Greg Hardy Stays Unbeaten in MMA Career
Former NFL defenseman and current UFC developmental talent Greg Hardy remains undefeated in his young MMA career, stopping Rasheem Jones in the main event of Xtreme Fight Night 352.
Hardy showed what appeared to be an improved skill set, including a spinning kick he showed off during his introduction. In the fight, Hardy managed to stuff a takedown and finish Jones with several hammer fists to the head, scoring the referee stoppage TKO in 53 seconds.

Hardy played with the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys until he was run out of the league on issues involving drugs and domestic violence.
After an unbeaten run on the amateur MMA circuit, Hardy made his professional debut as part of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. Hardy scored a knockout of fellow former NFL player Austen Lane to earn his developmental deal, and he appeared on the series again in the season finale during the summer, stopping Tebaris Gordon in 17 seconds.
All of Hardy’s MMA wins on the amateur and pro circuits have come under 100 seconds — with only one amateur bout going over a minute.
