Weighing in at 245 lbs and standing at 6’4” tall, Texas City, Texas’ very own Jeremy Hardy is a force to reckon with in the MMA community. Being the current heavy weight champion for Superior Combative Championships, and having a record of 4-1, Hardy is a top tier Texas prospect that has a huge MMA future ahead of him. Growing up, he was never the over achiever in sports, although he did stay very active in football and basketball during high school. After high school, Jeremy landed a basketball scholarship to go attend Cedar Valley in Dallas. Although he, along with his family, had big dreams and hopes of one day making it to the NBA, Jeremy felt like it was time to come home and focus on raising his then, 2 year old daughter and obtain a degree for the plants in a community college.
With all the free time he had, he started to realize and crave the drive to stay active and be driven to start a new extra-curricular activity. Jeremy’s driven attitude to want something new, landed him his first step into becoming a mixed martial artists by being enrolled at Texas City Karate Academy with Richard Cazares. After a few years, he received his black belt and started teaching children Karate for Master Cazares. A few months after that, the joining and affiliation between Texas City Karate Academy and Master Zulfi Ahmed’s Bushi Ban started. Ever since the first day he stepped into the Fighter Elite head quarters gym, it has been Jeremy’s home and the best training he has ever received.
For this upcoming fight on February 15th, 2014, in Galveston Texas, Jeremy has had a great training camp with multiple great gyms in the Houston area such as: his home base (Bushiban HQ Pasadena with Master Ahmed), American Combative Systems, and 4 Oz Fight Club.
With a blue belt in Jiu-Jitsu and a black belt in Karate, Jeremy is on a mission this up and coming year. His goals of being able to go pro and further his MMA career with the UFC is in his mind and his main goals in this sport.
Jeremy has one last message to everybody and his fans:
“I could never be where I am at today if it weren’t for my amazing support system. I want to take a moment to thank all of you. My children and family, foremost, has always been there, has always supported my dreams, and never fail to keep giving me the motivation and drive to get up and get to training and pull my wins. My friends, fans, training partners, coaches, promoters, and sponsors, thank you all for everything you do, from the smallest things like buying tickets, training with me even 5 minutes after class, to giving me the opportunities on these fight cards to prove myself, and by letting me put your names on my shorts. I will forever be grateful for my opportunities in this sport, and to all of you who have supported me from day one. Thank you. “
