Greg Hardy’s UFC career could be coming to an end.
Hardy, the former NFL Pro Bowl defenseman who quit football after initially being found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend, lost his third straight fight on Saturday and his contract is up.
Moldova’s Serghei Spivac defeated Hardy via TKO at the 2:16 mark of the first round on Saturday at UFC 272who dropped Hardy to 4-5 in UFC since entering the sport in January 2019.
Hardy released a statement via Instagram after the fight.
“I’m fine, especially for those who want to know,” Hardy wrote. “No excuses, I have to get better. I don’t know what to do, but I’m sorry. There’s more to come for the Prince of War, I just need to pull myself together. Thanks to @ufc and @danawhite for being in my corner. Thank you coaches and training partners and agents @firstroundmgmt. Everyone did their job [except] To me. This is on me and I have no excuses. I refuse to die, but I definitely need to reevaluate.”
While that’s far from clear when it comes to his future, it does suggest that Hardy’s time at UFC may be over.
Hardy, 33, also has experience at lower levels of MMA. He turned to the sport after his football career fizzled out when he became persona non grata in the NFL after Deadspin posted photos of his girlfriend’s injuries from his alleged assault in 2015. Hardy appealed after being found guilty of assault and the cases were thrown after his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder stopped speaking to prosecutors.
