UFC's Rachael Ostovich describes alleged beating by husband: 'I coughed up blood'
Details of the alleged beating Rachael Ostovich took from her husband are out in the open.
On Wednesday, TMZ cited court documents in reporting Ostovich’s account of the domestic violence incident she claims occurred with her husband, MMA fighter Arnold Berdon, on Nov. 18 in Hawaii.
“After a night out with family, (Arnold Berdon) punched me repeatedly on the head, face, ribs, making me fall to the ground,” Ostovich said in her petition for a restraining order, which was granted on a temporary basis. “I gasped for breath and escaped thru (sic) balcony. I coughed up blood, threw up sev. times. Cracked orbital.”
TMZ also reported, citing the documents, that Ostovich alleged a past incident of domestic abuse with Berdon. On May 6, she claims, he left bruises on her legs by punching her repeatedly.
Ostovich, 27, was hospitalized with a fractured orbital bone, among other injuries, as a result of the Nov. 18 incident. Berdon, 27, has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder, though he had yet to be formally charged as of Wednesday. He remained in the custody of the Honolulu Police Department.
Berdon’s arrest came several days after what Ostovich’s management company, SuckerPunch Entertainment, described in a statement only as “a very unfortunate incident.” The Honolulu Star-Advertiserreported that Ostovich was hospitalized following an argument and assault early Sunday morning.
