With Aleksei Oleinik out, Greg Hardy vs. Sergei Spivac set for UFC 270

It seems like we can’t go a day without a fight cancellation, and today is no exception.

Ariel Helwani reported that veteran heavyweight Aleksei Oleinik has withdrawn from his UFC 270 main card matchup with Greg Hardy. In Oleinik’s place will be the man who just beat him, Sergei Spivac.

Hardy (7-4, 1 NC) is entering the last bout of his UFC contract on a two-fight losing streak. The disgraced former NFL pass rusher is coming off a brutal KO against Tai Tuivasa at UFC 264 in July. Preceding that defeat was a second-round TKO to veteran Marcin Tybura.
