Former Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy has not been able to find a job in the NFL, so now he is looking down a different career path.
On Tuesday, MMAFighting.com reported Hardy is set to make the transition to mixed martial arts and is preparing for his debut.
Hardy, who has no prior martial arts experience, has been reportedly training with his team in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for “several months” and has multiple promotions interested in his services.
According to Hardy, testing out the MMA waters is something he will take very seriously.
“I’m very focused and excited to start my MMA career,” Hardy said. “I’m going to do this the right way, I can assure you of that. I’m fully committed to being as successful as I can be in this sport.”
Hardy is expected to make his debut in the heavyweight division.
Most recently, Hardy, who was suspended for a majority of the 2014 season and four games during the 2015 NFL season for domestic violence incidents, was arrested on cocaine charges last month.
