Hardy, a former UFC welterweight contender, is named by Sky Sports as part of the UK and Ireland commentating team for the McGregor-Mayweather bout.
This will be the first boxing match that I’ve worked on. Obviously I’ve worked a lot with boxers in the past. I’ve trained alongside boxers because back in the day with mixed martial arts, they were the only real combat athletes around me that knew what they were doing. As soon as it becomes a mixed martial arts fight, (boxers) become interested. There have been questions that have come from (boxers) in the past that will prepare me for this, I think. I understand the boxing mentality and I understand what they’re going to be looking at as far as Conor McGregor as a new addition to the sport.
