Update: Dan Hardy reacted reports that he was fired from UFC and claimed that they were not accurate. However, Dan did confirm that he’s no longer working with UFC but the part about the female employee is ‘irrelevant.’

Dan Hardy has been fired by the UFC. The 38-year-old former UFC welterweight contender also worked for the UFC and BT Sport as an analyst.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Dan Hardy has been let go by the UFC. Dave Meltzer said that Hardy had an argument with a female employee during one of the UFC’s recent shows on Yas Island. BT Sport and UFC both fined Hardy over the alleged incident.

Hardy has yet to confirm the report, but one recent tweet seemed to indicate that his integrity was questioned and he was insulted.


There is nothing more insulting, than to have your integrity questioned by someone with questionable integrity. #FixUp #LookSharp #ActRight

This is an interesting situation and it could mean a shake-up for BT Sport’s on-air team is coming soon. As of this writing the UFC has not confirmed this report either.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
