    Ostovich was hospitalised over the past weekend with serious facial injuries, which made her pull of the much-anticipated scheduled fight with another UFC icon, Paige VanZant, slated for 19th January. 

    Ostovich’s husband, 27 year-old Arnold Berdon, is alleged to have assaulted her, which prompted Honolulu police to subsequently open a domestic violence investigation. Ostovich was shortly released from hospital, and she then joined her family after having been issued a temporary restraining order against her husband, which prohibits contact with him, while she seeks some privacy until the matter is resolved, according to Brian Butler, the founder and CEO of the portal Suckerpunch.

    If convicted, Berdon could face life in prison with the possibility of parole. As soon as the manhunt was launched, he took down his social media accounts, which many netizens immediately took note of, sharing their sympathies with the allegedly assaulted woman and praising her sporting achievements and looks.

    Ostovich shot to fame after partaking in the reality show The Ultimate Fighter. So far, she boasts eight professional bouts, consisting of four wins and four defeats.
