Greg Hardy’s prefessional career has taken another steep dive.
Greg Hardy’s first appearance in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship didn’t go as he planned. The former Pro Bowl defensive end was knocked out by Josh Watson early in the second round back in February. This was the first appearance for Hardy in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. He signed a multi-fight contract with the promotion in June.
Hardy’s shift to bare-knuckle fighting came after he tried his hand at mixed martial arts. He had two fights for Dana White’s Contender Series and competed in Xtreme Fight Night before receiving a UFC contract. He had 10 fights in UFC from 2019 to ’22. He went 4-5 with one no contest before his contract expired after a TKO loss to Sergey Spivak at UFC 272.
After his latest loss, the former NFL player took to social media and revealed that he was actually working at Walmart now.
Social media was not only shocked, but they started roasting a guy who made upwards of $18 million in his career.
Greg Hardy is known for his controversial past. He was initially drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2010 and played for them until 2014. During his time with the team, Hardy was a dominant defensive player, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2013. However, his career was marred by off-field incidents, including a domestic violence case in 2014.
In 2015, Hardy signed with the Dallas Cowboys. Despite more issues, the team would sign him to a one-year contract in 2016, but he was eventually released after a disappointing season. That would be the end of his career.
Since leaving the NFL, Hardy has pursued a career in mixed martial arts, but he flamed out after getting a chance in the UFC.
The BKFC is likely his last shot, but things are clearly starting out badly for him.
The 9-to-5 life is likely what he’ll be doing for the remainder of his life.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
