NFL player and accused domestic abuser Greg Hardy made a splash in the Octagon recently when he scored a knockout on “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series”. He earned a UFC contract, but also earned a good bit of uproar because he once wound up in cuffs for beating his woman, and why would the UFC even hire this guy?
Well, karma stepped in and meted out some justice.
Despite being the proud owner of a UFC contract, Hardy still plays football, albeit arena football. And young homie injured his knee.
Former NFL player turned MMA fighter Greg Hardy suffered a knee injury in an arena football game Saturday night.
Hardy, who also currently stars for the Richmond Roughriders of the American Arena League, was hurt in the first quarter of the Roughriders’ 57-43 win over the Carolina Energy. Hardy is expected to get the knee examined by doctors in the coming days, sources told ESPN. The severity of the injury is unclear at this time.
The timing is unfortunate for Hardy, who won his professional mixed martial arts debut four days prior to the football game and was subsequently signed by the UFC. According to sources, Hardy isn’t sure if the knee injury will delay his next fight, which hasn’t been signed yet.
