UFC’s Allen Crowder I Forgive Greg Hardy … Knee Wasn’t Dirty
Allen Crowder — the UFC fighter who took a vicious knee to the head from Greg Hardy on Saturday — says the move was NOT a dirty one … telling TMZ Sports, “sh*t happens.”
Hardy and Crowder squared off in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+ … but the match ended in the 2nd round after Greg blasted Allen with a right knee to the temple while he was still down.
Hardy was DQ’d … and given his troubled past — many wondered if the ex-NFL player who has been previously accused of domestic violence MEANT to throw the illegal shot.
But, Crowder says he doesn’t think Hardy had any malicious intentions with the move … saying, “it’s a fight. It’s the heat of the moment.”
“There’s a lot of people that have made the same mistake. I have no hard feelings against him at all. He was tired, and sh*t happens. I have no hard feelings about it at all.”
For his part … Greg says he didn’t know the knee was illegal — saying, “it was not intentional.”
FYI … Crowder says if officials had given him another 30-or-so seconds — he woulda gotten up and continued the fight.
As for a rematch … Crowder says he’d be down — if the price is right.
