Via Hawaii News Now:
A key part of the audio recording includes Ostovich’s life being threatened.
“I’m going to murder you. I’m going to f*****g murder you,” Ostovich’s attacker can be heard yelling as she cries.
At one point, Ostovich is quiet. Sources say that’s because she’d fallen unconscious.
Eventually, Ostovich was able to escape.
In the video, she can be seen dropping about 10 feet from a lanai before getting up and stumbling away nude.
The two are getting divorced. Ostovich is preparing for her next UFC fight, which will come on ESPN’s first ever UFC event.
