In November, Ostovich suffered a fractured orbital bone, allegedly during an attack by her husband, Arnold Berdon, a fellow MMA fighter.
Tweeter @MacMallyMMA took aim at Hardy's past when he tweeted: "Greg Hardy just said he didn't know the shots he landed on his ex girlfriend were illegal, either".
