UFC women’s flyweight Rachael Ostovich has used preparation for her first fight in 23 months to launch an insightful calendar and beauty page. She called the fans her “babies” and admitted that she worked “day and night” on the recordings.
Hawaiian stunner Ostovich takes on Gina Mazany on Saturday’s UFC Fight Night tentative ticket and has interspersed clips from the Las Vegas weigh-in with calls encouraging her more than 728,000 Instagram followers to pre-order her racy calendar for 2021 .
The footage from the photo shoot shows the 29-year-old in a row of colorful swimsuits, who looks seductively into the camera and kneels on the beach.
“So much for which I can be grateful,” announced Ostovich, wishing her admirers a happy harvest festival.
“It’s so crazy to see everything come to life. I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for 2021.
“Check it out and show your girl some love.”
Ostovich has just completed a one-year ban reduced to eight months after testing positive for the banned substance Ostarine, which was discovered in tainted dietary supplements.
Her only complaint about going back to action was the weight reduction it took to hit the limit she did after settling on her fight week base and doing a series of tests including Covid-19 checks.
“My midsection is a little fluffy,” she reported earlier in the week. “The human body is so interesting.
“I really had to sit down and thank my body for going through all of these changes. I’m learning not to take my health for granted.
“I only have one body. I am so happy that I made positive changes to take better care of myself.”
Ostovich is aiming for her first win in nearly three years and her first UFC win after losing her last two fights by submission. She last appeared when she was beaten by Paige VanZant in January 2019.
American Mazany last won a UFC fight more than three years ago and has subsequently suffered three direct setbacks, including a 22-second demolition by Julia Avila in June.

“I was just talking to him in the next room,” she said when asked about the idea in the opening question of her last press conference before the fight. “I have to ask him for a discount code.”
Discussing her long wait to fight again, she said, “This roller coaster hasn’t stopped – there was no endgame for this one.
“I don’t even know how the whole thing [doping] Situation even happened. The thing with [doping authority] USADA’s technology is so good it can trace things back years, things that you unknowingly consumed.
“There are no gyms in Hawaii, and even without Covid, island life has made things more difficult.
“I know that [Mazany] needs victory just like me. That is serious.
“This could be my last fight – I see it that way. I feel really good.”
