Twitter reacts to UFC booking Greg Hardy's debut on same card as Rachael Ostovich

Greg Hardy will make his UFC debut on the same card as Rachael Ostovich. Can you believe that?

According to ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto, who cited UFC President Dana White as his source, the promotion will book a heavyweight bout between former NFL standout Hardy and Allen Crowder at UFC on ESPN+ 1 on Jan. 19 from Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York. This is the same night that Ostovich, whose husband faces a second-degree assault charge for allegedly beating her last month, is still set to face Paige VanZant.

In case you missed it, this is the same Hardy who was convicted for domestic violence in 2014 only to later have the charges dropped after the victim failed to appear in court.

The curious timing of booking Hardy’s debut on the same night that Ostovich is fighting did not go unnoticed on Twitter.
