Warriors' own Dan 'The Outlaw' Hardy will face UFC & Pride veteran Akihiro Gono at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham on October 18th as his inaugural UFC fight since signing in May of this year.

Hardy, who signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship back in May of this year, sports an impressive 19-6-0-1nc record and is widely regarded as one of Europe's top pound-for-pound fighters. Already the Cage Warriors Welterweight and Light-Welterweight World Champion Hardy holds wins over the likes of former King of Pancrase; Daizo Ishige, the K-1 Heros veteran; Hidetaka Monma and the two time UFC veteran Chad Reiner.

Finally! I was wonder if I would ever see Gono fight again. This a tough matchup on both sides. A lot to gain and a lot to lose it should be a great fight! I am undecided as of right now but leaning toward Gono.

Gono by armbar in round 2, since he's moved to welterweight he's looked great.
