Controversial former National Football League player turned UFC hopeful Greg Hardy needed just 17 seconds to demolish his second opponent since turning pro.
Gordon brought a flawless 3-0 record into the bout, finishing all three fights early. In his most recent appearance, "Boom" finished formerly unbeaten Marvin Skipper in the second round at Warfare MMA 17 in December 2017. The knockout was reminiscent of what Travis Browne did to Josh Barnett and Gabriel Gonzaga with those same elbow strikes in a pair of heavyweight fights.

In the weeks leading up to the deal, however, two prominent proxy advisers recommended that shareholders vote against it. The rest was going to be in the hands of Rite Aid investors, with the combined company worth an estimated $24 billion.
Gordon looks incredibly relaxed heading into this headlining fight.
In the eight weeks of action that we got this Summer, we saw 24 contracts handed out with 33 of the 40 fights ending via finish. They touch gloves and they come out swinging. Hardy and Gordon exchanged heavy right hands briefly before Hardy was able to land a knee to the body. This time, the former Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys defensive end needed even less time to get the job done with the same result. He jumped on Gordon from the start and overwhelmed him with a barrage of punches. Hardy still looks angry while Dana White looks incredibly pleased.
After Hardy earned a developmental contract by defeating Austin lane in June, UFC President Dana White spoke of Hardy's troubled past, telling reporters, "The reality is if this guy stays clean for the next 10 years, wins a world title and is one of the greatest mixed martial arts of all time, he's always going to hear about his past", White said.
After starting the season off, Greg Hardy would also cap it.
