Destroys Maurice Greene in Vegas
HeavyweightUFC
October 31, 2020
Hardy defeated Maurice Greene via TKO (punches) at 1:12 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hardy nearly made history on Friday, almost becoming the first heavyweight fighter in UFC history to miss weight. He eventually checked in at 264.5 pounds after being allotted the extra hour. If Hardy did indeed have a tough weight cut, you wouldn't know it watching Saturday's fight. Armed with an overwhelming power and speed advantage, Hardy blasted Greene with repeated, unanswered power shots. This was a rout from the very start and a fight in which Hardy expended stunningly little energy to win. Hardy's power and athleticism are obvious. His main issue at this point is the fact he has just ten pro fights under his belt at age 32 because he spent so much time in the NFL. Expect Hardy to fight as often as possible in the coming months to try and make up for those missed reps.
Next bout set
HeavyweightUFC
August 14, 2020
Hardy will square off against Maurice Greene at the UFC's Oct. 31 event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Hardy picked up a win against Yorgan De Castro fairly easily in his last bout, out-striking his opponent by more than 30 to avoid a third consecutive loss (one by no-contest). Next up is Greene, who slipped by his Gian Villante in June to break a two-match losing streak of his own. Hardy comes in two inches shorter than his opponent but owns an identical reach.
Potentially facing Rountree in August
HeavyweightUFC
July 6, 2020
Hardy is in discussions to face off against Khalil Rountree on August 15 in Las Vegas, Raphael Marinho of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
Hardy last fought in early May when he defeated Yorgan de Castro via unanimous decision. Rountree, on the other hand, has not fought since last September when he lost to Ion Cutelaba via TKO. Rountree has previously competed at middleweight and light heavyweight, so he'll be moving up a weight class for this proposed matchup. Given that fact, it's not surprising to see Hardy enter with four-inch advantage is both height and reach, but the speed advantage should lie in the hands of Rountree.
Scores UFC 249 victory
HeavyweightUFC
May 9, 2020
Hardy defeated Yorgan de Castro via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC 249 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Hardy didn't look as good as those scores would lead you to believe. In fact, he was clearly losing this fight until an apparent foot injured forced de Castro to alter and abandon his effective game plan. Hardy's inability to check a leg kick left him fighting on one leg for the vast majority of the fight. Luckily for the "Prince of War", de Castro banged up his foot and suspiciously stood around and did next to nothing the rest of the way. Hardy was never close to finishing the fight, but his output over the course of the final ten minutes won him the bout. Hardy is intriguing because he's obviously an elite athlete with legitimate power and explosiveness, but he has all of nine pro fights under his belt and it's going to be difficult for Hardy to make up for all those missed reps. Expect plenty of ups and downs for Hardy the rest of the way.
Next bout moved to UFC 249
HeavyweightUFC
April 26, 2020
Hardy will take on Yorgan de Castro in a heavyweight matchup at UFC 249 on May 9 in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
This heavyweight bout was originally scheduled for UFC Columbus in March, but was later moved to what was originally supposed to be UFC 249 on April 18. The UFC was ultimately forced to cancel both events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but will proceed with this fight to kick off the pay-per-view portion of the card on the event's new date. Like the last time around, Hardy enters as approximately a (-175) betting favorite. Both fighters have high finishing rates, making this one to target from a fantasy perspective.
