Taking to Instagram, Olivi expressed her gratitude to Kat Day, a UFC equipment specialist, who came to her rescue with some emergency tailoring. Olivi shared a picture of herself in the dress with a caption that read:

“We’re in Jacksonville for our ABC card this weekend and I still haven’t posted much from UFC 289 in Vancouver! What a beautiful city, great fight action and quite a few laughs. Also special gigantic thanks to @neonshowgirl for the emergency tailoring of a not-appropriate-for-work slit on this dress lol.… see ya from DUUUUVAL this weekend!”

Olivi’s post highlighted the challenges presenters sometimes face in ensuring their wardrobe choices are suitable for the professional setting. Thanks to the timely intervention of Day, Olivi was able to avert a potentially embarrassing situation.
