Greg Hardy says he’s feeling extremely “positive” after his impressive UFC performance on Tuesday — and says he wants to prove to his haters that he’s truly a changed man. 

TMZ Sports spoke with the ex-NFL star after his 57-second knockout victory over Austen Lane on Dana White‘s Tuesday Night Contender Series … and you can tell he’s excited about his MMA future. 

“I’m feeling great. I’m feeling positive. I’m feeling excited. I’m ready to go … ready to take this next step and see where it takes us.”

Hardy knows his new UFC contract will come with scrutiny because of his troubled past — including allegations of domestic violence — but says he hopes people will give him a chance to prove he’s not a monster. 

“It would be best to meet me, give me an opportunity,” Hardy said … “I think I can win a lot of people back over to my side.”

As we previously reported, Dana White wants Hardy to get a couple more fights under his belt before he matches up with a major UFC opponent … but Hardy says he’s already got his sights on Derrick Lewis

“Soon enough, you’re gonna see me in front of the Black Beast!”
