Heavyweight fighter Greg Hardy’s next fight will come against Jaris Danho at UFC On ESPN+ 20 on October 26th in Singapore.
Ex-NFL player turned MMA fighter, the 31-year-old Hardy claimed a swift 45 second TKO victory over Jaun Adams in his last fight back in July.
In total that takes Hardy’s fledging career to 5-1, with all five of his victories having come in the first round via strikes.
However, Hardy’s opponents have been carefully selected so far and that’s set to continue in Singapore as he’s been lined up to face Danho, who so far has picked up a loss and a draw since joining the UFC back in 2016 against Daniel Omielanczuk and Christian Colombo respectively.
In fact, Danho hasn’t fought again since then, so he’s going to be returning from a three-year layoff, which says a lot about the UFC’s approach to booking fights for Hardy.
Hardy vs. Danho joins at UFC On ESPN+ 20 card that’s set to be headlined by a welterweight fight between two of the division’s top grapplers, Olympic wrestler Ben Askren and BJJ specialist Demian Maia, while Michael Johnson also goes up against Stevie Ray on the main card.
