Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) star Rachael Ostovich feels grateful and excited to be back in the ring after Domestic Violence.

Impressively, Rachael who recently recovered from her severe facial injury played pretty good and got the best out of her opponent. Hope in the near future she gets in an even better shape helping her regain the sharpness she carried in her career prior to the incident.
