Former Panthers and Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has won yet another UFC fight by first-round knockout.
Hardy needed just 17 seconds to knock out opponent Tebaris Gordon at the UFC’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. He has now won two UFC fights by first-round knockout Lamarcus Joyner Jersey , and previously won three amateur mixed martial arts fights, all by first-round knockout. He has not faced any particularly strong competition.
The UFC has faced criticism for giving Hardy a chance at all, given the domestic violence accusation that has led NFL teams to steer clear of him. But it appears that the UFC is ready to move forward with Hardy and put him in bigger fights going forward.
Hardy said after his fight that he’d love another chance in the NFL, however unlikely that is.
Hardy was drafted by the Panthers in 2010 and was a Pro Bowler in 2013. He played in just one game in 2014 before being placed on the commissioner’s exempt list over a domestic violence accusation, and he missed the rest of that season. He signed a contract with the Cowboys in 2015 and started 12 games for them, but other NFL teams have shown no interest since.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long has won the Good Guy Award from the Professional Football Writers of America for his consistent cooperation with the media.
The Good Guy Award is given to an NFL player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs. The award has been presented annually by the PFWA since 2005.
Long was nominated for his availability to local and national writers on a consistent basis and his offering of thoughtful answers on a variety of topics Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , both on and off the field.
"Whether it was the Eagles defense, the team's underdog status, the unrest in Charlottesville, his philanthropic endeavors Sam Mills Jersey , or his involvement in and support of social justice issues, Long's insight and perspective were appreciated during his first year in Philadelphia," said Zach Berman, who covers the Eagles for the Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News/philly.
With the Eagles' victory over New England in the Super Bowl in February Andrew Billings Jersey , Long became one of just four players in NFL history to appear in back-to-back Super Bowls on different teams and win both.
