Greg Hardy Scores 17-Second Knockout Win Over Tebaris Gordon
Former NFL player Greg Hardy is a force to be reckoned at the heavyweight division as he continues to evolve into a scary slugger.
Hardy fought for the second time in the main event of Dana White’s Contender Series 16 on Tuesday, controversial former NFL All-Pro Annihilate Tebaris Gordon to earn a 17-second knockout win from the UFC Performance Center in Las Vegas.
Hardy moved forward aggressively and exchanged heavy right hands with Gordon briefly before Hardy landed a knee to the body. Gordon pressed hard against the cage with Hardy took advantage and hurled the final blow to Gordon’s face that floored him on the canvas.

“I did what I said I’d do. I’m here for business,” Hardy said. “I just had it on my mind. Come out, put on pressure, apply my skill set. I wasn’t aware, I was in the zone. I was going to keep throwing punches until it was waved off.”
“He’s got two fights, some of these kids have 12 fights, some are 7-0,” White said. “He’s got nothing but time. He has to get some more work in.”
Hardy holds 3-0 in amateur fights before entering into professional UFC fights, and in his first outing, he defeated Austen Lane in 57 seconds via KO.
