Greg Hardy Wants To Fight Jon Jones, And Become Best Heavyweight Ever
Greg Hardy is one of MMA’s most controversial figures. However, he does not let the controversy stop him from planning to become the greatest ever.
Hardy is a former NFL player, who turned to MMA recently. He would compete on Dana White’s Contender Series, before being brought into the UFC. Following this, he has a 4-1 professional record, with his lone loss coming via disqualification.
Now, Hardy is set to face his biggest test to date, this weekend at UFC San Antonio. He will be facing the durable Juan Adams, in the featured bout on ESPN. Despite this, Hardy has his eyes set on a bigger goal; being the greatest heavyweight of all time.
Ahead of his bout, Hardy spoke to TMZ about his plans for future greatness, and who he needs to beat to get there.
“It’s impossible not to dream of Greg Hardy vs. Jon Jones for the heavyweight title after he’s done finishing off the light heavyweight division. He’s a great dude, a great competitor, but I’m here to clean out the whole division and anyone who wants to join it. I’m here to be the greatest combat sports heavyweight of all time, and if that includes taking out Jon Jones to do that, then that’s what I’ve got to do.”
This is a big goal for Hardy, but he is likely a long way away. He is yet to be ranked, or face a ranked fighter. Additionally, Jones plans to be at light heavyweight for the foreseeable future.
However, a bout between these two could be in the future. Greg Hardy at least hopes it is.
