Greg Hardy has lost three straight fights by TKO as he rolls into free agency, but he hasn’t lost hope.

At UFC 272, Hardy (7-5 MMA, 4-5 UFC) suffered yet another stoppage defeat on the ground, a place where he’s struggled to survive in the past. Moldovan heavyweight Serghei Spivac quickly dragged him to the canvas and finished the fight with ground-and-pound in Round 1. While he did not appear to go unconscious, Hardy seemed a bit out of it as doctors and commission officials attempted to help him onto a stool.

After the fight, Hardy released a statement in an Instagram post. With his UFC contract complete, Hardy did not specify what his next move is, but voiced optimism.

“I’m ok first of all for those who wana know,” Hardy posted. “No excuses, gotta get better. I don’t know what to do but say sorry. More coming for the prince of War just gotta get my shit together. Thank you to the @ufc and @danawhite for being in my corner. Thank you coaches and training partners and agents @firstroundmgmt. Everyone did their job accept for me. This one is on me and there are no excuses for me lacking. I refuse to die but I have to reevaluate for sure.”

UFC 272 took place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card streamed on ESPN+ pay-per-view after prelims on ESPN/ESPN+.
