Greg Hardy made his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw against Allen Crowder. Hardy lost the fight in the second round via Disqualification as he landed an illegal knee on Crowder, rendering him unable to continue.


He bounced back from the loss and went on to win his next 2-fights against Dmitry Smoyakov and Juan Adams via first-round TKO. Hardy won his next fight via unanimous decision against Ben Sosoli, however, the decision got overturned because Hardy used an inhaler in between rounds.


He lost his next fight against Alexander Volkov at UFC Fight Night: Magomedsharipov vs. Kattar. Volkov outclassed Hardy and used his lack of technical ability to outgun him.


Hardy rallied back and defeated Yorgan de Castro and Maurice Greene before losing his momentum and going on a 2-fight losing streak, getting TKO'ed by Marcin Tybura and Tai Tuivasa.
