Check out the latest breaking UFC NEWS


UFC on ESPN 4 turned out to be an easy night of work for Greg Hardy. In what was probably the most anticipated fight on the card, the former NFL All-Pro TKO’d Juan Adams in just 45 seconds of their heavyweight grudge match.

Hardy used an onslaught of punches to the head after a failed takedown attempt by Adams, who immediately protested the outcome to referee Dan Miragliotta. Moments later, Adams stormed out of the octagon without partaking in Bruce Buffer’s announcement of the winner.

In that moment, something seemed to bother Miragliotta. As pointed out on Twitter, the veteran referee shook his head at Hardy before walking away.

You can watch it below:

“Big Dan didn’t approve” was the tweet from Twitter user @SteveKMMA. OK, but what didn’t Miragliotta approve of?

Hardy’s dance celebration? Was Miragliotta having second thoughts about the stoppage? Is he not a fan of Hardy in general? Guess we won’t know for sure unless Miragliotta spills the beans, but obviously something caused that reaction.
