However, before the fighter makes his return to action, some personal matters were dealt with in the form of a domestic battery case from this past May.
Johnson was arrested on May 6 in Florida after his then girlfriend accused the UFC veteran of picking her up against her will. Johnson has agreed to a plea deal with the Palm Beach County prosecutors according to TMZ Sports, which will see the fighter avoid jail time.
As a part of the plea agreement, a soon to be returning Johnson will have to enter a pretrial diversion program that will include attending and completing an anger management class. The class must be completed by October 21 or Johnson could be facing the aforementioned jail time or other legal issues.
The UFC veteran has been involved in a series of domestic violence issues that began in 2009 and have continued through this year. Johnson has not publicly commented on the matter, which the fighter can now put behind him.
