Hardy added another feather to his well-adorned cap by winning the gold medal at the 2022 Ultimate Martial Arts Championships, dominating the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship held last year in Milton Keynes, England.

Hardy joined the contest quietly under his real name, Edward Hardy, and the organizers kept his participation a secret so as to avoid putting undue pressure on the actor. The audience and other competitors were surprised by his appearance, and his opponents commented that he was a tough fighter, as he went about winning all his matches.

Apparently, the star was able to channel his tough-guy personas into the ring, dominating other fighters and eventually taking home the gold. One of his opponents said: “I was shell-shocked. [Hardy] said, ‘Just forget it’s me and do what you would normally do.’ He’s a really strong guy…You wouldn’t think it with him being a celebrity.”
