Thought I’d stick this in its own thread. What’s happened here then?

Last we heard he was after a fight. I’m guessing that’s what has referring to with the ‘opportunity missed’ bit. Don’t know what the bit about the female employee is about though.

That's a big shame. I really warmed to Hardy over the last year. He was always paired with my least favourite commentator in John Gooden. I just assumed I didn't like either of them but when they started pairing Hardy with DC and other guys I realised how great he actually is at his job.

It's a weird story and weird circumstance and I feel like we might never get to the bottom of it.

The Herb Dean’s wife account is gone off Twitter now. I’m guessing it was a troll.

Laura Sanko’s shot down talk of her being the ‘female employee’ in question as well.

This whole thing is odd. Considering they’ve let wife beaters and possible rapists remain in the UFC, Hardy must’ve done something bad. I can’t see how him just having a disagreement or argument with someone would end in him getting the sack.

Hardy has posted a statement on his website.

Below is the statement.

 

"Apologies for my silence on this current situation. I’m still chasing answers privately, and it’s taking some time. This is what I can say, at this point.

It was a verbal disagreement between myself and a member of the UFC staff. It was forthright but not aggressive, and specific to work.

I have apologized to the individual, for the embarrassment they must have felt, as a small handful of our colleagues from the British media were present. We were taking a brief break from recording UFC 258 content, a few hours after the Holloway Kattar event had concluded, when the disagreement occurred. The conversation could have definitely taken place in a better location, and under better circumstances.

BT Sport have not fired me, and are still keen on working with me in some capacity. I’m appreciative of their interest in a continued collaboration. Thank you all for the support in the comments across their accounts. They are paying attention and making efforts, although there is pressure to push me out entirely.

The Raptors were quarantined for three weeks in order to attend UFC 259, but had their credentials revoked, so we’re diversifying our content a little, and appreciate your subs and support.

It has been suggested that a reconciliation between myself and the UFC is possible, and of course, I hope that is the case. I have yet to speak to, or hear from Dana, and get a better understanding of his perspective on the situation.

The result of their brief and private investigation has left me with little closure, and hope that at some point I’m able to get more information of what I’ve actually been accused.

I’m forever a fan of the UFC, and dedicated in service of MMA. I appreciate all of your kind words and support, both privately and publicly, and have lots of exciting offers to consider.

With respect and gratitude,

The Outlaw"

The fact he hasn't gone into any specific detail makes me think he knows he is in the wrong.

Hardy was probably on borrowed time after the Herb Dean incident, so one more mistake and he was gone. I listened to Morning Kombat the other day and the guys on there said whilst they had not had problems with Dan personally they did hint that he's known for being awkward to work with.

If he is gone for good, a Bellator role doing work for this new BBC deal sounds ideal. He'll probably land a fight there quite easily too.

Dan Hardy & Gareth A. Davies, just imagine.

Dana was very clear about it so I wouldn't be shocked if something like this happened again, https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/07/ufc-dana-white-responds-dan-hardy-herb-dean-zero-tolerance

Until McGregor does it. Then the silence will be deafening.
