In what was the only Heavyweight fight of the UFC Vegas 12, Greg hardy liquidated Maurice Greene with a great knockout. The aforementioned raised his record with the organization to 7-2, after finishing by TKO to his rival in the second round. After a very good presentation in his previous fight, he again gave something to talk about and prevails in the category to try to get the game for the title.
Beyond having had a very close chance to finish the process in the first round, Greene it endured and it was then when the closing came. Of course, it was not much use to have survived in the first part, because then he was exposed to something worse. That’s why the former football player was the one who got one of the most shocking knockouts of the night. With hammer blows, he crushed his opponent and quickly went viral.
Greg hardy, who had a double lap in the Dana White’s Contender Series, got the third victory by TKO in the cage. The Tennessee-born did the same against Yorgan de Castro at UFC 249, although he later released a fact that also went viral on social networks. This was when the post-coronavirus pandemic action was just beginning, so there was no audience in the stands and everything could be heard from the octagon.
The detail that helped him in the previous fight
Thus, the impressive UFC fighter admitted that the silence from the stands came to him in a good way at that time, because it was precisely what allowed him to hear the comments and criticisms of the television commentators. Thanks to this, he took note of every detail that those mentioned said, in order to adjust his strategies. Despite having been losing, that issue helped him.
It was that which allowed Hardy to prevail against Yorgan De Castro, in a combat that began losing, but later it returned by the “advice” that it received. The television commentaries of Daniel Cormier, one of the best fighters in the history of the UFC and now a commentator, served to change history. The victor won by unanimous decision and, during the post-fight interview, reported the following: “Thank goodness there was no audience in the stands and I could hear Cormier.”
