LAS VEGAS, NV - AUGUST 07: (R-L) Devonte Smith elbows Joseph Lowry in their lightweight fight during Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series at the TUF Gym on August 7, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"I think I sent a message that I'm prepared for business", Hardy said.

The referee stepped in to stop the onslaught and hand Hardy a second pro win after his 57-second victory against Austen Lane in June.

This fight was the most talked about fight on the card in the opening episode of the second season. Hardy rushed straightforward and overwhelmed Gordon as he unloaded all he had. I wasn't aware, I was in the zone.

Wasting no time, Nzechukwu quickly went to work on the feet as he was able to hurt Bryant with head kicks before putting him away with punches in just under two minutes.

The Internet retail and infrastructure heavyweight provided the greatest lift to the S&P 500 , followed by Alphabet and Microsoft. Volume on USA exchanges was 5.95 billion shares, compared to the 6.31 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

Nzechukwu was a second time Contender Series veteran but his performance a year ago wasn't enough to get the call up to the UFC.

The exciting season of one of the sport's most refreshing programs was capped off with a heavyweight bout between former National Football League defensive player, and controversial figure, Greg Hardy taking on Tebaris Gordon.

Greg Hardy remains a force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division as he continues to develop as a fighter. In each of Hardy's three previous amateur fights he also won by way of first round knock out. "He needs to get some more work in".

Hardy has no problem waiting for his number to be called.

White has maintained that he wants to see Hardy in more fights before putting him on the big stage.
