Paige VanZant, the America based mixed-martial artist recently mentioned that she wanted to cry when last month she came to know about the things that unfolded around Rachael Ostovich, her opponent scheduled for a match.
It was reported that Ostovich got attacked by Arnold Berdon, her husband who is also a fellow fighter. She suffered from the fracture of the orbital bone. Later, Berdon was arrested with charges of second-degree felony and assault in Honolulu. At that time, Ostovich assumed that she might not be capable enough to fight against VanZant for the UFC to be held on 19th January in Brooklyn. Just a week after that, she went for follow up on her condition with the doctor. She was then cleared by the physician to train for the match. Ostovich told in her statement that she wanted to go for the fight but her bout issue was back on.
VanZant beamed that this was a sheer sign of the mental toughness that Ostovich flaunted. She also added that she doesn’t know all the details of the incident but when Ostovich sprung back and wanted to continue to the fight, it was clear that she is a strong person, both emotionally and physically.
