    Former NFL standout and current UFC heavyweight Greg Hardy thinks his MMA run has already made him the “best crossover combat sports athlete” of his generation, but he expects to solidify that with success in boxing.

    That includes an eventual switch to boxing, where Hardy is targeting fights with the big three of the heavyweight division in Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, and Deontay Wilder.

    “After I get done shutting this down, handling my MMA business, I will transition into the boxing world,” Hardy told reporters, including MMA Junkie, during Thursday’s virtual media day. “I’m trying to holler at Dana (White). Hopefully we can get some fights in the Zuffa Boxing world, Top Rank, Al Haymon – somebody come holler at this dude because I definitely want to go over there and knock out ‘The Gypsy King,’ make light work of that English cat Joshua, or whatever it is, ‘Cry-baby Bomber.’ We’ll knock all those guys out, man. Of course you know I’m going to work for it. It’s an aspiration I think will come true real fast, and I can’t wait for it.”

    Talking nonsense.
    Hardy hasn't even made the Heavyweight rankings in the UFC. He's fought 1 fighter in the Heavyweight top 10 and lost.
    Wilder alone would smash him to pieces, never mind Joshua or Fury.

    At least dreams are free. He found out tonight that reality is another thing altogether.

    Whenever someone says "best crossover combat sports athlete", they rarely achieve anything at all.
