Domestic Violence Rears Its Ugly Head Yet Again, Likely Nixing UFC Fight

Paige VanZant was supposed to face Rachel Ostovich at UFC on ESPN+1 in January, but that fight might not be happening.

As per TMZ Sports, Ostovich had to go to the hospital with a possible broken orbital bone courtesy of some domestic violence.

Sadly, Ostovich isn’t the only female fighter on the UFC roster to have to deal with this crap. Andrea Lee had trouble in August with her man.

Anyway, here’s TMZ Sports:

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich — who was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant in January — was attacked in Hawaii and sources tell us it was so serious, she’s being hospitalized for major injuries.

Multiple sources tell TMZ Sports … Ostovich was in Honolulu when the incident took place. Our sources tell us she’s believed to have suffered a broken orbital bone.

We’re told Ostovich’s attacker is someone close to her.

If Ostovich did, in fact, suffer a broken bone in her face, it would almost certainly mean her January 19 fight with Paige VanZant at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn would be off.

Gus Predicts Jones’ Head Will ‘Bounce Off The Canvas’ At UFC 232

Alexander Gustafsson is finally getting another crack at former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones as the two lock horns for the undisputed 205-pound title at UFC 232 on Dec. 29 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The rematch comes over five years after Gustafsson originally lost to Jones via unanimous decision back at UFC 165, which remains one of the best UFC title fights of all time.

Leading up to the reboot, Gustafsson is feeling extremely confident. Maybe it’s because he’s a better fighter than he was back in 2013 or maybe it’s because Jones, who will be returning from his United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) suspension, has competed just twice since January of 2015. Either way, “The Mauler” is ready to roll.

“I don’t have the same respect for Jones as I did five years ago,” Gustafsson recently told MMANytt.

“I’ll knock him out in the fourth,” he continued. “Jon Jones’ head will bounce off the canvas in the fourth round.”

For the record, Jones has never been knocked out. In fact, minus his knockout victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 that was later overturned to a no contest and his disqualification against Matt Hamill back in 2009, Jones has never lost a fight. The closest he has ever come came against Gustafsson five years ago, but “Bones” ultimately defended his title even though he swears he didn’t train for the fight.

Gustafsson, who has played third fiddle to Jones and Cormier over the past couple of years, is arguably better than he ever has been. The 31-year-old is coming off a spectacular knockout finish over former title challenger Glover Teixeira last year and a three-round decision win over Jan Blachowicz back in 2016 in which Gustafsson flashed an evolved ground game to control Blachowicz with takedowns.

Only time will tell if Gustafsson can actually take out Jones, but it’s going to get real interesting over the next couple of months as the two light heavyweights begin to trade verbal barbs. This is simply just the tip of the iceberg.

David Green named as head of Bellator in Europe

Scott Coker

As Bellator 206 ‘Mousasi vs MacDonald’ took place September 29, 2018 exclusively on DAZN, Bellator MMA dropped another announcement. David Green was officially named as head of Bellator’s European operation.

Bellator 206 “Mousasi vs. MacDonald” took place September 29, 2018 at SAP Center in San Jose, California. Before the co-main event had even taken place, Bellator MMA had more news to announce.

Company President Scott Coker announced that David Green would officially become “Head of Bellator Europe,” reporting to Coker and overseeing Bellator’s European expansion. This expansion is set to include an all new Western Europe-based fight series, details of which were not fully available in said announcement. Coker did offer these comments.

“We are pleased to welcome David to the Bellator team. His experience and knowledge of the U.K. market makes him a great addition to the organization. We look forward to him being an integral part of Bellator’s growth as we continue to expand our footprint within the region.”

Prior to accepting this position with Bellator, Green was the founder and CEO of BAMMA dating back to its inception in 2009. Green oversaw BAMMA’s TV rights negotiations and partnerships for 38 successful events held all across Europe. Obviously that body of experience bodes well for Bellator’s European plans going forward.

Domestic Violence Rears Its Ugly Head for UFC Fighter Andrea Lee

Thus far, Andrea Lee’s short UFC career has seen her win in her sole trip to the Octagon, and then get totally embroiled in a public uproar over her husband’s Nazi tattoos. And now her husband, Donny Aaron, is accused of committing all sorts of ugly domestic violence against her.

This is not how UFC careers are supposed to go.

The details are pretty horrific, and they paint an awful picture of Aaron, who will soon have a warrant out for his arrest according to MMAFighting.

An arrest warrant is “forthcoming” for the husband of UFC fighter Andrea Lee, per the Shreveport (La.) Police Department.

Donny Aaron will be facing charges of false imprisonment and domestic violence battery stemming from an incident that occurred late night Aug. 4 into the morning hours of Aug. 5, according to an incident report obtained by MMA Fighting from the Shreveport PD. MyMMANews.com was the first to publish information from the report Tuesday.

Shreveport PD spokesperson Cpl. Angie Willhite told MMA Fighting on Wednesday that an arrest warrant is “forthcoming.”

The police incident report states that officers responded to a domestic incident involving two people who have been legally married for approximately five years with one child together in the early morning hours of Aug. 5. Photographs were taken and detectives were notified, but no contact was made with the suspect. Lee sustained a minor injury in the alleged attack, per the report. The report indicates that there was a weapon used in the alleged battery.

Here’s hoping Lee is able to get back into the cage soon and put all this crap behind her.
