Greg Hardy's apparent victory over Ben Sosoli Friday night at UFC Boston was ruled a no-contest after the former NFL player used an inhaler between the second and third rounds.
UFC executive Marc Ratner said that the inhaler was not approved for use, according to Yahoo's Kevin Iole.
"Me and my coach asked the commission if it would be OK to use my inhaler, and they said yes, so I took it," Hardy said afterward, according to TSN's Aaron Bronsteter. "I'm still the 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."
With the no-contest, Hardy's record remains at 2-1 in the UFC and 5-1 as a professional.
