After heckling Heather "The Heat" Hardy -- and getting tossed out by security -- at the Bellator 185 weigh-in, Shelly Vincent wasn't expected to show up to Mohegan Sun for the fights the following night. Most folks in the MMA community thought she got her kicks in at the weigh-in, and wouldn't dare risk starting trouble during the actual fights.
The Connecticut native got her message across at the weigh-in: that she was waiting for Hardy, whenever the New York talent decides to return to the boxing ring.
Shockingly, Vincent did turn up for fight night and had floor level seats, sneaking down into the media section during the main card. As "The Heat" walked out to the cage for her fight against Kristina Williams, Vincent took a seat next to journalist Kerry Stellar on press row. The hard-hitting boxer quickly had cameras aimed in her direction, as the media wanted to know exactly what she would do during the fight.
Was she there to cause more drama? What kind of heckling and taunting did she have planned? As it would turn out, Vincent's trolling on fight night turned out to be much milder than her shenanigans from the weigh-ins. During the first round, the 38-year-old whipped out her camera and started filming, while singing part of Hardy's signature walkout song -- Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire."
Later in the fight, Vincent was seen popping out of her seat while pointing a finger in Hardy's direction, making a goofy face as the media snapped pics of her. Vincent has a long-running feud with Hardy because the two locks horns in a boxing match last year. "Shelito's Way" dropped a close decision, and has been eyeing a rematch ever since.
With Hardy and Vincent both now in their late 30s, time may be running out for them to run it back. Hopefully, the rematch happens -- either in a boxing ring or inside the Bellator MMA cage -- before all is said and done.
