REPORT: Ex-NFL DE Greg Hardy Is Set To Make His UFC Debut

Greg Hardy’s NFL career is over, but the former Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys defensive end has taken up a new profession — the MMA.

Hardy has been fighting in underground MMA fights and how he has a shot to prove himself to the UFC.

According to Nolan King of MMA Today:


Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series has made it’s “biggest” pick-up yet.  According to sources close to the situation, MMA Today has confirmed former NFL star Greg Hardy (0-0) is slated to compete on the Contender Series’s June 12th episode.

The 6’5″, 280-pound big man has made the cut to 265 thrice before, competing at the amateur level.  Hardy has knocked out all three of his opponents thus far in a stunning span of just 142 seconds.  Most recently, Hardy competed for UFC-feeder-league LFA, finishing 3-1 amateur Ryan Chester in just 14 seconds.

Hardy will fight United States Army veteran Brandon Sayles in the first episode after posting an amateur record of 3-0, knocking out all three of his opponents thus far in a remarkable span of just 142 seconds.
