    Did you see in that second round how timid he looked, like scared of being hugged by Pretty Boy?

    As soon as Pretty Boy noticed this he started to play with Greg, walking him down with a huge smile and just swinging, not caring about if Greg would counter.

    Pretty boy had basically won the mental game right there, and to save face Greg took the first chance when he got it to just throw anything back. Lmao, talk about no fight IQ what so ever. He's far from a fighter if we talk about mindset. Still good power though.

    He looked ok actually and was taking his corners advice in the 2nd round on toning it down and focusing on landing. He only looked upset after the dq

    It was a reality check for him.

    His next fight will show whether or not he can deal with the rough sides of the sport.

    You can't just expect to put away any opponent in a few minutes.

    It definitely was a big fuck up. It was not a borderline illegal move or happened during a scramble. It was a clear foul. Whether or not he got to that point as the result of a mental defeat is something we can only guess about unless he tells us.

    Yeah, he must improve a lot tactics wise though.

    Think about it, if you're having trouble to beat Crowder - than how are you going to look with the rest of HW division?

    Crowder was 9-3 I think? Definitely not a Mike Jackson type scrub they fed Punk.

    Hardy was on his way to win a decision, but made a stupid mistake.

    Dude is a lot of things but mentally weak is not one of them. The world is against him. He is leaving the past behind and taking the toughest path forward. A true warrior.

    I think it was due to bad stamina more than being mentally weak. It looked like he got really tired and started having doubts. I wouldn't say he's mentally tough though. He does seem to have that bully mentality.

    Dude he even said post fight it’s the most he’s been hit, the most he’s been taken down. Training and cardio is completely different in the NFL vs MMA. He’s obviously not scared, it was just that of a man who was in legit uncharted waters.

    He’s got a long long way to go and will probably never get there but at least he’s trying. It is what it is

    More like a dude that's never fought for more than 30 seconds against bums who showed up for a payday.

    And it was a UFC co-main because he once played in the NFL. Love how they talked around the fact that he was a pretty mid-level player which means he got traded around a lot.

    He was totally gassed.. and he has not fought in that condition before, probably completely different. Maybe he will learn.
    Hes from american football, not a cardio, lactic acid sport exactly.
