Former Dallas Cowboys player Greg Hardy is entering the world of mixed martial arts.
Hardy played the 2015-16 season with the Dallas Cowboys, but wasn’t able to find a new team after a slew of on- and off-the-field issues. Now he’s carving out a new path in professional sports.
“I’m very focused and excited to start my MMA career. I’m going to do this the right way, I can assure you of that,” Hardy said in a statement to MMAFighting.com.
Hardy currently weighs 285 pounds and will likely fight as a heavyweight in 2017, according to MMAFighting.com. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The NFL Season With The Hottest Cheerleaders In The Game)
He didn’t have much success on the football field at the end of his career, but perhaps he can find some success in the fighting octagon.
