Greg Hardy isn’t leaving combat sports anytime soon.
The former NFL star and UFC heavyweight has signed a deal with Bare Knuckle FC and will now compete in bare-knuckle boxing.
No details regarding the deal were announced by BKFC along with a debut date or potential opponent.
However, BKFC President Dave Feldman is excited to add to his promotion’s heavyweight division.
“I’m excited to start working with Greg,” BKFC president Dave Feldman said (via MMA Junkie). He’s a tremendous athlete with quickness and incredible strength, as he’s shown in the UFC and NFL. He wants to test himself in bareknuckle and has been training for a fight for the last couple of months.
“Heavyweight is one of our deepest divisions and his skill set fits right in. We’ll announce the date, location and his opponent shortly.”
Greg Hardy Ready To Rumble With BKFC
Hardy was released from the UFC earlier this year after his contract ran out.
He suffered a DQ loss to Allen Crowder in his promotional debut before coming out on top within four of his next six outings.
He would then get finished in his last three contests before ultimately departing the promotion. He currently holds a 7-5 record with one no contest.
Hardy has since signed for his professional boxing debut and with his most recent move to BKFC, it appears “The Prince of War” isn’t leaving combat sports anytime soon.
“I’m back and ready to knock everyone out in the baddest promotion there is,” Hardy said. “Everyone knows I can knock people out, and that’s what I’m planning on doing. I can’t wait to take the gloves off and rumble for BKFC.”
