Bare Knuckle FC has announced that it has signed the ex-UFC heavyweight and former NFL Pro Bowler. Terms of the deal were not disclosed and a date for Hardy’s debut is currently unknown.
Hardy went 4-5 with one no contest during his UFC tenure before parting ways with the promotion earlier this year. He owns a 7-5 career mark in MMA with six wins via KO or TKO.
The signing comes on the heels of the news that Hardy is expected to make his pro boxing debut for Black Sheep Boxing on Oct. 8.
“I’m back and ready to knock everyone out in the baddest promotion there is,” Hardy said in a release. “Everyone knows I can knock people out and that’s what I’m planning on doing. I can’t wait to take the gloves off and rumble for BKFC.”
