The MMA fanbase in Singapore won’t be getting the services of the ‘Prince of War’.

A heavy handed slugfest was headed to UFC Singapore on October 26 in Kallang, Singapore as rising figure Greg Hardy was slated to take on Jarjis ‘Man Mountain’ Danho. The fight however has fallen through as Danho pulled out of the fight.

 

The UFC has not only given Hardy a new opponent but has shifted him to another card all together. Hardy will now take on Contender Series and Ultimate Fighter alum Ben Sosoli. 

Hardy (5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) started his UFC career with a disappointing disqualification courtesy of an illegal knee, which went as a ‘L’ on his record. However after that, Hardy was able to showcase his athletic background, as he absolutely starched his opponent in the first round.

Hardy’s grappling however was still a question mark, on which his next opponent tried to exploit on. Hardy however was able to stuff that takedown and butcher his opponent with punches to complete a two-fight first round knockout streak.

Sosoli (7-2 MMA) fought on the Contender Series where an accidental eye poke ended the fight. He also competed on ‘The Ultimate Fighter 28’ where he lost to Juan Espino who went on to win the finale.
