Rachael Ostovich reportedly suffered broken orbital bone in attack.
UFC flyweight Rachael Ostovich was reportedly attacked in her native Hawaii "by someone close to her" and needed to be hospitalized for major injuries she sustained, including a broken orbital bone. According to TMZ Sports, Ostovich was in Honolulu when the incident took place and police have reportedly opened a felony domestic violence investigation.
The 27-year old fighter is currently scheduled to face Paige VanZant in the biggest fight of her MMA career on January 19 in the UFC’s debut on ESPN+. According to MMA site Bloody Elbow, Ostovich is currently 1-1 in the UFC, and 4-4 overall. VanZant, 24, has not fought since she broke her arm in a loss to Jessica Rose-Clark last January.
Ostovich's team has not yet commented on the vicious attack but if she did, in fact, suffer a broken orbital bone it doesn't bode well for her big match against VanZant.
