Former UFC fighter Greg Hardy successfully beat professional boxer, Hasim Rahman Jr. earlier today at the MF X DAZN boxing event. Hardy weighed in nearly 100 pounds overweight than his opponent and the fight still went to distance.

Fighting an opponent of a different weight class is one thing, but to fight someone who is nearly 100 pounds overweight, is a brave effort in itself. Hasim Rahman Jr, the former rival of Jake Paul truly won the fans over with his efforts in trying to beat the former NFL athlete, and UFC fighter, Greg Hardy at the Misfits X DAZN boxing event earlier today.

Fans were tuned in to see how the fight plays between two fighters of two weight classes apart in the boxing ring. Heading into this fight against Rahman, Hardy was 1-0 in his boxing career. The fighter weighing 320 lbs beat his opponent weighing 226 lbs via a unanimous decision to extend his record to 2-0. Rahman was at a massive disadvantage when it came to weight and height.

The fight saw some amazing moments where Hardy managed to secure a knockout against the professional boxer. Hasim Rahman Jr is no stranger to missing weight though. The fighter was recently scheduled to fight YouTube sensation Jake Paul but the matchup didn’t go through as Rahman couldn’t make the contractual weight.
