Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series is back on UFC Fight Pass for it’s second season run.
In Tuesday night’s season premier, controversial NFL veteran Greg Hardy made his professional Mixed Martial Arts debut with a first round knockout at the one-minute mark.
UFC President Dana White has now committed to the budding prospect, but warns that if his checkered past comes back to bite him, Hardy will be shown no mercy under the UFC umbrella.
Check it out:
“You talk to the people in his camp, they love the guy, men and women. They think he’s a great guy and a guy who (was) probably doing drugs, drinking and made a big mistake. He’s the type of athlete, and he’s the type of guy that, if he does anything wrong, there will be no mercy for him.”
“This guy has paid his dues, and like I said, he hit rock bottom. You can point the finger at a guy all you want, but you can’t look down at a guy for trying to turn his life around and trying to be a better person. And I believe that’s what he’s doing.”
