The duel in heavy weight between the fighters of the mixed style (MMA) Greg hardy and Ben Sasoli in the tournament UFC on ESPN 6 was declared invalid. About this on Twitter said the journalist Ariel Helvani.

The battle ended with the victory of the hardy decision. However, the result was annulled due to the fact that the American used the inhaler between the second and third round. Hardy explained his actions by saying that he’s a rookie in MMA and not familiar with all the rules. He noted that before the battle he received permission to use the inhaler.

Vice-President of the UFC, mark Ratner in an interview with Mmafighting said that hardy was not entitled to use the inhaler. “It was illegal”, — he added.

Hardy is a former American football player. In 2010, he was drafted by the club in the National football League “Carolina Panthers”. In 2016, the athlete moved into mixed martial arts. In MMA, he scored six victories and suffered one defeat.
