Disgraced former Cowboys star Greg Hardy, whose NFL career was cut short following a domestic violence issue, recorded his second TKO victory with a 96-second stoppage of Kenneth Woods at Rite of Passage 2 in Bossier City, Louisiana on Friday night.

On Friday, Hardy stepped inside the American Kombat Alliance cage at Rite of Passage 2 in Bossier City, Louisiana. The Horseshoe Casino Riverdome played host to Hardy’s fight against Kenneth Woods, who was making his debut.

Hardy started slow and made Woods circle on the outside. The obvious speed and athleticism advantage for Hardy were keeping Woods from engaging. Finally, Hardy came forward.

This is Hardy’s second career MMA fight since leaving the NFL. Last month, Hardy came back from being knocked down to win his first fight with a 32 second knock at Rise of a Warrior 21 in Fort Pierce, FL.

Hardy has yet to fight a quality opponent in the cage so it’s hard to say how good he actually is at MMA but it’s hard not to notice his exceptional athleticism against some of these opponents. Eventually Hardiy is going to have to fight someone with more MMA experience if he wants to move up the ranks and make a little more money but we’ll see if that ever happens.
