Derrick Lewis: “F— Greg Hardy”, “He has no chance against Volkov”

It seems that Derrick Lewis has issues with controversial former NFl star Greg Hardy - And isn't giving him much of a chance in his next fight

If you ask Derrick Lewis, Greg Hardy doesn’t stand much of a chance in his next bout.

Heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Blagoy Ivanov collide at UFC 244 on Saturday. While the Bulgarian Ivanov isn’t necessarily a fan favourite, his opponent certainly is. With his fun quotes and colourful, honest personality, he has become increasingly popular. During media day, MMAnytt got the opportunity to speak with “The Black Beast”.


Aside from his thoughts on Ivanov, Lewis also opened up about controversial heavyweight Greg Hardy. The former NFL star will step in on short notice next week to face Alexander Volkov in the co-main event at UFC Moscow. With a domestic violence issue in the rear view window, Hardy has had a hard time escaping the past. Lewis apparently does not like Hardy, or his chances against Volkov.
