Rachel Ostovich Releases Details Of Alleged Assault By Her Husband

By Nathan Zur Nov 22, 2018

Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight Rachael Ostovich has released harrowing details of the alleged attack by her husband which left her with a broken orbital bone as well as other injuries, forcing her to withdraw from a high profile bout against Paige VanZant early next year.

Ostovich’s husband, fellow mixed martial artist Arnold Berdon, has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and was arrested by the Honolulu Police. He is still being held in custody.

An excerpt from Ostovich’s petition for a restraining order, posted by TMZ, details her recollection of what happened on the night of the attack:

“After a night out with family, [Arnold Berdon] punched me repeatedly on the head, face, ribs, making me fall to the ground,” Ostovich said. “I gasped for breath and escaped thru [sic] balcony. I coughed up blood, threw up sev. times. Cracked orbital.”

The report also mentions that this attack was not an isolated incidence, as Ostovich claims that on May 6 of this year Berdon attacked her by punching her legs, which resulted in bruising.

Berdon is facing a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted as a result of the attack. This is the second time this year that a competitor in the UFC women’s flyweight division was attacked by her husband, with Donny Aaron, husband and trainer of Andrea Lee, also charged with domestic violence back in August.
