Video: Greg Hardy sparked by Josh Watson in second round of Knucklemania 3 fight


UFC vet Greg Hardy’s bare-knuckle debut went horribly wrong when he ran into a left hook from Josh Watson at Knucklemania 3.

Hardy was out cold just 19 seconds into the second round of his heavyweight BKFC debut, the victim for a second time of Watson’s powerful left hand.

Check out the end below.

In the first round,

Watson severely injured the UFC vet and NFL veteran with the same punch. Only the ropes saved Hardy from hitting the canvas late in the first as Watson uncorked a left hook, and referee Dan Miragliotta rightfully gave him a 10-count. Watson was unable to finish his job when the bell rang, but the pattern was established.

Hardy Jr. had earned a 2-0 pro boxing record in a pair of appearances following the end of his time in the UFC, which came after a three-fight skid.

After two losses during his previous two outings bare-knuckle,

Watson won his second consecutive BKFC victory.
