Crowder Forgives Hardy, Welcome’s Rematch

Over two days after Allen Crowder took an illegal knee from Greg Hardy in the co-main event of the UFC’s debut on ESPN+, the fighter had two words to describe it… “S**t happens.”

Crowder was Hardy’s first opponent on the main stage of UFC and was handling himself well against the ex defensive lineman turned knockout artist, but would be shellshocked with a knee late in the second round by Hardy while Crowder was still grounded.

The fight was immediately stopped as officials and doctors tended to Crowder and Hardy looking confused as the fight was officially ruled a disqualification.

When asked by TMZ about the incident, Crowder claimed that things happen and that, “it’s a fight. It’s the heat of the moment.”

“There’s a lot of people that have made the same mistake. I have no hard feelings against him at all. He was tired, and sh*t happens. I have no hard feelings about it at all.”

At the post fight press conference a visibly upset Hardy claimed that he mistimed the knee, and he thought that Crowder was in or near a legal position.

When asked if he’d fight the former NFL star again, Crowder told TMZ he would if the “money was right.”
