Jay Glazer isn’t a fan of Greg Hardy’s move to pursue a career as an MMA fighter. The Fox Sports NFL insider and owner of Unbreakable Performance Center, which coaches MMA fighters and trains women in self defense takes exception to the idea of Hardy being granted the privilege of to compete in MMA fighting based on Hardy’s past.
Hardy was found guilty of assault against his ex-girlfriend by a judge in 2014. The charges were dropped after Hardy appealed for a jury trial and the accuser did not appear in court.
“I would be incredibly disappointed in any of my fellow MMA coaches and any promoters if they took Greg Hardy in and taught him a shred of our incredible sport. Many of us train women in self defense specifically to help protect vs domestic violence. Me and all my coaches at @Unbreakable do and take great pride in that. Competing in any sport is a privilege, Greg Hardy should not be granted the privilege. There are many beautiful arts taught in our sport, none of which should be afforded to him” Glazer said in a statement posted to Twitter.
Hardy missed the entire 2014 season and was suspended for four games of 2015. Last month, Hardy was arrested on charges of cocaine possession in the Dallas area.
