A heavyweight fight between Greg Hardy and Tai Tuivasa has been booked for UFC 264 on July 10th, though as yet it’s not been officially announced.
Hardy comes into the fight off a loss to Marcin Tybura back in December, which saw him TKO’d late in the second round.
That was the first time Hardy has been TKO’d in his 11-fight career, though heh has picked up two other losses and a no-contest during his UFC run so far.
Prior to the Tybura loss, the 32-year-old had compiled back-to-back victories in 2020, with a decision victory over Yorgan de Castro being followed up by a TKO finish against Maurice Greene.
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old Tuivasa had been on the verge of being released from the UFC after a three-fight losing streak, but has since turned things around with a KO victory over Stefan Struve and then a 49 second TKO finish against late replacement Harry Hunsucker just a few weeks ago.
Hardy vs. Tuivasa joins a UFC 264 card that will be headlined by one of the biggest fights of the year as Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor lock horns for the third time in their careers, while former welterewight title contenders Gilbert Burns and Stephen Thompson are also signed up for the main card.
