“These guys that do it for real have a very specific way that they trade blows, it’s like speaking a foreign language for me,” said Hardy. “The hardest thing for me was to learn how to move my body in a way that was convincing.”

“At one point, look we all got injured and a lot of punches went through the guard,” Edgerton added.
