Former NFL All-Pro Greg Hardy will make his UFC debut on January 19th on the UFC’s first card on ESPN+. The problem? It’s on the same card as UFC flyweight Rachael Ostovich, who only weeks ago suffered a horrendous domestic violence event. Whether or not one believes Hardy should get a license or compete in the UFC is one issue, but the optics and message of booking them on the same card is impossibly self defeating and idiotic. In addition, ESPN plays a role of complicity here. This one is impossible to defend.
