A heavyweight bout featuring former NFL standout Greg Hardy taking on Marcin Tybura took place on tonight’s UFC Vegas 17 main card.
Hardy (23-7-1 MMA) had most recently competed on Halloween evening where he scored second round TKO victory over Maurice Greene. The win marked the former Dallas Cowboys‘ second in a row, as he had previously earned a unanimous decision victory over Yorgan de Castro.
Meanwhile, Marcin Tybura (20-6 MMA) had entered tonight’s contest with Greg Hardy on a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a unanimous decision win over Ben Rothwell in October. Prior to that victory, the Polish standout had picked up wins over Sergey Spivak and Maxim Grishin.
Tonight’s Hardy vs. Tybura fight proved to be a tale of two rounds. Greg Hardy looked phenomenal in round one and had his Polish opponent badly hurt from punches. However, in round two Marcin Tybura got the fight to the ground and ended the contest shortly thereafter. Tybura battered Hardy with strikes forcing the referee to step in and call a stop to the contest.

That’s a HUGE win for Tybura! Hardy didn’t seem to know what to do in that position. He didn’t look hurt but more confused/lost. #UFCVegas17
