    Greg Hardy’s official Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut proved to be less-than-stellar after the former NFL defensive end was disqualified for landing an illegal knee on Allen Crowder last Saturday night (Jan. 19, 2019) at UFC on ESPN+ 1 in Brooklyn, New York.

    Afterward, the critics came out of the woodwork, slamming Hardy for the blow that ultimately forced the referee to put an end to the fight. Unfortunately for “The Prince of War,” it’s another black cloud over his head, as most weren’t giving him the benefit of the doubt due to his troubled past. Crowder, though, doesn’t believe the knee was intentional and blames the rookie mistake on lack of experience.

    Despite getting the win – the first of his UFC career – Crowder says it doesn’t feel as such. He did, however, accomplish one of his goals by proving that Hardy simply isn’t ready for the big stage.

    While Crowder believes Hardy has the potential to become a great fighter with another five or six bouts under his belt, UFC President Dana White disagrees, saying that Greg is already a good fighter who will in fact get another shot inside the Octagon. (Great :rolleyes:)

    They’re both jabroni’s. The fact they were in their lofty position as co-main on a well-publicised card was embarrassing.

    The old UFC slogan, ‘As Real as it Gets’ takes a backseat when these two are involved, in favour of the more apt, ‘As Sloppy as it Gets’.

    I have a feeling that Crowder is going to get Mike Jackson treatment and we will never see him again in an octagon

    Neither of these goofballs belong in the UFC. That shit was high anus. Killed my buzz on Saturday night actually. I still think Hardy takes the rematch against Crowder's sister though.

    He's just angling for a rematch. The fight is really more exposure for Crowder.

    And at the same time, he proved he himself doesn't belong in the UFC!

    Right, Hardy looked bad because he is no fighter and was brought in as a spectacle to sell tickets, and the bum they brought in to be his fodder looked bad because- well... for obvious reasons.

    Dana wants to be able to say, "Yeah we have NFL stars, we have the best athletes in the world in the UFC," but at what cost? That fight as the lead up to the main event really looked pathetic.

    "That feels really good, my Instagram has skyrocketed, 1000 followers in the last day. "

    Surely not 1000

    Crowder won that fight in a fashion that reenacted a domestic violence scene with him as the victim against Hardy.

    Might have not been the win he wanted but he won for Rachel.
