UFC’s Rachael Ostovich’s Husband Arrested For Breaking Her Orbital Bone & Attempted Murder
This week, the news came down that Rachael Ostovich had to suddenly pull out of her fight with Paige VanZant due to brutal injuries she suffered during an attack over the weekend. It turns out UFC Flyweight was hospitalized after suffering a broken orbital bone following an alleged domestic attack by “someone close to her.”
That someone was her husband and father of her child. MMA fighter Arnold Berdon has reportedly been arrested on attempted murder charges after he brutally assaulted Ostovich during an argument at their home in Hawaii.
“Cops in Honolulu opened a domestic violence investigation earlier this week … and now police officials tell us 27-year-old Arnold Berdon — Ostovich’s husband and father of her child — was arrested Tuesday evening on suspicion of 2nd degree attempted murder.”
According to Hawaii News Now, Ostovich wrote that Berdon punched her repeatedly on the head, face, and ribs during the attack which left her gasping for breath. Also in the temporary restraining order, obtained by Hawaii News Now, Ostovich describes how she had to escape through the balcony and that she coughed up blood and vomited several times.
The Honolulu, Hawaii, native was set to fight Paige VanZant (7-4) on Jan. 19 in the first card ever on ESPN.
