Keeping with its once-a-year fall event, the UFC is returning to the U.K. on Sept. 29.

Officials announced this past weekend that Nottingham's 10,000-seat Capital FM Arena is set to play host to the yet-unnamed event.

Broadcast plans aren't official, but an official told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the event could air live stateside as a UFC on FUEL TV event on Saturday afternoon.

No matchups have been announced, though UFC president Dana White recently mentioned UFC 146 winners Dan Hardy (24-10 MMA, 5-4 UFC) and Paul Sass (13-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC), as well as "The Ultimate Fighter: Live" injured cast member Andy Ogle (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), as possible participants. All are U.K. fighters.

why should Hardy be in the main event? I love the guy but he just snapped a 4 fight losing streak. Co-main, sure but the fans going to that event deserve better than a relatively meaningless fight (in terms of title implications) as it's headliner.

My reasons:
A. It's a Fuel card
B. Dan Hardy fought Chris Lytle as a Headliner for a Versus card.(while ON a losing steak)
C. UFC love to give Countrymen fights in their country or hometowns.
D. Dan hard is fun to watch matched with the right person....They would match him with the right person.
E. Doesn't mean the card is going to be bad, UFC on Versus 5 Had Cerrone/Ben Henderson/Ed hermen heel hook.
F. Who wouldn't tune on a fight with Dan Hardy in it?

You're my boy Bubbs, but this guy has all the reasons I thought of and more. I'm not going to be pissed about a local headlining a card especially one with the following of Hardy.
