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 that hasn’t stopped him from thinking big and during UFC media weigh-ins, he made it clear about his aspirations in the UFC and said that he wants to become the champion.
Going into @UFCSanAntonio, Greg Hardy says his goal is to win the @UFC heavyweight title.

“I am going for the heavyweight gold,” Hardy told MMA Junkie. “I’m here to take everything that everybody loves and adores and put it around my waist.”
“I’m a more calm, more happy, more deadly version of myself,” Hardy said. “I found peace in violence. I found my spot. I found my niche, and I feel good about it. Nobody can take it away.”
