    No way a football player at the age of 30 with no combat experience could just walk in and be a contender in boxing but Hardy is considered a contender in UFC, if he becomes a champion one day it would look even worse. I still love UFC don’t get me wrong but it just shows the levels of eliteness in boxing vs mma

    hes not a contender. There are only like 4-5 legit contenders and he got 3-0d by one of them.........

    Ben Sosoli mightve beat him without inhaler gate too

    Yeah HW is thin. Its always thin, except for about 12 months or so after Strikeforce merged into UFC.
    A win over Maurice Green doesn't make you a contender.

    Some young kid with barely any fights just completely shut down the supposed GOAT Wizard boxer that is still in his prime with fifty times the experience.

    A contender for the crown of gatekeeper, although he may not be good enough to hold that status; other gatekeepers could probably beat him.

    Not a lot of big guys to go around. Of the few that are athletic, they choose things where the athletes get 50% instead of 10%. What you have left are a few good fighters and a whole bunch of big dumb wannabes like Hardy.

    Hardy a contender? Nope. HW sucks, but it isn't THAT bad.

    Hardy did have some combat experience though, didnt he used to spar with his girlfriends all the time?
    But damn what a bum fight that was. That fight was about as ugly as hardy's face. What a terrible promotion for the HW division indeed.

    Beating Maurice Greene who almost lost to an obese Gian Villante makes you a contender?

    lol. He’s not even ranked. Let alone an actual contender.

    He can be a top contender for which HW gasses the quickest, though.

    has little to do with eliteness tbh Its more a matter of restricted fighting vs fighting almost without any. Its obvious that an inexperienced fighter would benefit from being able to fight the way they want as opoosed to using only his fists.

    how is he a contender? he isn't even in the top 15 lol.

    #15 Tybura would beat his ass.

    HW is a shit division but it has nothing to do with shitty ass Greg Hardy. He's just a cow they parade around against favorable matchups to pander from people who know him from football. If he had a normal prospect path he would have lost multiple times already. Basically every performance where he didn't just nuke the other guy has been really shitty and/or been a DQ/NC for cheating.
