Jones Apologizes for UFC 232 Venue Change, Says Situation ‘Completely Out of My Control’

While Jon Jones had a predictably unfiltered response to rival Daniel Cormier regarding the irregular drug test that led to the relocation of UFC 232, “Bones” had a more thoughtful message to the fans affected by the venue change.

More On That Rachel Ostovich/Domestic Violence Situation

Female fighter Rachel Ostovich was supposed to face Paige VanZant at UFC on ESPN+1 in January, but a few days ago she was the victim of domestic violence and suffered a fractured orbital bone. Now the fight is off, and there’s a whole, big legal kerfluffle going on.

First, a statement from her management team:

Understandably, details are sparse as to what exactly went down. But TMZ Sports has some info about the restraining order Ostovich has gotten against her husband – who just happens to be a pro MMA fighter himself.

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich has filed for a restraining order against her MMA fighter husband, Arnold Berdon, in the wake of a violent incident over the weekend … TMZ Sports has learned.

Rachael filed for the order herself in Hawaii on Nov. 19 — and based on court docs, it appears the order was temporarily granted and is set to stay in effect until May 18, 2019.

As we previously reported, Ostovich was hospitalized with a broken orbital bone along with other injuries after an incident in Hawaii.

Multiple sources tell us … Ostovich is pointing the finger at Berdon and that’s why she’s filed the restraining order.

Cops have opened a felony domestic violence investigation but have not released the name of the suspect.

We spoke with a family member who is very close with Berdon, who tells us Arnold is seeking a lawyer and intends to defend himself against allegations he attacked his wife.

We’re told Berdon will argue he was attacked first and defended himself.

It sucks that this happened. Not just because a potentially big fight is off, but because a domestic violence is just crappy.

UFC 225: Is Alistair Overeem In A No-Win Situation

It surprised many when the UFC moved Alistair Overeem vs. Curtis Blaydes to the prelim main event of this Saturday’s UFC 225 card on FOX Sports 1.

But regardless of where the fight takes place, what’s in it for Overeem?

The 38-year-old is coming off a first round knockout loss to Francis Ngannou that snapped a two-fight win streak. He was unable to solve the champion in the heavyweight division, Stipe Miocic, in 2016 when the two faced off.

Is this a no-win situation for “The Reem” in the “Windy City” of Chicago?

To an extent, yes it is.

Blaydes is a 27-year-old rising contender in the UFC who scored the biggest win of his career in February when he defeated Mark Hunt. Overall, he is 9-1 with a no-contest, falling only to Ngannou when the doctor stepped in after the second round.

He is a big, strong heavyweight with a background in wrestling. And, Blaydes will be fighting in his hometown of Chicago in his biggest fight to date.

What’s there for Overeem to accomplish with a win? Outside of keeping his standing in the division, not much.

If the former Strikeforce champion destroys Blaydes, many will say “that’s what he should do.” If he earns a decision, most will likely view it as a loss in terms of putting him back in a No. 1 contender match anytime soon.

And if Blaydes earns the victory, Overeem’s days as a challenger to the UFC heavyweight title will be gone like all those heroes in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

For this weekend to be a success for Overeem, he needs to come out, take care of Blaydes in convincing fashion and make a bold post-fight speech in regards to who he wants next.

Anything short of that, and Overeem will be an oversight on a night packed with championship matches and big-name stars.
