Greg Hardy reigns supreme in the octagon
No matter what your reactions, or feelings are towards the former Panther, and Cowboys defensive end, Greg Hardy is now undefeated inside the octagon. Even if you’re one of the thousands of people who tuned into his fights, or the highlights, hoping Hardy get his backside handed to him. There is no denying he’s been a controversial figure lately in the MMA world and a bit of a draw, for someone who hasn’t actually had an official UFC fight.
After his success with the amateurs, Hardy was 3-0, and carried the momentum into his first professional fight. He defeated Austin Lane in 57 seconds.
Recently, before this fight Tebaris Gordon had no trouble trying to get into Hardy’s head, stating that he was the better fighter, faster, and stronger. Well, Hardy had him wishing he did not say any of those things publicly, because Hardy unleashed as soon as the bell rung, and was able to score a vicious TKO victory over Gordon, in just 17 seconds.
No matter how many more victories Hardy can rack up moving forward before he can step into an official UFC octagon, he will continue to be frowned upon for his 2014 incident in which he was convicted of assaulting a woman. For now, Hardy looks to be unstoppable and he will only draw more attention to his fights at the rate he’s going.
Hardy after the fight:
“I haven’t seen the replays yet, but honestly I think I can be more in control,” Hardy said. “I was kind of in danger a little bit, with my hands low. I feel I can work on that, jitters. I would call it an experience. I’m all about plugging holes my man.”
Hardy, of Millington, Tennessee, trains out of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida. He has a 3-0 amateur record. All of his wins have come via knockout.
