Greg Hardy has parted ways with the UFC.

Hardy is coming off a first-round knockout defeat to Sergei Spivak at UFC 272 last weekend. Following the setback, many speculated it could be his last fight in the Octagon as his contract had run out.

Although not officially announced, that appears to be the case as Hardy revealed the news on Instagram on Saturday as he reflected on his 10-fight career with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

“What a run, ya boy is far from done just got some fine tuning to do. Thank you to all my fans and haters. I appreciate you all. Mostly i appreciate my coaches, family, and the @ufc for giving me the opportunity to shine bright.”

Greg Hardy UFC Run Ends With Multiple KO Defeats

Hardy turned pro in 2018 and went 3-0 before signing with the UFC.

He suffered a DQ loss to Allen Crowder in his debut before racking up four wins in his next six.

However, he would get finished in his last three outings as he suffered knockout defeats to Marcin Tybura, Tai Tuivasa and Spivak.

Despite his athleticism, Hardy never truly belonged at the UFC and the difference in levels were shown in his most recent setbacks. However, his MMA chapter doesn’t have to end here, as he can always rack up some wins and experience in other promotions.

Overall, Hardy went 4-5 with one no contest in his UFC career.
