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.
He then continued his winning streak by knocking out Juan Adams in the first round at UFC on ESPN 4. Greg Hardy is now confident of being the next UFC champion.
“This is my time basically to just work on everything that is Greg Hardy,” he said in an interview to MMAJunkie. “Grappling, punching, there are no specifics. There’s not a guy to worry about taking me down. This is where I become a martial artist and take the next step… Just encompassing everything that is a fighter and build my game to be an actual world champion instead of some fluke showcase movie-deal fight guy.”
“These guys push me to become something the world has never seen,” he said. “We’re going to be the most complete, most dangerous, most vicious fighter of all time. We are literally stone-by-stone, brick-by-brick building everything I need.” (H/T – BJPenn.com)
