Jerry Jones apparrently called Dana White to tell him that Greg Hardy was the meanest ‘SOB’ to ever play for the Dallas Cowboys.
The UFC President detailed the phone call in a recent interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter.
“Jerry Jones called me,” Dana White said. “I was at my house up in Maine on vacation, and he said ‘Did you sign Greg Hardy to fight in the UFC?’. I said ‘I did’ and he said ‘Oh my god. I’m going to tell you this.. He is the meanest Son of a B*tch that ever played here!’. That’s what he said to me. He goes ‘You want to talk about a real athlete with power and just that nasty mean instinct that you can’t teach anybody – they either have it or they don’t’. Jerry Jones is a believer.”
Greg Hardy, a defensive end in football, played six years in the NFL. Five of those years were spent as a member of the Carolina Panthers before his final season with ‘America’s Team‘, the Dallas Cowboys. He recorded 40 career sacks during his National Football League career.
The 30-year-old, Hardy, has since transitioned into mixed martial arts where he has looked every bit as mean as Jerry Jones suggested to Dana White.
Hardy has gone a perfect 3-0 in his MMA career, with all three wins coming via first-round stoppage.
