    Really important point too,

    The UFC are being cautious. I think they'd like to put him into the UFC but want to see the publics reaction first - makes sense.

    They let Jon Jones fight again after almost killing a pregnant lady. What he did was a about as disgusting as it can get, so I don't see why Hardy would not get into the UFC. Conor is still on the roster after trying to end fellow fighters careers doing what he did. UFC is about money, not morality.

    Exactly and Jones was convicted, Greg wasn't.

    Jones has had multiple chances to prove himself and failed every single time.

    I think the only reason they are much more cautious is that Greg is more well known, stronger spotlight.

    I can't lie though, I got fucking really excited watching him win the other night - he's just a beast a fucking beast. This is what happens when a Sher-Athlete enters the cage.

    Let him in. People acting like he beat on a soft skulled baby. Women are durable and I’m pretty sure genitically have thicker skulls than men . STop being so sexist.

    Honestly I don't care.
    For god's sake it's cage fighting, one of the most primitve sports on the planet.
    And it's not like he is the first guy with a criminal history competing in the UFC.
    At least he is now beating someone his size.

    The only thing that bothers me a bit is that it confirms the prejudice of criminals in MMA.

    I don't know how to feel about tbh. On one hand, I believe in second chances. On the other, I feel like men who beat on women are scum.

    I would like to know if the abuse was a one time thing or something more though.

    How many the people who said no listen to 2pac, celebrate Mike Tyson, root for Gustafsson etc.

    Selective outrage is at an all-time high and its so annoying.

    Not nearly the same

    Jones didn't go out with the intention of hitting someone

    Hardy purposely attacked someone.

    I say let him in so that the fighters that aren't okay with men beating up women can beat the living crap out of him.

    Makes for good entertainment.

    Not a fan of having him in the UFC.

    They've done it already with other bums, sure.

    I don't support that one bit either.

    Would your 'wife' say the same thing if you were 265 pounds?

    Doesn't martial arts exist partly to affect and influence the lives of people that have been troubled? To give them structure, integrity, to teach them ethics, control, restraint and reform them for better? Where would Nate Diaz be without BJJ? Where would half the guys on the roster be? Being an a level athlete can be a blessing and a curse, and Hardy ended up with millions just as a young kid, could get anything he wanted and all because he was just good at athletics. I think we should root for and cheer the guy on, to hope he becomes a shining example of why MMA can be such an awesome tool to facilitate change in a troubled persons' lives.

    To be honest I think she was paid off. But most likely they're both dirt bags

    In theory yes. But look at morons like War Machine, he became a bigger threat after he learned martial arts

    I honestly think she attacked him first and he lost it. What he did was obviously wrong, but the 911 call was initiated by him so unless hes the biggest idiot of all time (possible) she obviously initiated something.

    Either way Hardy seems like a head case and he fits right into MMA. Let's not act like there aren't bad guys in the UFC. Travis Brown and Rumble.both have been caught up in similar situations.
    He will be fighting on a UFC card in less than 6 months. They are dying for talent and ratings. NGannou was fighting in the UFC with what 3 years of experience? That's about what Hardy has.
