Greg Hardy Gets Disqualified In UFC Debut

Controversial former National Football League star Greg Hardy received a torrent of criticism online after his disqualification from his UFC debut following an illegal knee against opponent Allen Crowder at UFC Fight Night in Brooklyn.

White said Hardy was only booked on the card with Ostovich's approval, but ESPN's Ariel Helwani blasted the decision to highlight Hardy on the card earlier this week on First Take, calling it "tone-deaf". "And I just didn't think that Greg Hardy, considering the fact that he's just 3-0, that he's never made it past the first minute in any of his professional fights and he's only been doing this essentially a year and a half, I didn't think he earned the right to be on this historic card".

The UFC went out on a limb when it infamously brought in Greg Hardy as a fighter.

"The guy deserves to make a living", White continued.

Tweeter @MacMallyMMA took aim at Hardy's past when he tweeted: "Greg Hardy just said he didn't know the shots he landed on his ex girlfriend were illegal, either".

While VanZant admittedly got "stir-crazy" while recovering, it did allow her to marry recent Bellator signee Austin Vanderford late past year. "It's been a long journey to get here, so I'm gonna go out there and get the big win". He called the MMA reporter "the type of guy that finds something in everything". I'm going to fix what I did wrong. What do I care whether he likes it or not?

Ostovich withdrew from the fight with VanZant, but after getting a second opinion from a doctor, she resolved to return and fight on the Fight Night 143 card. In the post-fight interview inside the Octagon, VanZant admitted she felt a pop in the arm of Ostovich.
