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?

Live Chat: Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson 3 and Bellator 145 previews plus more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the chat, we finally get to look ahead to fights this weekend. First up on Friday is Bellator 145, which is a tent pole event, although lacks a bit in star power. Still, the main card has good fights, particularly the two top bouts on the card. Will Brooks defends his title against Marcin Held and Patricio Freire also puts his title on the line for the third time against Daniel Straus. Both of these should be excellent fights and we’ll talk about them both.
