Drake Riggs - January 2, 2018

We’ve seen it on a few occasions where NFL players have made the transition from the top American football league to the world of MMA, for better and for worse results. Most recently, former defensive end for the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys, Greg Hardy has made the leap over and quickly found success. Hardy is undefeated at 2-0 with both of his wins coming by way of knockout(both under a minute and thirty-six seconds). Hardy is only twenty-nine years old but played six seasons in the NFL(although one of those seasons he only played one game in due to getting suspended for his domestic violence case). Now, MMAFighting reports that he is set to for his biggest fight on his biggest stage so far when he takes on the 2-1, Ryan Chester at Legacy Fighting Alliance(LFA) 33 on February 16 in his third amateur Heavyweight bout.

Interesting news came out on Monday when MMA Fighting revealed that former NFL star Greg Hardy was looking to transition to a career in mixed martial arts. Hardy was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the 2010 NFL draft and played for the team as a star defensive end. However, in 2014, Hardy was found guilty of assaulting an ex-girlfriend. According to a report from The Washington Post, “Hardy was found guilty by a North Carolina judge and, following procedure in that state, asked for a jury trial. The case was dismissed when the alleged victim did not appear.”

Earlier this year, we saw former WWE star CM Punk, a man with no real martial arts experience, make a foray into the perilous world of mixed martial arts. It did not go well for him.
