UFC women’s flyweight fighter Rachael Ostovich was hospitalized over the weekend in Hawaii after she was attacked by an unnamed assailant.
Sources close to the fighter confirmed that Ostovich was attacked and had been released from the hospital following an initial report from TMZ.
TMZ additionally reported that Ostovich had possibly suffered a broken orbital bone in the attack.
At this time there are very few details available, but Honolulu Police have reportedly opened a felony domestic violence investigation into the matter. No arrests have been made at this time.
Ostovich was just recently confirmed for her next fight against Paige VanZant on Jan. 19 in Brooklyn as part of the first ever UFC show on ESPN and ESPN+.
The UFC has made no statement regarding Ostovich’s condition in relation to her upcoming fight.
Ostovich joined the UFC after competing on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ season that crowned the first ever women’s flyweight champion.
In her UFC career, Ostovich has gone 1-1 thus far. Right now, it remains unclear if Ostovich will still attempt to compete in January.
Hololulu Police have released a statement confirming the assault suffered by Ostovich and the ongoing investigation into the matter:
“The Honolulu Police Department has opened a second-degree assault investigation for an incident involving a 27-year-old female victim and a 27-year-old male suspect. The victim and suspect were arguing prior to the assault. The victim suffered head injuries and was treated at a hospital.
“The incident took place at a Waianae residence on November 18 at 2 a.m. The investigation is continuing, and no arrest has been made at this time.”
