Former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy will take on another ex-NFLer when he squares off against Austin Lane on June 12 in his professional MMA debut. Hardy — who was suspended for 10 games in 2014 for assaulting his girlfriend — has not played in the league since the 2015 season and won his amateur fighting debut with a first-round knockout last November. Hardy’s professional MMA debut against Lane will be on the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series. Lane has won his first four fights as a professional MMA fighter. He last played in the NFL in 2014, with the Chicago Bears.
