Former NFL player Greg Hardy didn't make many fans during his second career as a UFC fighter.
Hardy was greatly cheered by UFC fans as he battled a boring three round which was initially decided unanimously in his favor, only to be canceled later without a race, as Hardy was seen using an inhaler between rounds in violation of mixed martial arts rules.
Although Hardy claims after the match that he was told that using an inhaler is allowed, fighters are expected to know rules that say athletes cannot use any type of medicine during duels and cannot consume nothing but water between the rounds.
After being one of the NFL's top rushers, Hardy became one of the guys with posters about the league's domestic violence issue and no NFL team has been interested in his services since his 2015 UFC season. however, it welcomes him with open arms.
Hardy's opponent, Ben Sosolli, is a novice fighter who has no business in a high-level UFC event. Although he faced an easy opponent, Hardy didn't look particularly impressive. For some reason, the UFC continues to compare Hardy to defeated opponents who have no chance of defeating him. The reason for this may be ESPN, which televises the UFC and likes to have a former NFL player who is a recognizable name for sports fans – even if his name is mostly recognized, as he is a coin in the NFL. this domestic violence case.  But even though Hardy continues to get easy opponents, he doesn't always win. He won two of his four UFC duels by technical knockout in the first round, but also lost one duel by disqualification and had no competition last night. He'll probably fight again in the UFC soon, probably against another invincible opponent, probably in a fight ESPN will air on television and help promote himself, and he'll probably continue to hear the boom from fans who don't want him in the Octagon NFL fans want him on the field.
