Greg Hardy of the Dallas Cowboys looks on against the Miami Dolphins

Former NFL player Greg Hardy will reportedly make his professional MMA debut against Brandon Sayles on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender series this summer. Hardy is a sizable -350 favorite with Sayles coming back at +250.

Hardy is a perfect 3-0 in his amateur MMA career, with all three wins coming via knockout and none of the bouts lasting longer than 1:36. Hardy – who trains at American Top Team, one of the best gyms in the world – has parlayed his explosiveness and athleticism into quick victories over his often-overwhelmed opponents.

However, it won’t be easy for Hardy to overwhelm Sayles, a fighter with six pro fights and just one loss. The 37-year-old isn’t exactly a top prospect but has proven himself to be a difficult opponent with his lone defeat coming at the hands of UFC and Bellator veteran Chase Gormley.

This will be a big step up in competition for Hardy. It’s far from unwinnable – but we have never seen Hardy fight an opponent with any real experience or the physical stature to be able to go toe to toe with him.
