Back in November, UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich reported a domestic abuse situation after her husband, MMA fighter Arnold Berdon, allegedly struck her in the face, head, and ribs. According to TMZ Sports, Berdon has pleaded no contest to the 2nd-degree assault charge and will most likely not have to go to jail.
The report states that the two got into a heated argument which then allegedly resulted in Berdon getting physical with Ostovich. The fighter suffered a broken orbital bone and eventually pulled out of her fight against Paige VanZant. Her fight against VanZant was eventually rescheduled to January, with VanZant ultimately winning the fight.
Audio of the entire altercation was obtained by Hawaii News Now. In the clip above, you can hear a man who sounds like Berdon, yelling "I'm going to f*cking murder you."
While the charge carries a 5-year prison sentence, Berdon was told by the judge that he will most likely have to complete a domestic violence intervention program and go on probation. Ostovich issued a statement via her attorney saying she's "satisfied that Arnold is accepting responsibility for his actions and getting the needed help so that he can be the best father to our daughter."
