Heavyweight prospect Juan Adams, who is scheduled to fight Arjan Bhullar at UFC Ottawa this Saturday, is no fan of former football player Greg Hardy. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Speaking to MMA Junkie recently, Adams gave a scathing assessment of Hardy’s debut UFC win, a TKO over the shockingly passive Dmitrii Smoliakov at UFC Fort Lauderdale.
“Pathetic,” Adams said. “It was just ridiculous. It looked like the guy was scared to do anything. I’m not going to say much, but I think it’s ridiculous how they’re trying to push such a poor product on people. The people have spoken like, ‘We don’t want to see that crap. It’s not a good fight, he’s not a good fighter.’ He’s had cans his entire career. The most legit opponent he’s fought was Allen Crowder. Like, c’mon. He’s no world beater.
“Every point in his career, he’s taken the easiest fight available. Every point in my career I’ve taken the best guy available, who the best guy was that’s going to come at me. It shows when we fight. I fight guys on my level on paper that are supposed to be better than me, and I still come out on top. He fights a guy that’s another up-and-comer and gets DQ’d because he’s scared he’s going to lose right away.”
Juan Adams went on to say that he outright hates Greg Hardy — which is why he dedicates so much of his time to lambasting him on social media.
“My social media is all about hating on Greg Hardy – because I hate him,” Adams said.
Do you think we’ll see Juan Adams and Greg Hardy collide in the Octagon in the near future?
