UFC 264 Tai Tuivasa vs. Greg Hardy Betting Information
Tai Tuivasa enters this match bringing his momentum from winning back-to-back matches against Stefan Struve and Harry Hunsucker. Both fights ended in knockouts and in the first round. Prior to that, Tuivasa struggled and lost to big names such as Junior dos Santos, Blagoy Ivanov, and Sergey Spivak. This heavyweight who tips the scales at 265 lbs carries the ring name “Bam Bam” and will look forward to bringing honor to his hometown in Sydney, New South Wales in Australia. Tuivasa has won 10 of his 11 matches via knockouts and that is what we expect him to do if he takes the victory.
Greg Hardy is a tall fighter at six-foot-five and weighs 265 lbs. His last match was against Marcin Tybura just this December and he got knocked out in the second round with a barrage of punches. Prior to suffering a loss, he was able to conquer Maurice Greene and Yorgan de Castro. Hardy now has a 7-3 professional fighting record and as most heavyweights, a bulk of his wins came from knockouts. Expect him to use his length to keep away from Tuivasa’s hands and try to win from a distance. Hardy is not an easy fighter to take down as he trains at the American Top Team stable.
