Antoni Hardonk Leaves MMA World to Go Full-Time Coaching
"For me, it wasn't really something that I planned, like,'Oh, I'm at a certain age. I’m going to retire." --- Antoni Hardonk, UFC fighter
Antoni Hardonk, who has an 8-6 pro MMA and a 10-5 pro kickboxing record, has finished his UFC career with a 4-4 mark. His remarkable fight was in 2008, when he won three consecutive fights by a knock out against Colin Robinson, Eddie Sanchez and Mike Wessel. However, the dark moment of his career is when he was defeated by Chieck Kongo in 2009, followed by a loss to Pat Barry in a ‘Fight of the Night’ performance.
The 35-year old, Antoni Hardonk, has recently opened his Dynamix Martial Arts gym in Santa Monica, California where he trains Vladimir Matyushenko, Stefan Struve and Jared Hamman.
