The Dan Hardy (25-10-1 NC) who fought Carlos Condit (28-5) at UFC 120 in 2010 was not the same person who returned to the UFC earlier this year.
“The old Dan Hardy got knocked out by Carlos Condit,” said Hardy.
Hardy’s status in the company was questioned after dropping four fights in a row under the UFC name. He has since started a two fight win streak.
As for what’s next, Hardy plans to take it one fight at a time in a division that he sees as stacked.
“It’s a deep division,” said Hardy. “I made the mistake of looking too far ahead in the past. Now I’m just focused on my journey.”
