Disgraced former NFL star Greg Hardy makes his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn, facing Allen Crowder.
Hardy, who has been accused of domestic violence in the past, is booked on the same card as Rachael Ostovich, who is a victim of domestic abuse and Crowder is wondering if that’s a good idea.
“The UFC, they’re all about making that money, and I highly doubt whoever done this thought about her,” Crowder said to MMA Junkie. “There is a chance they didn’t think about her, and that’s just totally wrong, especially after what she just went through. Really, it’s up to me to put a stop to what they’re trying to do and set a good example and show you’re not supposed to beat women, and give him a good lesson learned.”
UFC President Dana White has even come to the defense of Hardy, wanting the fans to give him a chance, despite the sordid past.
Crowder wants to get the finish against Hardy next month and he has a plan to get the job done.
“I seen him gassing out and me finishing him with elbows,” Crowder said.
UFC Fight Night Brooklyn takes place on Saturday, January 19 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
