Adams had talked a lot of trash in the lead up to the heavyweight division encounter, with Hardy saying Adams acted like a child after their battle had ended.
It would seem like the two rivals have patched things up, according to an Instagram post from Hardy:
To all my fans, hey guys let’s give #juanAdams a second chance. I see people bashing him and reacting to his reaction. But let’s remember when we where asking for my second chance. Let’s be the change and extend a hand of understanding and believe he can be better. #GodBless you Juan and thank you for the scrap. #payitforward #princeofwar
Adams would issue the following comment in response to what Hardy said in the Instagram post’s comments section:
“I know social media apologies mean nothing but i (sic) sincerely apologize for the headache I May have caused you. I spoke to your uncle in the lobby and it opened my eyes to a lot. Have a good career.”
Hardy has been at the center of controversy since being signed by the UFC, with the majority of that coming from past domestic abuse allegations levied against the fighter during his days in the NFL.
