Greg Hardy Plus Rachel Ostovich Equals a Very Interesting UFC Card

Greg Hardy likes to beat his women. Rachel Ostovich was beaten up by her man. Both are UFC fighters, and guess what? It appears both are going to be on the UFC on ESPN+1 card.

If you’ll recall, Hardy’s appearance on the Tuesday Night Contender Series drew a lot of ire from fans because, well, Hardy has a bit of moral baggage he carries around with him. You know, the whole domestic violence thing.

Ostovich, meanwhile, just had her orbital bone broken courtesy of her husband, but is overcoming that domestic violence trauma to be able to face Paige VanZant.

And the UFC has put both an abuser and a victim on the same card.

Some argue that this is kind of tone deaf on the UFC’s part.

Sure, maybe it is. But it’s not like Ostovich is going to be in danger of Hardy attacker her, is she?

What do you think? Is this much ado over nothing? Or definite weak sauce by the UFC?

Fired up Alexander Gustafsson Has Made Some Interesting Bout Proposals…

(This post originally appeared on MMAFrenzy.)

Alexander Gustafsson is still looking for his next fight, and the perennial, light-heavyweight contender has made some pretty interesting proposals on that front…

Gustafsson hasn’t fought now since May, 2017, when he took out Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109. “The Mauler” believed the win, and his #1 ranking would deliver him a rematch with the champ, Daniel Cormier. But, then the UFC dropped jaws throughout the sport by announcing Cormier will fight heavyweight champ, Stipe Miocic, on July 7th. That didn’t sit too well with the Swedish star.

Well, more recently Gustafsson has offered to welcome Luke Rockhold to the light-heavyweight division. But, following Yoel Romero’s failure to make weight for UFC 225, Dana White’s comments that the middleweight should move to 205, and Cormier’s  call for Gustafsson to fight Romero, “The Mauler” shared out this:

Now, of course, everyone and their dog would like to see Gustafsson fight Romero. But, so far, it doesn’t sound like the Cuban wrestler plans to leave middleweight behind. 

Gustafsson’s offer to step in for either Cormier or Miocic at UFC 226 is also, pretty, pretty interesting. If Cormier went down with an injury, one would think the UFC would tap another heavyweight contender to fight Miocic. But, if the heavyweight champ was sidelined, would the UFC have Gustafsson fight Cormier again? In a rematch at heavyweight?

Oezdemir is scheduled to fight “Shogun” on July 22th, so, if either one of those guys goes down, then Gustafsson would be an obvious option. All this aside, hopefully we see Gustafsson back in the cage, sooner than later.
