Greg Hardy’s debut attracted a lot of negative jab from the MMA community, but the former NFL Pro Bowler made amends and continued to learn the rules of mixed martial arts. He made the most of his co-main event opportunity and displayed much improved fight skills as he walked passed Dmitrii in the first round scoring his first UFC win. It just took him 2:15 secs to put away the Russian who was in no mood to engage and only looked for a take down. Hardy landed a series of uppercuts and Dimitrii quickly went into survival mode. Hardy then threw hammer fists until the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
