Last night, ESPN said that the former NFL star, Greg Hardy, is likely to make his UFC debugging competition on January 19 in Brooklyn, New York, when UFC will appear first on ESPN +.

Hardy is inevitably moving to UFC has always been the subject of a debate, because he had previously convicted two accusations of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend (despite those payments later when he was not his victim appeared in court). Having said that, it is hard to imagine that the UFC treats the earlier debate in the former NFL worse.

When registering Hardy for this January 19 card, promotion has been placed on the same card with Rachael Ostovich, who suffered domestic violence a few weeks ago. Ostovich, who has fought against Paige VanZant on the card, is suddenly surprised to be off the card as a result of the injuries he held in his assault, but he has decided to stay on the A card to send a message of unity and strength to its co-survivors.

"Although this was a very difficult time for me and my family, I felt that this battle in January was important," said Rachael Ostovich. "I felt it was extremely important for me to follow with it and not just for me, but first for a girl and other people who could go through similar situations. I want to stand a stand against domestic violence and showing others that she is really coming out and talking about it and not being insisted.

"I feel that I have to do this. This is something that can not be removed from me. I want to use this UFC platform worldwide to show people who … do not letting anyone and anything come between you and your dreams and career. "

Now, it seems, Rachael Ostovich will share the card with a man who was found guilty of the victim's very recent crime.

Surprisingly, the MMA community has commented on this decision as unpleasant as unacceptable by UFC. Here's how people respond on Twitter.
