Hardy is now up to 5-0 in his MMA career (his first three fights were as an amateur). In his pro MMA debut, Hardy defeated his opponent in 32 seconds. This time he around Hardy was even faster. He has won all five of his fights in the first round, none taking longer than 1:36.
The former NFL player is signed to a developmental contract with the UFC. If he keeps mowing through opponents like this, the organization may bring him to the big leagues for his UFC debut.
A former Pro Bowler, Hardy transitioned to MMA after NFL teams stopped showing interest in him following the 2015 season. The awful allegations he faced from his ex-girlfriend were a big reason for his NFL career ending.
