The Bellator 185 ceremonial weigh-ins are in the books – and featured a rare altercation.
While Heather Hardy was facing off with opponent Kristina Williams, a fan came past the barricades and started shouting at her. It took three members of the Bellator staff to get her away from the stage and drag her back past the barricades while she shouted and pointed Hardy down the whole time.
Turns out it was Shelly Vincent, a boxer who fought Hardy in the ring in 2016. Hardy won by majority decision in New York for the WBC’s International women’s featherweight title. Prior to their fight, Vincent told The Ring magazine that Hardy was “everything that’s wrong with women’s boxing.”
So there’s beef there, for sure … but right now, Hardy is concerned with her next MMA fight.
