A day ago, Rachael Ostovich became the latest fighter to get released by the UFC. The UFC President Dana White already confirmed that the fans will see mammoth fighter cuts until next year. We have already observed Yoel Romero leaving the promotion and Anderson Silva being released. Rachael Ostovich follows these veterans to move out of the UFC.
The former UFC fighter, Ostovich, took to Twitter and lashed out at the fans’ who mocked her cut. She tweeted, “If you on your only fan game making that money…GET IT GIRL….but all you weirdos saying “OF” next for me..like that’s my only option can kiss my a**.”
Rachael Ostovich made her UFC debut in 2017 with an armbar submission. She was a fan-favorite even before she inked a deal with the UFC. Unfortunately, she had a lackluster run at the promotion’s flyweight division and went on a three-fight losing streak.
She fought recently on November 28, wherein she succumbed to a T/KO loss against Gina Mazany. Ostovich was unranked throughout her promotional run. A couple of wins could have sealed her spot in top-15 female flyweights, but now she will have to ply her trade elsewhere.
Rachael Ostovich has an unimposing MMA record of 4 wins and 6 losses. Prior to the UFC, she fought at Invicta FC, where she had a 2-2 record.

What’s next on cards for Rachael Ostovich?
Right after the news of her release broke out, Ostovich posted on Instagram and wrote, “Every end is a new beginning. @ready4warr with the chichi chop.”
The former UFC flyweight contender took her release on the chin and hinted at a new dawn of her MMA career. With her current stint at fighting, it’s tough to predict where she will land up next.
Moving back to Invicta FC or getting into a prospective deal with other promotions like Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), Bellator MMA, or Professional Fighter’s League (PFL) can be on her checklist next. However, there’s little probability of these promotions signing her in, considering her record.
Fans will hope to see her get a shot and kick-starting her career sooner rather than later. Which fight promotion will be an ideal one for Rachael Ostovich as of now?
