Tai Tuisava Vs Greg Hardy Full fight Video Highlights from UFC 264 Main Event Card on Saturday Night in Las Vegas.
Tui Tuisava picked up a first Round TKO victory over Greg Hardy at UFC 264
Heavyweight contenders Tai Tuisava and Greg Hardy meet on the main card of UFC 264 which is headlined by the Trilogy fight between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor on July 7th.
Australian Heavyweight Tai Tuisava had a strong start to his UFC career and was seen by many as one of the next big names in 5he stable but things fell apart as he record three straight brutal losses, opening holes in his game and casting doubts over expectations from him. He has since bounced back from those losses with two Knockout victories and will work into the Octagon on Saturday night hoping to remain in the win column.
Greg Hardy was a controversial NFL star, welcomed to the UFC after his career fell apart. He has since competed eight times in the Octagon and has a (4-3, 1NC) record. He has grown and developed into a solid fighter and has been able to give some big names trouble.
With an 11-3 record, Tai Tuisava started his Career with a bang and was able to knockout 10 of his opponents with notable wins over Rashad Coulter (UFC Fight Night 121) Cyril Asker (UFC 222) Stefan Struve (UFC 254) , Andrei Arlovski (UFC 225) but his bad days came in losses to contenders Junior dos Santos (UFC Fight Night 142), Blagoy Ivanov (UFC 238), Sergei Spivac (UFC 243).
A protege of Mark Hunt and also share the speed and power capable of swiftly knocking out opponents in the Octagon. Tuisava is quick on his feet and can quickly sneak in some punches coupled with his devastating leg kicks which in the long run destabilizes any opponent and hinders mobility, giving sluggers like him an edge.
Hardy has had a pretty mixed start to his UFC career as his transition has not been an easy one. He is a knockout machine, with a build that supports kickboxing from a distance. However, Hardy has been able to gather a couple of wins in his fight against Maurice Greene at UFC Vegas 12, Yorgan de Castro at UFC 249, Juan Adams at UFC on ESPN 4, Dmitry Smolyakov at UFC Fight Night 150.
Hardy’s losses can against Marcin Tybura at UFC Vegas 17, Alexander Volkov at UFC Fight Night 163 and Allen Crowder UFC on ESPN+ 1. A win against his Australian opponent this Saturday will boost his resume but that seem very unlikely, if he doesn’t score a takedown in this fight. This is due to the fact that Tuisava is a much more experienced kickboxer but terrible in his ground game.
Whatever the case, Tai Tuisava is a match up made by the heavens and lies in it the capabilities of a sudden stoppage..Don’t Miss This For Any Reason.
