Rachael Ostovich-Berdon is back in action at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale, facing Montana Stewart in a women’s flyweight division affair.
It would seem like Ostovich-Berdon and the blue team from the UFC Ultimate Fighter 26 remain friends to this day, which makes it easy to understand why Ostovich-Berdon had the time of her life on the reality show.
“I loved it, it was honestly one of the best experiences that I’ve ever had as far as fighting. It was a dream…honestly and I still think about it everyday, I wish I could go back…like it was that good. We (members of the TUF 26 cast) actually have a group DM on Instagram, basically the whole blue team…we all keep in touch with each other. Right now, we are all kind of getting into fight camps. I know everyone’s busy right now grinding, but we do keep in touch…we exchanged phone numbers. Its just really nice to have that, experiencing all the same challenges and going through the same difficulties,” Ostovich-Berdon said in an exclusive interview with Fightful’s James Lynch.
Ostovich-Berdon may have had a great time on the reality show, but she didn’t make it very far as the fighter lost to Barb Honchak in the quarterfinals.
The flyweight is currently undefeated under the UFC banner and not only does Ostovich-Berdon want things to stay that way, but she wouldn’t mind getting a bonus as well.
“I see myself winning…obviously, it could go anywhere and I’ll be OK with that. I’m really excited, I just hopefully will get a good fight on for each other and for the fans…entertain everybody. I hope we get some kind of fight of the night (bonus),” says Ostovich-Berdon.
UFC Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale takes place on Friday, July 6 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Brad Tavares and Israel Adesanya headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
