Matt Riddle, who just fought and won at Saturday night’s UFC 154 in Montreal, has made no secret of whom he wants to fight next… Dan Hardy. Riddle, after each of his two most recent bouts, has pleaded for a fight with the British bomber.
His pleas, however, have been met with little enthusiasm from Hardy.
“I’m not a matchmaker and that’s not my job, but if I was to pick an opponent, (a fight with Riddle) wouldn’t even come into my head, to be honest,” Hardy told Fuel TV recently.
“I don’t like looking at the guy, so obviously training for him for eight weeks would be tiring,” he quipped.
“There’s a lot of talent in the division, so many good guys coming up, and obviously, guys that have been at the top that aren’t maybe right near the top at the moment,” said Hardy. “I’m open. There’s a lot of good fighters, a lot fun fights.
“Maybe Koscheck on The Ultimate Fighter… if I had to choose.”LINK
