Greg Hardy's UFC Opponent Says He's Gonna Win For Rachael Ostovich

The first of those cards is set to air on January 19 in NY with Rachael Ostovich set to take on Paige VanZant in a women's flyweight bout at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. But he's not making his debut on just any old card - Hardy will fight on January 19, the first live UFC event ever broadcast on ESPN+.

Hardy's seemingly inevitable move to the UFC has always been the subject of controversy, as he was previously found guilty on two charges of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend (though those charges were later dropped when his victim did not appear in court).

Hardy has six fights under his belt - three amateur, three pro - and all ended in first-round knockout victories for Hardy. After that fight, Hardy was signed to a development deal with the UFC.

India vs Australia: India is 'smelling blood' concedes Australian coach Justin Langer
The pace battery for India includes M Shami, I Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav have not been picked. Paine said: " Mitch Marsh probably hasn't been as consistent as he would like and we would like". "You sense these moments".

Hardy is set to fight Allen Crowder at UFC on ESPN on January 19 - the same night Ostovich will return to the Octagon after her domestic violence incident. We spoke with Crowder - who's fought against beasts like Curtis Blaydes and Justin Willis - and he spelled it out for us. The 6'4 30-year old was scheduled on a regional show on December 21 in Florida, but White says the UFC elected to pull him from that card in anticipation of his promotional debut, according to ESPN's Brett Okamoto.

Ostovich still plans to take the fight against Paige VanZant despite the assault. Ostovich, who is set to fight Paige VanZant on the card, was briefly rumored to be off the card as the result of the injuries she sustained in her attack, but has chose to stay on the card to send a message of solidarity and strength to her fellow survivors.

It's extraordinarily bad optics, not to mention hugely insensitive, to put Hardy - a man who has a serious domestic violence accusation (and expunged conviction) in his past - on the same card with Ostovich.
