    He should only be fighting top 10 competition. It's a waste having him on the roster if it's not high profile fights. He held his own after also breaking his hand apparently agaisnt Volkov.

    Maurice Green is a GOAT

    Maurice Green is just outside top 15. After that, assuming he wins, it's a ranked opponent for sure.

    Greene will probably beat him. Boser, Aspinall and Gane deserve the bigger fights more than Hardy.

    He put in a decent showing against 6th ranked fighter Volkov.

    Hardy did ok against Volkov .....I think giving him a step back fight is smart

    Aspinall deserves Ngannou. He is GOAT

    I think Hardy is happy to cruise at the moment, staying active and continuing to gain experience and learn is a good thing, he's still pretty raw.. Volkov test was clever really, a great example of a fighter testing the waters too soon, but learning a shit load from it, overall a very positive experience for Hardy in defeat, kudos to Volk for taking it.

    Maybe Hardy cares more about a WIN bonus than rankings

    Remember, he was out of work for a while during his transition from NFL to MMA

    He already has popularity

    The man only has 9 pro fights. NINE.

    He is right where he needs to be.

    He has been fighting pro for just over TWO years with ZERO combat sports background. Who the hell is a top 10 fighter in the ufc just 2 years into their career?

    I get why people dont like him but the way some of you let your personal feelings cloud your perspective by obscuring all context is fairly unsettling.

    It's like Trump derangement syndrome on a micro level.

    He lost to a 5-10 ranked Volkov, so a 10-15 ranked fighter makes sense. If he wins he moves up the ladder again.

    Guy was supposed to be HW champ with two weeks of training. Four years later here we are.
