Robby Ostovich

Heading into next Saturday’s Trinity Kings headliner at the Hawaii Convention Center, Robby Ostovich is seeking the next step in his fight journey.

As he prepares to face Alaska’s Niko Novelli on March 14 in a lightweight bout that is set to be streamed on UFC Fight Pass, Ostovich knows he’ll be fighting for something bigger than himself.

“It means a lot and it means it’s the first step in a long journey I want to take to represent my family, represent God and my faith and represent my team,” Ostovich told KHON2’s Rob DeMello. “This is such an amazing opportunity to be a main event on a UFC Fight Pass show and I can’t wait to go out there and show what I got.”

Ostovich, who is the younger brother of the UFC Rachael Ostovich, has a career record of 8-5-1, while Novelli will bring an 8-2 record. However, Ostovich has won three straight fights and hasn’t lost since June 2018. After an undefeated 2019, he hopes his 2020 debut will bring similar success.

“Last year, I started building that base. Hopefully this year, I’m gonna make some noise,” he said. “That’s what this fight is for me — make some noise against a talented fighter from Alaska.”
