Knockout! Watch Greg Hardy easily smash Maurice Greene at UFC Vegas 12

Former NFL star Greg Hardy captured his third Octagon finisher earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 31, 2020) at UFC Vegas 12 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, when he stopped heavyweight big man Maurice Greene via second-round TKO (punches).

Hardy was clearly the more powerful heavyweight as he came out and nearly clobbered Greene’s head off. The action would eventually hit the canvas where Hardy did some good work from top control and was able to defend Greene’s leg lock attempts.

In Round 2, Hardy landed a short jab that sent Greene falling to the canvas like a sack of potatoes. Hardy pounced on top and launched power punches in bunches before the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

With this performance, Hardy locks down his second-straight UFC win after defeating Yorgan De Castro via decision this past May. Hardy continues to be a work in progress, but does look better every time he steps inside of the cage. This was Hardy’s first career finish outside of Round 1.
