Wallace posted to his Facebook page discussing the whole situation, but has since deleted the post, one of the things that the fighter has said on the post is:

"I am not denying making some mistakes, I was in a very Violent relationship with Jessica, on her receiving end far more times then once or twice," Wallace wrote. "Detail is not important, I have moved on with my life and everyone can see that. I just wish she would and leave me alone."

Wallace will be appearing in court on December 7th to deal with the repercussions of accepting the guilty plea for domestic violence.

Wallace has also been released from the Australia based Xtreme Fighting Championships promotion. The company released a statement, which you can see below.

The XFC organization was notified yesterday through various media outlets, that Julian Wallace has plead guilty to a domestic violence charge, stemming from a domestic dispute on April 28, 2016. 

While Wallace will be sentenced December 7, XFC have stood Wallace down from all future commitments with the organization immediately. The organization requires all athletes to act in an ethical and responsible manner, as mandated by the XFC Fighter Contract. 

The prevention of domestic violence and the education of our athletes, both male and female, is of the utmost importance to the organization. XFC holds its athletes to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action if and when warranted. There is no statistical evidence that supports a link between domestic violence and the sport of mixed martial arts, and we are proud to work alongside the most promising athletes and coaches in the country, to continue to produce inspiring role models for the community.

XFC owners have volunteered extensively in the past with Domestic Violence campaigns, and will use this as an opportunity to increase their participation in raising awareness, and offering their support for anyone that may be in a similar situation. 

Wallace recently spent some time training with Team Alpha Male in California, and doesn't currently have a fight scheduled.
