From the BBC

I hope he can be allowed to fight, I know Dan will never hold the strap but hes still one of the most entertaining fighters out there.

Hardy wasn't allowed to fight due to health concerns.

The commission viewed his condition as an unfair advantage over other fighters.

Maybe Condit's hook should be known as the "natural born killer", just look what it did to Dan Hardy! In all seriousness though, hopefully this isn't the end of Hardy's career. I may not have liked him as a fighter but hopefully he gets through this and continues to put on good fights.

I don't know.
Heart problems seems like a bit too much for me.
Is it worthy to risk your life?

Im still waiting to find out the whole thing was a joke, I guess not... I hope all goes well for the guy.. My oldest son (13yrs now) had heart surgery when he was 4yrs old, the heart is a very complicated issue.. Like I said, I wish him the best...

A statement from Dan

Quote:
I've been thinking about it, and I don't want to think for a second that I'm done fighting, because I still love training and fighting. At the same time, I also feel that there are lots of other things that I should be doing, things that I should be concentrating on in different areas of my life. What it comes down to, though, is what the UFC is going to have to say on it. I certainly don't know where the UFC stands on using me to fight in other states, because obviously now, this will be on my medical record. I've got a wolf heart, and now everybody knows it [laughs]. Then you have to wonder if the UFC can use me on shows in Europe or Australia, or things like that. Those are also options to consider. I just know that, at this point, I'm not going to have the surgery, because I don't think I really need it. If, at any point, I start to feel like it might be necessary, I'll start considering it. As of right now, I'm good, and I don't want anybody messing with me
