Heather Hardy beats Ana Julaton in MMA fight
Undefeated professional boxer Heather Hardy continued her foray into mixed martial arts, this time defeating rival and former professional boxing champion Ana Julaton in a somewhat entertaining affair.
The bout which served as the co-main event to Roy Nelson vs. Matt Mitrione II on the Paramount Network and promoted by Bellator MMA, saw Hardy out strike Julaton forcing Julaton to try and get the fight to the ground though fairly unsuccessfully in the first round as a rear-naked choke nearly stopped the bout in the first. Julaton improved as the fight wore on having success in spurts, but unable to tame Hardy who seemed unstoppable.
The judges scored the bout 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27.
