Greg Hardy avoids bad kind of UFC history, makes heavyweight limit on second try

Greg Hardy was close to making infamous UFC history on Friday but avoided it.

At the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Hardy was the last man to step on the scale during the UFC on ESPN+ 39 official weigh-ins. He initially came in at 266.5 pounds, a half-pound over the heavyweight limit. The Nevada Athletic Commission brought out the hoop so he could strip down, but Hardy was still over.

Hardy was given an hour to shed the remaining weight, which he did. On his second attempt, Hardy tipped the scale at 264.5

Had Hardy missed the mark, he would have become the first heavyweight to miss weight in UFC history. He celebrated with a quick dance after making weight on his second try.

Hardy meets Maurice Greene on Saturday at UFC on ESPN+ 39, which streams entirely on ESPN+.
