BOSTON — Once again, Greg Hardy’s name is surrounded in controversy.
Greg Hardy defeated Ben Sosoli via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night Boston held at TD Garden, but the fight was later ruled a no contest because Hardy used an inhaler between the second and third rounds of the fight.
According to the three judges, Hardy won two of three rounds against Sosoli. Hours later, the UFC ruled the fight a no contest because of Hardy’s usage of the inhaler. In a statement, Hardy said that he had asked permission to use the inhaler.
During his post-fight press conference, Hardy explained that he’s used an inhaler throughout his athletic career.
Prior to Friday night, Hardy’s five wins had come via first-round knockout and his lone loss was a second-round disqualification because of an illegal knee.
