The husband of UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich, Arnold Berdon, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder, USA Today reported.

Ostovich was hospitalized following an alleged argument and assault early Sunday in which she sustained a fractured orbital bone.

The injuries forced her to withdraw from her upcoming bout with Paige VanZant on Jan. 19.

No formal charges have been filed against Berdon, according to the report.

Ostovich’s management company, SuckerPunch Entertainment, released a statement Tuesday addressing the incident.

“Rachael is now home from the hospital with her family and will be going back for further check-ups on her orbital,” the statement read. “The family would like to ask for some privacy as they sort through this matter. We would like to thank the UFC for all their support on this matter as well as the fans and media for your concern.”

Ostovich has not released a statement of her own.
