Amateur MMA fighter Donovan Salvato was arrested for allegedly biting the testicles of his roommate after the two clashed, according to reports.
Salvato was held in Nashville’s Metro Jail in Tennessee for 12 hours after the incident.
Police reported that his victim, Abel Sosa, suffered a horrific laceration of 2.5 inches on his scrotum as well as a bleeding lip, head swelling and multiple bruises.
Salvato, who possesses a 3-1 record, was charged with domestic assault and bodily injury.
The argument reportedly started following a discussion about Salvato staying at photographer Sosa’s address – but without his name on the lease.
Salvato allegedly struck Sosa’s head and body before allegedly biting through his roommate’s pants.
The MMA fighter, however, claimed his roommate's injuries are due to men grappling and bumping into furniture in their living room.
Sosa has since spoken positively about the incident on social media.
“If you know this individual, do not trust your nuts around him,” Sosa told his followers in the accompanying caption to a photo of Salvato
“Literally the evidence I will be using in court is a piece of skin that he managed to rip from my testicles.
“I received three stitches at the VA hospital and multiple injections to prevent dental infection from spreading, right on veterans day. I should have good ol' Marine Corp [and] eye gouged the son of a b****. But so focused on maintaining control, [I] never threw a punch. Victories are won with composure..
“I need to write a book, or something about some of these stories I’ve encountered. Who can clearly say they got their testicles bit by a professional MMA fighter during a fight? I’ll wait….
“Nashville can be so wild that I’ve encountered more danger here than overseas to an extent.”

Sosa concluded: “If I do write a book about my nuts being bit, just know it will be one of those where the end starts at the beginning with a rewind so everyone can immediately get a mouthful first take!”

Salvato last competed in July last year, losing via decision to Jamie Vasquez at Johnathan Ivey’s Cage Fighting Championships 8.
