    Well the charges were dropped and expunged from his record.

    I'm not arguing that he was innocent, but it is what it is.

    You mean that 1-0 guy who's barely looked good while beating on cans? Nah. Not big on heavyweights who struggle to breathe after minute long fights. He's gonna get dominated by the first guy with semi-decent wrestling and the UFC is gonna get nothing but a worse rep from this.

    Adding him being a piece of shit to the mix just makes you wonder what the fuck the UFC is doing.

    Whatever version of Dana White existed in 2014 didn't seem to care. He was against it. Then he looked at his Top 10 Heavyweights and said "let's sign Greg Hardy and someone find out if any other NFLers are about to get cut for drugs or something. We need talent."

    Its not so much the UFC I'm curious about, its the media and the fans opinions I'm curious about.

    That's pretty shocking, as Dana is typically regarded as a beacon of consistency and honesty.

    What a scummy thing to say. Please have that conversation with your wife/sister/daughter and let us know how it goes?

    I think it stands as the only lie he's ever told. Will surely make people question his unshakable reputation as a shining light of honesty in an otherwise untrustworthy world.

    Give him the Black Beast for his ufc debut. I’d pay to see Lewis treat him like he did his ex wife.

    I'm fine with it.

    Every other professional sports seems to tolerate rate it to an extant. If Hardy can stick to punching guys in the face in a cage instead of women outside of it, i'm all for him seeing what sorta fighter he can become.

    He's not "in the UFC", he was signed to a developmental deal. This means the UFC will allow him to fight in designated promotions like LFA, and might bring him back to the Contender Series. He shouldn't be making his UFC debut any time soon.

    There are others with colored pasts (pun intended) that are in the UFC, what is the big deal if another one is added to the roster?

    It doesn't leave the UFC with a black eye, it leaves the UFC with another black guy. And he is huge, and he is "athletic" so sign his ass up! UFC needs more HW's.

    Hey bro they want equal rights,

    Also my wife is of the opinion, if you hit a bro and ignore warnings and keep doing it, you get whats coming to you.

    But I don't know the details of Gregs case - nor do I care. He's probably a shit bag but plenty are in MMA and everyone deserves another chance.

    I was in a situation like that. Ex gf kept slapping and punching me, I warned her and after that I put her in a RNC.

    Later she told everyone that I struck her..

    I hope not. I was going through the list, and we do have a 3-1 heavyweight, that Hu Yaozong guy from China they got to put on the China card, but everyone else is lightyears ahead of him in experience.

    I did add a poll, @Hardkore, because I think this is a legitimately good discussion and I'd like to see where people stand on this. By "UFC contract", I mean the deal they gave him which will eventually lead to him fighting inside the Octagon.
