In the main card of UFC on ESPN 6, former Dallas Cowboy defensive end took on Aussie Ben Sosoli at the TD Garden Arena in Boston. The fight, however, ended in a ‘No Contest’.

Initially, Greg Hardy won the fight via unanimous decision, he ended up using an inhaler in his corner after the round two. However, the fighter and his manager Malki Kawa, the commission had approved it.

But that wasn’t the case as the commission never approved the use of the inhaler. An inspector said it was ok to use it and he didn’t have the authority to do so.

Greg Hardy has since issued a statement and here’s what he had to say about the fight being overturned into an ‘NC’.

I was in the ring, me and my coach asked the commission if it would be ok to use my inhaler and they said yes, so I took it.” Greg Hardy explained. “I’m still a new guy in this sport, I did what I do in every situation – I asked permission, I got permission and I did what I was told. In this fight, I wanted to prove I was a fighter. I said before the fight that I wanted to go out and put on a showcase and show the leaps and bounds that I’ve improved by. I was all about found the 15 minutes, showing some different weapons and not making so many rookie mistakes and just getting jabbed in the face.

It was a Din Thomas showcase, I have lots of weapons and a gas rank to use those consistently over all three rounds. Right now, we’re going back to the gym, put it together and let my team make the next decision.” Greg Hardy concluded. (H/T – BJPenn.com)
