The husband of UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich, Arnold Berdon, has reportedly been arrested for attempted murder following the alleged assault that left Ostovich with a fractured orbital bone. 

According to TMZ on Tuesday, Berdon has also been given a temporary restraining order. He's still in jail in Honolulu, with bail yet to be set.

Ostovich's injuries saw the 27-year-old pull out of her scheduled women's flyweight matchup with Paige Vanzant in January at UFC Fight Night 143: Brooklyn.

Hawaii News Now's Lynn Kawano reported Ostovich had filed a restraining order detailing further allegations, with the assault said to have taken place at the pair's home in Waianae:

Berdon turned himself in on Tuesday:

According to Hawaii News Now, Ostovich said in her filing of the restraining order that Berdon also attacked her in May.

TMZ reported on Sunday that Ostovich had been attacked by "someone close to her," but no arrests were initially made. 

According to Tuesday's report, a family member of Berdon has said he will "vigorously" deny all allegations in court. The 27-year-old is also a professional MMA fighter and could face up to life without parole if convicted.

Ostovich lost her last fight against Montana De La Rosa at The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated Finale in July and has a 1-1 record in the UFC.
