Former Dallas Cowboy defensive end has had decent success in the UFC so far. After getting disqualified in his UFC debut against Allen Crowder at UFC Fight Night 143 earlier this year, Hardy made a comeback in his second fight against Dmitry Smoliakov last April and won the fight via knockout in round 1.
Now he is all set to fight Juan Adams at UFC on ESPN 4 this Sunday. But Hardy already planned big things for himself. In a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, the former NFL player said that he wants to make a transition to boxing.
“Looking into it and (I) got some of the greatest coaches in the world at American Top Team. Just getting the opportunity to move back and forth between different arts,” Hardy said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “I found a nice spot in boxing. Starting to develop a love for it, alike for it, and a yearning to actually get in there and try it out. I think, with the blessing of the Big Man upstairs, that it’s something I would love to look into and starting pretty soon to wet my feet.”
“I think I could be one of – if not the – the greatest fight sports heavyweight of all-time. Not even just MMA, just the greatest combat sports heavyweight,” he explained. “I’m versatile, you know?” (h/t – BJPenn.com)
