Dan Hardy Not Planning On Being Part Of UFC’s Return To England In 2013

Dan Hardy is used to hearing his name mentioned in possible fights. “The Outlaw,” however, has decided to end all talk of a potential match in February rather quickly.

Hardy was rumored to be headed for a bout with Siyar Bahadurzada at UFC on Fuel TV 7 February 16 from Wembley Arena. Bahadurzada even asked Hardy via Twitter about facing off with him.

“Sorry mate, I won’t be ready to fight in February,” Hardy responded on Monday. “Enjoy fighting in London though, the UK fans are always great.”

Hardy (25-10) has won two straight since a four-fight losing streak nearly forced his exit from the UFC. Since joining the promotion in 2008, Hardy has competed in his native country five times, including earlier this year in a win over Amir Sadollah.
