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.
