Greg Hardy has earned another swift victory as an amateur mixed martial artist. Now, the former football player is on a winning streak as a knockout artist.
Greg Hardy gained fame as a talented defensive player for the Dallas Cowboys. However, the player was later removed from the league after being involved in a domestic violence incident. Hardy was sentenced to 18 months of probation, but charges against Hardy were later dropped as the alleged victim did not testify in court. The controversial former football player has since decide to pursue a career in mixed martial arts.
Hardy made his MMA debut back in Nov. at Rise of a Warrior 21. The football player turned fighter earned a swift 32 second knockout over Joe Hawkins in the match up. Hardy’s second MMA performance was much of the same.
Fighting at Rite of Passage 2 on Friday night, Dec. 1, Hardy went toe-to-toe with Kenneth Woods in Bossier City, Louisiana. In just 96 seconds, the fighter earned a tough stoppage victory over woods. Now Hardy is 2-0 as an amateur mixed martial artist.
Perhaps most impressive, Hardy’s two victories inside the cage were only a month apart with the fighter’s debut taking place in Fort Pierce, Fla. That being said the fighter has only been inside the cage for just over two minutes, as Hardy’s opponents have yet to survive the first round against the fighter.
A video of the fighter’s recent stoppage victory can be seen above.
Since deciding to transition into the world of MMA, Greg Hardy has been training at American Top Team.
