Controversial football export Greg Hardy (3-1) will battle Russian heavyweight Dmitrii Smoliakov (9-2) at the upcoming UFC on ESPN+ 8 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, scheduled for TONIGHT (Sat., April 27, 2019) inside BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
Aside from “The Prince of War’s” messy past, which includes charges of domestic violence, last January’s Octagon debut was an unmitigated disaster, ending by way of disqualification in favor of rough-and-tumble heavyweight, Allen Crowder.
He can’t afford another hiccup when he battles the venerable Smoliakov. “The Lifeguard” may be 0-2 inside the Octagon, but he’s also finished all nine of his heavyweight wins, four by knockout and five by submission.
Check out their fight video preview above.
