UFC heavyweight, Greg Hardy has revealed during his media availability on Wednesday afternoon that he currently weighs 295lbs ahead of his main card opener against Sergey Spivak at UFC 272 this Saturday.
Hardy, who has competed on nine separate occasions under the UFC’s banner, will make his third outing on the main card of a pay-per-view event billed by the organization when he tackles Spivak at the T-Mobile Arena.
Boasting a 7-4(1) professional record from 12 total fights, Hardy, a former professional NFL player, most recently featured on the main card of UFC 264 back in July, suffering a first round knockout loss to recent big winner, Tai Tuivasa – dropping his second straight loss following another stoppage loss to Marcin Tybura in December 2020.
Speaking during his media availability today ahead of UFC 272, Hardy told assembled media that he walks around at a weight of 310lbs, and currently weighs 295lbs, before lifting up his t-shirt and claiming he was the “most dangerous man on the planet”.
“I am 295 right now,” Greg Hardy said. “Y’all thought I was lighter than that? So for the world to know, I walk around at 310. Your boy is not a small guy. We packed up, sexy – I’m the biggest, fastest, most dangerous guy on this planet.”
In four Octagon victories, Hardy, a native of Tennesse, has secured three knockout wins, stopping Maurice Greene, Juan Adams, and Dmitry Smolyakov in between a unanimous decision win over Yorgan de Castro. In two appearances on Dana White’s Contender Series, Hardy, a former NFL defensive end stopped both Austin Lane, and Tebaris Gordon with strikes.
For Moldova native, Spivak, the 27-year-old makes his return for the first time since a first round knockout defeat to UFC London headliner, Tom Aspinall in September, which snapped a run of wins over Alexey Oleynik, Jared Vanderaa, and Carlos Felipe.
