UFC Fight Night Brooklyn Results: Greg Hardy Gets DQ’d for an Illegal Knee Because of Course He Does

If anyone came into UFC on ESPN+1 lugging around some baggage, it was Greg Hardy. After all, the ex-NFLer is no longer a pro football player anymore because of some nasty domestic violence issues. But he’s won quick and violently on Dana White’s “Tuesday Night Contender Series”, so he we are.

Standing opposite him in the Octagon was Allen Crowder, a total nobody who had the crowd’s love simply because Hardy is a villain.

And in the opening seconds, it was the villain throwing heat and the hero taking lumps. But in a scant few seconds Hardy was spent, and it was Crowder’s turn to take control – which he did by getting Hardy down and working him over a bit. Crowder threw his advantage away with a guillotine attempt, but he’s no salty veteran, and mistakes happen.

Round 2 saw the two going at it on the feet, and when it was clear that Hardy had nothing in the tank, Crowder began verbally taunting the heck out of him.

And then Hardy did the most Hardy thing ever: Crowder wound up on one knee in a scramble, and while standing above him, Hardy cracked him with a knee to the dome.

Yup, a totally illegal technique, and when Crowder couldn’t continue, referee Dan Miragliotta disqualified Hardy without blinking.

Man Attempts To Rob Female UFC Fighter, Gets Whuppin’ Instead

If you’re going to rob someone, best make sure they’re not a UFC fighter. That’s a lesson some ‘poor’ thug in Rio de Janeiro learned when he accidentally took on strawweight Polyana Viana as she sat outside her apartment building waiting for an Uber.

Viana shared the experience with MMA Junkie’s Fernanda Prates, which went down on Saturday night.

”When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me,” Viana recounted. “He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn’t going to leave. So I already moved to put my cell phone in my waist. And then he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to react, because I’m armed.’ Then he put his hand over [a gun], but I realized it was too soft.”

”He was really close to me. So I thought, ‘If it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it.’ So I stood up. I threw two punches and a kick. He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke. Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said, ‘Now we’ll wait for the police.’”

It turns out the man’s gun was just a cardboard cutout. Once his so-called weapon was revealed, the would be robber basically gave up.

“I was fine,” Viana continued. “I was fine because he didn’t even react after. Since he took the punches very quickly, I think he was scared. So he didn’t react anymore. He told me to let him go, like ‘I just asked for the time.’ I said, ‘Asked for the time my ass,’ because he saw I was very angry. I said I wouldn’t let go and that I was going to call the police. He said, ‘Call the police, then’ because he was scared I was going to beat him up more.”

This isn’t the UFC fighter’s first brush with crime fighting. When she lived in Belem, Viana said she took on two men on a motorcycle who once again were trying to get at her cell phone.

Viana is 2-0 against muggers and 10-2 in her MMA career. Currently sitting at 1-1 in the UFC, she kicked her promotional run off with an impressive first round submission win over Maia Stevenson before dropping a decision to JJ Aldrich at UFC 227. Viana is currently without a fight … so watch out, Rio criminals.

Fighter Gets DQ’d Over Crazy Flying Finishing Move

This move may have cost Austin Batra an amateur title, but the highlight will live on forever.

Well, that’s one way to lose a fight.

Amateur welterweight Austin Batra had the 170 pound Battlefield Fight League belt in the bag following a KO blow to his opponent Perry Hayer in a fight that went down in Coquitlam, BC. Unfortunately for Batra, he couldn’t help but attempt an unusual finishing maneuver moments after the ref clearly stepped in to stop the fight.

Take a look at the finish of the fight, which came a mere 30 seconds into the first round and was ruled a DQ win for the downed Hayer:

MMA Fighting dubbed this a flying double axe handle strike, and we’ll take their word for it because it does indeed look like Batra is about to put an axe through his opponent while flying through the air.

The move, clearly begun after the referee called an end to the fight, may have cost Batra the win and the BFL title, but now he can lay claim to a Crazy Mofo title. Batra moves to 4-2 as an amateur. 170 pound champ Perry Hayer is now 6-7.

Jon Jones Snitches, Gets Reduced Sentence From USADA

Everyone’s favorite drug-abusing rascal Jon Jones has finally come to an agreement with USADA. In lieu of the four-year suspension he was facing for failing another drug test, he will instead get 15 months, making him eligible to compete later next month.

Why did Jones get such a weak slap on the wrist, you may ask?

Oh, well, because he snitched.

Zoinks!

There’s a lot of shadiness involved with USADA, and how some fighters seem to get better treatment than others. But in this instance, there is no one shadier than Jones.

As per MMAFighting:

Jones, his legal team and USADA representatives met with arbitrator Richard H. McLaren last Saturday, per the release. Going into arbitration, USADA already determined there should be a reduction of two years and six months to a potential Jones suspension “based on Jones’ delivery of substantial assistance,” the release stated. Jones was facing a four-year ban, because this was his second UFC anti-doping policy violation.

McLaren then reduced the suspension to 15 months based on Jones’ degree of fault, which took into account that he had passed multiple out-of-competition drug tests leading up to UFC 214, before failing the in-competition test — the one he knew was coming. Jones was tested eight times in 10 months around UFC 214 and failed just the one test.

Jones argued that he did not knowingly take a banned substance and had no idea how a steroid metabolite got in his system. Jones submitted more than a dozen dietary supplements to USADA and none came back contaminated. McLaren is a highly regarded name in anti-doping and was on the independent panel commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to investigate allegations of state-sponsored doping in Russia.

I guess Jones’ sudden return shouldn’t surprise anyone. With only just so much Conor McGregor to go around, the UFC needs whatever pay-per-view draws it can muster to meet revenue projections.
