Former NFL player Greg Hardy to make UFC debut Jan. 19December 5, 2018
The UFC is ready to call up Greg Hardy.
Late Tuesday night, ESPN.com cited UFC President Dana White in reporting that Hardy's promotional debut was close to being finalized for UFC on ESPN+ 1 against Allen Crowder.
Hardy on Wednesday morning seemingly confirmed the booking in an Instagram post.
"???????? Anybody else super hypeeeeeeeeeee God I love my job and life," Hardy said in the post.
UFC on ESPN+ 1 takes place Jan. 19 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and serves as the UFC's debut event on its new deal with ESPN.
Hardy (3-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who was signed to a UFC developmental deal after his first appearance on Dana White's Contender Series in the summer, had been slated for a Dec. 21 regional bout at Island Fights 51. That plan, however, has apparently changed with his imminent UFC debut happening instead.
