    Do you want to see Nick Diaz ever fight in the UFC again? I'm not saying he's guilty as charged, but Hardy was never convicted/found guilty either, was he?

    Did you watch Conor-Floyd last year? Pretty sure Floyd actually did get convicted for beating his ex (or maybe just "holding her hostage" or some shit)

    Short of murder any NFL player that wants to transition to the UFC should be given a chance regardless of criminal history.

    Voted no for a couple reasons

    Not because I think people with bad pasts shouldn't be allowed into MMA because every pro sport has people who have done terrible shit and rebounded including this one

    Voted no because 1. The mainstream media is gonna pick this shit up and make the sport I like look even trashier than it already does and 2. because no one with 1 fight should be getting into the UFC unless they have an elite background in another combat sport. Like Bork and his NCAA championship

    My opinion is more one of ambivalence than anything. I don't really care... yet. One way or the other. I like the idea of a developmental deal but they better keep him on a short leash.

    No major issues with him getting a contract, he'll catch a beating eventually.

    I do have a big issue with Chris Curtis not getting a deal last night

    I like how all of you just label him as a piece of shit. I'm sure all of you aren't fucking perfect little angels yourself but no spotlight on you. Jon Jones is a pos as well but he's still p4p #1 so let him fight and move on.

    I'll be honest and ask, it's that a bad look for a cage fighter?

    EDIT: Plenty of Roman centurions were probably pretty badass

    The majority of us aren't women beaters though.

    That ship has sailed a long time ago. They let in CM Punk who looked like he regressed since his last fight with Mick Gall.

    Who's to say it will make it worse? There are plenty of fighters with fucked up backgrounds. Andrea KGB Lee's husband is a damn nazi and killed a guy for parking in his driveway.

    To be a women beater, that would imply that Sherdoggers have girlfriends or wives.

    I agree with TS. Let's see what the guys got, and hope he doesn't fuck up.

    That's not her it's her husband and no one gives a fuck about Andrea Lee

    People care about Greg Hardy

    And they're making the level of fighting worse by letting people in before they're ready. Let Bellator have the bum fights on their main cards enough of this shit. If you want Greg Hardy locked down just keep turning him out on the contender series until he has some experience, a 1-0 guy with no combat sports background on a UFC card is ridiculous
