UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich attacked in ‘domestic violence’ incident

Rachael Ostovich was badly beaten this weekend when in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The 27-year-old UFC fighter had one of the bones in her face broken – an broken orbital bone – and is in bad condition with ‘major injuries’, according to a report from TMZ.

On Monday morning she was released from the hospital. 

The attack happened at a very bad time: the brunette beauty was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant in January. Considering her serious injury, it is more than likely she will have to cancel the fight.

According to her Instagram page, she wed to fighter Arnold Berdon, 27, in April 2016 and together they have daughter Ruby Rose.

They are supposed to meet up at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on January 19. 

The orbital bone is located around the eye socket. If it is fractured, it takes months to heal.

The Honolulu police department spoke directly with the site. 

They revealed that a ‘felony domestic violence investigation’ is already underway.

That means that the person who attacked her is likely someone she knows as it has been labeled ‘domestic violence.’
