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?

Midnight Mania! Domestic Violence Won’t Stop Ostovich: ‘I Want To Take a Stand’

Rachael Ostovich

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Rachael Ostovich opened up about the reason she has opted to continue with her scheduled January 19th bout against Paige VanZant despite recently suffering injury from a brutal domestic violence incident that she reported had her coughing up blood as her husband punched her repeatedly in the face and body. She said she felt like she ‘have to do this’ because the platform gives her an opportunity to stand tall for other victims of domestic violence. Via KHON2.com:

“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 its okay to come out and speak about it, and not be quiet.

“I’m extremely grateful and blessed for my support system. My family, who has done so much for me and has kept me together and kept me strong. I feel like I am- like I have to do this. This is something that can’t be taken away from me, because I want to use this big, worldwide UFC platform to show people that, don’t let anyone or anything come between you and your career.”

Mr. Berdon, her husband, has pleaded innocent to the charges, downgraded from attempted murder, posted his $ 75,000 dollar bail, and is currently free until his next court date, December 18, 2018. He is under a temporary restraining order that extends to their 5-year-old child.

Ostovich is scheduled to face VanZant at the UFC’s ESPN+ debut January 19th in Brooklyn. Her training is limited currently, but she will transition back to full contact after getting a second opinion on the severity of her injuries.

Her incident is one of several to affect high-profile UFC fighters, including Jessica Rose-Clark and Andrea Lee. MMA, according to an HBO study, suffers from a much higher incidence of domestic violence than the general population, or even the NFL. In fact Dana White recently signed former NFL player Greg Hardy to a development contract after his history with domestic violence ended his football career.

They also are promoting a cross-promotion superfight between Darrion Caldwell and Kyoji Horiguchi that is going to be awesome.

This exhibition bout, of course, is still happening as well, which is going to bring an insane amount of attention to the event.

Showing great knockouts is tried and true, but still a good way to promote fights.
