Juan “the Kraken” Adams (5-1-0) is the next in-line to welcome former NFL star Greg Hardy (4-1-0) into the UFC octagon, in an eagerly awaited heavyweight clash between two men who don’t have a great deal of love or respect for one another.
Hardy is having his fifth fight in the UFC, while Adams is having just his third, so there really a lot at stake for these two relatively inexperienced heavyweights looking to establish a name for themselves.
There is little disputing the fact that Greg Hardy has a lot of power in his hands. He is also a supreme athlete and is hungry to make his name in the sport of MMA. But there is a reality in MMA that cannot be denied when it comes to experience and Juan Adams just has a bit more history to his time in the sport and that can come into play in this fight.
Juan Adams won all four of his amateur fights and also won his first five fights as a professional. He possesses excellent knees, vicious ground and pound and decent movement and striking too. A decision loss in his last UFC fight shouldn’t dent his confidence too much, as that further 15 minutes of octagon time is invaluable experience and in the pre-fight trash talk.
