Arnold Berdon, a professional mixed martial artist, and husband to UFC flyweight Rachael Ostovich has been arrested and charged with attempted murder. The arrest comes several days after Berdon was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute with his wife which resulted in Ostovich being hospitalized and suffering a broken orbital bone.
Berdon, 27, allegedly attacked Ostovich during an argument early Sunday morning at their home in the Waianae area of Honolulu County.
On Tuesday, Ostovich filed for and was granted a temporary restraining order against Berdon. The order expires May 19, 2019. The case is still under investigation and the attempted murder charge could be changed according to a report from MMA Fighting.
Ostovich was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant on January 19, 2019 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. That fight is now off.
