Top European welterweight Dan Hardy is the latest British fighter to land a contract with the UFC.

The 25-year-old kickboxer from Nottingham in central England will strive to follow in the footsteps of "Ultimate Fighter" season three winner Michael Bisping and become another showpiece for the United Kingdom.

I like to see new foreign talent in the UFC and Hardy has the tools to impress! I can't wait to see his debut!

Dans a good fighter, not sure how well he'll transition into the mw division though, he was never a huge ww.

Is he going into the mw division?

He looks like he would be better at 155 not 185

Looks like a misread the article and he is going to WW. I agree though, he could probably make 155.

Agree, he does look a bit small for WW, looks good, but i think he is gonna have some trouble with good wrestlers (Koscheck, sanchez, Burkman, etc....)

I saw Dan Hardy fight 2/3 at a strikeforce event in coventry. I was never that impressed with him. I would obviously cheer him on though as he is from the UK.

Never seen him fight.


What sort of level is he at and has he fought any high calibre opponents yet ?
