Greg Hardy to Face Ex-NFL Defensive End Austen Lane in Octagon

Greg Hardy to Face Ex-NFL Defensive End Austen Lane in Octagon

Lane, a fifth-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2010, was a defensive end like Hardy, although Lane didn't see the same kind of success in the NFL.

As MMAjunkie previously reported, the 2018 version of the Tuesday-night fight series, in which UFC hopefuls can earn contracts with MMA's biggest promotion, kicks off on June 12. With a checkered past in the league, Hardy then turned his attention to MMA and had his first and only matchup as an amateur last November against Ryan Chester.

Additionally, in the season opener, Dana White's Contender Series 9, Hardy (0-0) will turn pro and fight Austen Lane (4-0). All three of his wins have come via knockout.

Is David Moyes waving goodbye to West Ham fans for final time?
Lanzini combined with Pablo Zabaleta down the right and the full-back played the ball in field for Cheikhou Kouyate . Leighton Baines' cross was met by Niasse, but he could not direct his header on goal.

Hardy made the Pro Bowl and was second-team All-Pro as a member of the Panthers in 2013. His hiatus from football coincided with multiple arrests, once for assaulting his girlfriend, and another for a possession of drugs misdemeanour.
