Per Gabe Killian (@GabeKillianMMA) and The MMA Kings (@mma_kings), another exciting women’s flyweight bout between TUF competitors Rachel Ostovich-Berdon and Karine Gevorgyan has been added to the TUF 26 Finale this Friday.
Rachel Ostovich (3-3) competed on Team Gaethje and was the number ten ranked seed in the house. Ostovich defeated the number seven seed, Melinda Fabian, in the opening round of the tournament to move on to the quarterfinals. However, the popular Hawaiin fighter was eliminated from the bracket when she lost a unanimous decision to Barb Honchack on episode ten. Prior to entering the house, Ostovich was a staple in Invicta FC’s flyweight division, with four of her six professional fighters under the banner.
Karine Gevorgyan (3-2) also competed on Team Gaethje where she was seeded number thirteen. The Armenian native was knocked from the bracket by DeAnna Bennet in the second episode. All three of “Princess'” career victories come by way of submission.
