Greg Hardy, who shifted his aspirations from football to MMA after his virtual exile from the NFL, looks to have his first fight booked for November.
Hardy shared the promo graphic for the Rise of a Warrior 21 event in Fort Pierce, Fla., when asked on Twitter when his next fight would be.
Hardy, 29, was embroiled in a domestic violence case in 2014 and hasn’t been on an NFL roster since the 2015 season. He’s been training with American Top Team in Florida for about a year.
In response to Levy’s testimony, the Lions said in a statement Friday, We are aware of (Levy’s) comments and we strongly disagree with his claim that anyone from our organization tried to silence him.
Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Harry Carson and Chris Nowinski, a former professional wrestler who co-founded the Concussion Legacy Foundation also testified during the forum on traumatic brain injuries that was hosted by Democratic members of the energy, commerce and judiciary committees, the Free Press notes.
Levy played for the Lions from 2009-16 before being released in March. He filed an injury grievance over his release, as he was recovering from knee surgery and was not paid a $1.75 million injury guarantee in his contract, according to the Free Press.
