Rivera was arrested and jailed on Thursday on two counts of first-degree premeditated murder.

    Online arrest records for the Palm Beach County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office show Rivera was booked into custody at 12:08 p.m. on Thursday at the Main Detention Center in West Palm Beach. No bond has been set for the 31-year-old fighter. Multiple requests for comment to the office’s public information officer went unreturned, and a dispatch officer said he couldn’t provide any information on the case.

    Rivera’s manager Ali Abdelaziz did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A UFC official provided a statement to MMA Fighting confirming Rivera’s career is on pause pending an investigation by the promotion.
