Hardy (20-0 in boxing and 1-0 MMA) won her first professional MMA fight at Bellator 180 defeating Alice Yauger via TKO in round three. She will be returning under the Bellator lights once again October 20, 2017, at Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut.
Hardy plans to compete in both MMA and boxing and assures everyone that she has not let her boxing training lack, but is adding to her regimen. Hardy said, “I am absolutely in love with MMA and is happy that the exposure for women in combat sports overall is growing.”
Along with her Bellator contract, she is hoping to obtain more opportunities in the boxing world as well.
