UFC on ESPN 6 results: Greg Hardy triumph denatured to no competition aft inhalator use

With a small help from an inhalator, Greg Hardy attained his 3rd UFC triumph on Friday nighttime – until it went away.

The arguable denseweight was conveniently pulsating Ben Sosoli in the UFC on ESPN 6 main-card bout at Boston’s TD Garden. But he was also perceptibly deceleration down and eupneic dense at the end of the 2nd round.

Between rounds, Hardy (5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) took a hit from an inhalator. Then he went out and dressed the 3rd, and was primitively awarded a consentaneous decision on scores of 30-27 across the board. That result, however, was reversed and later ruled a no competition by the Massachusetts State Athletic Commission because of Hardy’s inhalator use.

“I was in the ring. Me and my coach asked the commission if it would be OK to use my inhalator, and they said yes, so I took it,” Hardy said. “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.”

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole, UFC president Dana White said use of the inhalator had been approved but that ultimately wasn’t the case.

Hardy showed improved striking, footwork and pacing over the course of 15 minutes. He landed crisp jabs every time his smaller foe waded in, and he peppered Sosoli (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) with kicks throughout the fight.

Sosoli, who unlike some of Hardy’s previous foes, didn’t look intimidated, landed occasional dense hands but was never able to untrack any sustained offense.

It’s the 2nd arguable result for Hardy in the UFC. In his promotional debut back in January, Hardy was disqualified for throwing an illegal knee in a fight with Allen Crowder.
