Watch Greg Hardy get brutally KO’d in BKFC debut.
We didn’t quite get to see anything this violent in terms of Greg Hardy when he was in the UFC, but the fans were pleased to see Hardy finally get his just dessert when he was brutally KO’d in his Bare Knuckle debut on Friday night in New Mexico.
Hardy barely survived round one, getting knocked down in the first and suffering a nasty eye injury. But it didn’t take long to finish him in the second with a brutal KO just 19 seconds in.
Hardy was the favorite leading into his bout with Josh Watson but suffered the loss, much to the joy of many fans.

Hardy isn’t exactly a fan favorite, and that isn’t just due to his lack of fight skills.
In May 2014, Hardy was arrested for assault and threats, after he was “alleged to have assaulted an ex-girlfriend by grabbing her, throwing her into furniture, strangling her, and threatening to kill her.” He was found guilty and sentenced to 18 months in prison. He appealed and requested a trial that would have required the victim to appear in court, which she failed to do.
