White: Hardy is in 'denial' over heart condition

Quote:
UFC president Dana White claims Dan Hardy is in "serious denial" regarding the heart condition that may spell the end of his fighting career.

Hardy had been set to fight this weekend in San Jose, but had to be pulled from his bout with Matt Brown after an EKG discovered he had Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

The condition affects the heart and, while it may never cause Hardy a problem, it would represent a risk on behalf of both the fighter and the company to allow him into the Octagon.

White did not say a final decision has been made on the Brit's future, but he revealed Hardy has opted out of further examinations while he focuses on getting married.

"Lorenzo [Fertitta, UFC CEO] and I called Dan Hardy a couple weeks ago and got him set up with the best cardiologist in the country and he didn't want to go," White said.

"He's in serious denial right now or just afraid to hear from somebody that that's the truth or that's what's going on."

White then paraphrased a chat he had with Hardy, in which The Outlaw reportedly said: "I'm going through a lot of stuff personally right now, I'm getting married. I have a lot of family coming into town and just dealing with this whole thing at the same time is driving me crazy. I just want to put this on the back burner until I get my family stuff taken care of."

Hardy remains the only Brit to have ever challenged for a UFC title after he lost to Georges St-Pierre. He is currently riding a two-fight win streak but may not get the chance to extend that run.

Dan Hardy ‏@danhardymma 1h

I have to say, I'm pretty damn disappointed that I'm not fighting tomorrow.

Hope when this does get sorted out it is good news and he is back in the octagon in no time.

Doesn't sound positive from Dana White and it would be sad to see The Outlaw bow out like this.

Dan being the guy who got me into this crazy sport I'd love to him one more time in there!
