“Lorenzo and I called Dan Hardy a couple weeks ago and got him set up with the best cardiologist in the country. He didn’t want to go. He’s in serious denial right now. Either denial or just afraid to hear from somebody that that’s the truth and that’s what’s going on. So after he turned it down, I called him back and said, ‘Dude, are you crazy? We’re offering you a chance to go see the best guy. Just get this second opinion. You’re literally insane if you don’t go do this.’ He said, ‘You know what Dana, I’m going through a lot of stuff personally right now. I’m getting married, I have a lot of family coming into town and just dealing with this whole thing at the same time. It’s driving me crazy so I just want to put this on the backburner until I’m done with my family stuff and then we’ll talk.’ Once he gets this done, hopefully we can get him out there to see this doctor. Hopefully he was misdiagnosed.”

Incase you have been under a rock, UFC welterweight fighter, Dan Hardy was recently forced to withdraw from his UFC on FOX 7 bout against Matt Brown due to a recently diagnosed condition of Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome.

During the pre-fight presser yesterday UFC President Dana White touched on the topic and gave the media an update.
