Former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy remains unbeaten as a professional MMA fighter, defeating Tebaris Gordon in his second bout on the UFC-affiliated program "Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series."

According to SBNation's MMA Fighting, Hardy handled Gordon quite easily, defeating him by knockout in just 13 seconds. This was significantly quicker than his win in his professional debut — which took place earlier this summer on the season two premiere of the show. Back on June 12, he defeated fellow former NFL player Austen Lane in 57 seconds, earning himself a UFC developmental contract.

Altogether, between his amateur and professional MMA stints, Hardy has won all of his bouts — with every win coming in less than 100 seconds.

Hardy vs. Gordon

As reported by USA Today's MMAJunkie, Hardy had an intense look on his face from the moment he walked through the double doors of The Ultimate Fighter gym in Las Vegas and into the cage. The two, particularly Hardy, began to throw hard punches from the moment the referee started the fight.

Hardy rushed forward and began to throw a flurry of punches, while Gordon — with his back essentially against the Octagon wall — tried to cover up and get out of the firing line. But Hardy was working combinations and, as the MMA expression goes, landing punches in bunches.

Eventually, a hard knee followed by more follow up strikes, including one that landed right on the button of the chin, caused Gordon to slump forward on the canvas and forced referee Herb Dean to stop the fight, giving Hardy the win.

"I just had it on my mind.

Come out, put on pressure, apply my skill set," Hardy said in a post-fight interview. "I was in the zone."

Hardy and his UFC future

Hardy sees MMA as a second chance in life — he previously played in the NFL, playing for the Carolina Panthers between 2010 and 2014 before being accused of assault and communicating threats.

Hardy was found guilty, but after appealing the charges and requesting a jury trial, the victim did not appear in court and stopped cooperating with authorities.

Hardy got off of the charges, but the damage was done — and after playing for the Dallas Cowboys in 2015, Hardy was released and out of the professional football league.

Hardy has turned heads in his young MMA career for his explosive knockout power and gaining all of his wins in less than two minutes. But UFC President Dana White, following the August 7 show, suggested that Hardy will remain on his developmental deal due to his lack of professional experience when compared to other fighters who appear on the UFC "Fight Pass" exclusive show.

Three fighters who competed on that night's card — Devonte Smith, Kennedy Nzechukwu, and Bobby Moffett — earned UFC deals.

The August 7 broadcast marked the end of season two for "Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series." The show will premiere season three early next summer on ESPN+, following the UFC's move to ESPN, which goes into effect at the start of 2019.
