There was a lot of hype swirling around female boxing champion Heather Hardy before she stepped into the cage tonight.
Hardy was super confident that she wouldn’t be one of the boxers that didn’t transition well to mixed martial arts.
“Every fighter is different.” Hardy said during an interview with boxinginsider.com, “All boxers are not the same. Maybe a fighter that wasn’t as good as me didn’t adapt well. But I’ve been doing a lot of sparring with elite level fighters and I’m feeling pretty good.”
With a championship level boxing pedigree going into tonight’s Bellator main card bout, she was expected to walk through her opponent.
Instead, she got dominated by a kickboxing stylist. And it was nasty.
