Greg Hardy competed in his second professional mixed martial arts bout at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series 16, facing off against Tebaris Gordon in the main event of the night. In his first appearance on the UFC Fight Pass show, Hardy scored an impressive first-round knockout against fellow former NFL player Austen Lane. This time, the former Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys defensive end needed even less time to get the job done with the same result.
Once again, Hardy scored a first-round knockout win.
The difference? This time Hardy came out guns-blazing and needed just 17 seconds to improve his pro record to 2-0. Gordon never stood a chance, immediately covering up after Hardy came out aggressive and pushing the pace with a wild flurry.
Gordon eventually collapsed to the mat, and Hardy finished the job with some vicious ground-and-pound.
You can watch the knockout below.
And as you would expect, Hardy was hyped after his big win.
Hardy signed a developmental contract with the UFC following his first win on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. It will be interesting to see what the promotion has in store for the former NFL star the next time he enters the cage.
