allen-crowder-face-greg-hardy-rachael-ostovich

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.”

Rachael Ostovich came out after her domestic violence situation and spoke to the media about why she will still be fighting Paige VanZant in January. While nobody would have faulted her for pulling out of the fight, Ostovich explains why there was no way that would happen.

She spoke exclusively to Hawaii’s KHON News about why the fight is still on.

“Although this is a very difficult time for me and my family, I felt that this fight in January was important. I felt that it was extremely important to me to follow through with it; Not only for me, but first for my daughter and other people that might be going through similar situations. I want to take a stand against domestic violence and show others that it’s okay to come out and speak about it and not be quieted.

I feel like I have to do this. This is something that can’t be taken away from me. I want to use this big, worldwide UFC platform to show people that, don’t let anyone or anything come between you, your dreams, and your career.”
