Greg Hardy cultivated some controversy during his NFL career. The former football player was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
Though the case was eventually dropped, the former NFL star has since become a polarizing character. Transitioning into the world of mixed martial arts, Hardy is now set to compete on the next season of the Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, as seen within Lewis’ Instagram post below, Derrick Lewis revealed that he would like to take on the former football player.
“He’s a wife beater. I’d like to get in there with him. I like knocking these wife beaters out. Yeah, I’ll fight Greg Hardy. It’d be like vice versa of him beating all the women; I’ll be beating him like he’s a woman.
“I grew up watching my mom and step dad fight watching about every single damn day — fist fighting — for the stupid stuff. I don’t tolerate stuff like that at all.”
