Greg Hardy Wiki Update Wiki
A former NFL Pro Bowl Defensive End, Greg Hardy switched careers from the Gridiron to the MMA cage following his release from the Dallas Cowboys due to new information coming out about his 2014 domestic violence case with his ex-girlfriend as well as his confrontational behavior between him and members of the Cowboys coaching staff. While he still plays football for a minor league team in the Spring League, Greg Hardy was still able to carve out a name for himself in the amateur MMA ranks at Heavyweight where he won all 3 of his amateur MMA fights by KO/TKO in the first round. As a result, Hardy then accepted an offer from Dana White to turn pro and fight on the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series, where he will make his pro debut with a chance to win a UFC contract. He fought against fellow former NFL Defensive End in Austen Lane and KOed Lane in 57 seconds of the first round with a right hook left hook combination. This highlight reel knockout in his pro debut earned Hardy a developmental contract with the UFC, in which he will continue to hone his skills and get more fights under his belt before the UFC gives him the call up to the big show.
On Saturday January 19, 2019 Greg Hardy made his official debut in the UFC. He fought Allen Crowder and got the first loss of his MMA career. Hardy was disqualified at 2:28 of round 2 for an illegal knee to a downed opponent and an illegal punch which he threw after Dan Miragliotta stopped the fight.
