Breaking News

The estranged husband of UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich just got 4 years probation in his domestic violence case … stemming from a violent attack back in November. 

Arnold Berdon — who’s also an MMA fighter — was initially arrested for attempted murder after Ostovich claimed he beat the hell out of her and fractured her eye socket. 

Ostovich initially pulled out of a high-profile UFC fight with Paige VanZant due to the injury — but was later cleared by a different doctor. Ostovich ultimately lost the fight. 

As for Berdon … after his initial arrest, prosecutors downgraded the charge to 2nd-degree assault — and he pled no contest back in March. 

Berdon was sentenced on Thursday to 4 years probation — which appears to be a good deal for Berdon considering he was facing up to 5 years in prison. 

Ostovich filed for divorce from Berdon after the attack — and that case is still pending.
