On Wednesday, it was reported that UFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer’s husband Aaron Zalewski was arrested for attempted murder after a massive fight back in June. Brittney’s husband reportedly went “ballistic ” and tried choking her in retaliation. He allegedly threw Palmer, and she hit her head on a bedpost.
According to a report by TMZ Sports, Palmer was tossed to her bed and almost suffocated to death by Zalewski after the couple engaged in an argument over a phone call.
“Brittney told cops Zalewski yelled, ‘Pack your f-ing bags and go!’ – but wouldn’t let her leave”.
Police arrived around 1:25 a.m. on June 12, according to the report, at which time they arrested Zalewski on charges of attempted murder, spousal battery and criminal threats.
She struggled to breathe as he held her down for two minutes, she told police.
When Palmer managed to wiggle free, she says Zalewski proceeded to scratch his own arms and yell, “Why are you making me do this? I just wanted you to love me”.
Palmer has been an Ultimate Fighting Championship ring girl since 2011 after coming back from a sabbatical.

The UFC celebrity eventually escaped her home and called the police. He made the $1m bail and is now looking for a rematch with Palmer.
Two days after the incident, Palmer posted a picture of a message that read “Difficult roads often lead to attractive destinations” on her verified Twitter account.
