Former UFC fighter Nicco Montano has claimed she was assaulted Wednesday and had to receive medical attention following the alleged incident that took place at a hotel in Texas.

The former women’s flyweight champion revealed the details of the harrowing incident on her Instagram story. Montano said she was assaulted by a guy named Justin Watson in a hotel room.

“Tonight Justin Watson stood on my neck and stomped my face in, then kept kicking me and shoving my hair into his fist and the corner of the bed frame,” the 32-year-old wrote on her Instagram story.

“I got away for a second to run down the hall (naked) screaming for my life as he tried to drag me back by my hair. Luckily someone from the hotel heard my screams and came to [my] rescue. I’m stuck in Texas, not knowing where he is and scared.”


She said she was hospitalized following the alleged assault, adding that she was “lucky to have the technique and strength” to defend myself. She also thanked her fans for their well wishes and support.
