Greg Hardy’s UFC Opponent Fighting For Rachael Ostovich ‘I’m Very Against Men Beating Women’

EXCLUSIVE

 

Greg Hardy‘s 1st UFC opponent says he has extra motivation to destroy the ex-NFL star — telling TMZ Sports he wants to get the victory to honor Rachael Ostovich. 

Hardy is set to fight Allen Crowder at UFC on ESPN on Jan. 19 — the same night Ostovich will return to the Octagon after her domestic violence incident. 

As we previously reported, Ostovich was hospitalized last month following an altercation with her MMA fighter husband Arnold Berdon, who was later arrested and charged with assault. 

Some critics are upset with the UFC — claiming the organization is tone deaf putting Hardy and Ostovich on the same card because of Hardy’s past domestic violence issues. 

FYI, Hardy was found guilty of domestic violence by a judge in 2014 — but the conviction was thrown out in 2015 when he appealed to have the case go in front of a jury … and his accuser stopped cooperating with prosecutors.

Dana White has previously told us he’s spoken with Hardy about the incident — but he’s convinced Greg is a changed man. 

So, how does Greg’s new opponent feel? We spoke with Crowder — who’s fought against beasts like Curtis Blaydes and Justin Willis — and he spelled it out for us. 

“I definitely want to win this fight for [Ostovich]. I’m very against men beating women. And, I’m definitely not a woman, so he’s gonna have a lot harder time with me then he did the last person.”

“I’m gonna get that win for her.”

CM Punk ‘I’m Not Fighting Logan Paul’

Breaking News

Sorry, Logan Paul, you ain’t gettin’ a crack at CM Punk in the UFC Octagon — Punk just slammed the door on the possibility … and then dissed the YouTube star for good measure. 

Logan’s brother Jake Paul had been lobbying Dana White to make the fight happen — claiming Logan is a real athlete who could compete with guys on the UFC roster, including Punk. 

In fact, Joe Rogan said he was impressed with Logan’s talent during his boxing match with KSI earlier this year … and made it clear he thinks Paul would whoop Punk in the UFC. 

Now, Punk sat down with MMAFighting’s Marc Raimondi and told him straight up — ain’t happening. 

“I’m not fighting Logan Paul.”

Then came the shade …

“I think this is one of the avenues where people will be like, ‘I don’t even know who Logan Paul is.’ Logan Paul is apparently a popular guy, but it’s not in any kind of avenue that I drive my car on. The only thing I know about him is he’s the guy who filmed the dead body in the Japanese suicide forest, which is don’t get me started on that, because I’ll say a bunch of stuff and then I’m sure somebody will make a YouTube video about it.”

There’s more … 

“When you fight somebody, when you enter into a fight camp, you have to spend a lot of time thinking about that person … And, I’m not into sharing that much of my time and my headspace and my life with somebody that did something that I feel is so reprehensibly disrespectful to the people of Japan, who I love.”

“They’ll always have a special place in my heart. So, no. I’m not fighting him. I have no interest to.”

Punk says he’s still technically on the UFC roster and is tested by USADA in case he’s called on for another fight … but says he’d also be at peace if Dana White cut him.
