Editorial: Greg Hardy should be part of the UFC roster purge

I know it’s not in his nature, but it’s the right time for Dana White to admit he made a mistake in signing (and overpaying) Greg Hardy to get on-the-job training in what we have repeatedly been told is the highest level MMA promotion in the world.

An NFL player for six seasons. Hardy was a pariah by the time his football career came to an abrupt end in 2015.
