Allen Crowder is set to face Greg Hardy on the UFC’s ESPN inaugural debut. The card just so happens to be Hardy’s first time under the UFC banner. Word got out yesterday that Hardy was added to the card and given his history with domestic abuse, some questions were asked. Most importantly, “Why would the UFC put a domestic abuser like Hardy on the same card as a domestic violence survivor like Rachael Ostovich?”. Dana White came out and gave the answer to that.
“She’s totally cool with it.”
Oh, well in that case…
Let’s be real. It’s bad form of the UFC, who have consistently said there is no place for domestic abuse in their organization, to continue employing these guys. it’s even more inappropriate to put someone like Hardy on the same card as Ostovich, no matter how ‘Totally cool with it’ she may be.
Hardy’s opponent, Allen Crowder, is certainly not cool with it and had some thoughts of his own on the situation.
“I definitely want to win this fight for her. I’m very against men beating women. I’m definitely not a woman, so he’s going to have a lot harder time with me than he did the last person.
It’s definitely a bad situation and I don’t know how she’s taking it; Best of luck to her in her fight. I’m going to get that win for her and we’ll go from there.”
