Greg Hardy has revealed that he’s had to pull out of his upcoming main card fight with Sergey Spivak at UFC 270 due to a grizzly finger injury.
Hardy had not long since learned that he was now going to be facing Spivak at next weekend’s event in Houston after originally being scheduled to fight Aleksei Oleinik, who had then withdrawn for undisclosed reasons.
Now it’s the 33-year-old Hardy who is bowing out of the fight and he posted up a photo on Instagram showing his bleeding and crooked finger to show why he’s unable to compete, while adding that this is actually after he popped the digit back into place.
Hardy does hope to be back in action soon however for what will be the final fight of his current UFC deal, and it’s believed that as things stand the UFC still intends to have him go up against Spivak.
Meanwhile, the injury-ravaged UFC 270 event proceeds with two title fights intact as heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou fights Ciryl Gane and flyweight titleholder Brandon Moreno undergoes a trilogy fight with Deiveson Figueiredo.
