UFC women's flyweight fighter Veronica Hardy has had a mixed career in the sport. She faced Ashlee Evans-Smith in her UFC debut in 2016, losing in the third round via technical knockout.
Her next two fights against Andrea Lee and Gillian Robertson also ended in losses, but her fight against Lee earned her the Fight of the Night bonus.
Hardy was scheduled to fight Amanda Lemos in December 2019 but was not cleared to fight due to severe headaches. After suffering a loss to Bea Malecki in March 2020, she retired from MMA due to concussion issues.
