Watch: Former UFC star Greg Hardy wins boxing debut

Greg Hardy won through technical knockout (TKO) in his boxing debut on Saturday, marking his return to combat sports over the weekend.

Greg Hardy was fired from the UFC earlier this year after suffering his third consecutive defeat at UFC 272. Hardy lost to Tai Tuivasa and Marcin Tybura through KO/TKO prior to losing to Sergey Spivak via TKO. “Bam Bam” Tuivasa decided to give Hardy some free job advise after being one of the individuals who helped knock Hardy metaphorically out of the UFC.

In the end, Hardy made the decision to commit to many fights with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in July. Hardy has yet to make his BKFC debut, however this past weekend, on Saturday, October 8, he faced Mike Cook in his professional boxing debut.

Mike Cook entered the fight with a 0-1 record in bare-knuckle fighting and no prior professional boxing experience. Hardy would receive his first knockout victory in the sport, while Cook would continue to be winless in the ring. Watch the finish in the video down below.
