Former title challenger Dan Hardy (23-10 MMA, 4-4 UFC) will look to end his lengthy UFC losing skid against Duane "Bang" Ludwig (21-12 MMA, 4-3 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the welterweights have verbally agreed to meet at UFC 146.

The event takes place May 26 in Las Vegas at MGM Grand Garden Arena, likely with a heavyweight headliner between champion Junior Dos Santos and top contender Alistair Overeem.

The main card airs on pay-per-view, and prelims are expected to stream on FX. It's not clear where Hardy vs. Ludwig will be placed in the lineup.

Both of these fighters are hit and miss. You never know which of either of them will show up, but they always bring it. I think Hardy *should* win this but his game may depend mostly on his mental state. He sounded more than a wee bit depressed in an interview from not too long ago.

Good matchup for both fighters, Hopefully Hardy gets back to his winning ways here. I bet he'll be more motivated than ever.

Sounds like a standup war to me but I'm rooting duane because of his last fight against the dentist he was busting him up bad before he got caught with a sub and if hardy ground game stays the same this should be a stand up battle

Feel sorry for Hardy. He needs a striker vs. striker match-up but too bad it's Ludwig, who has some of best striking in MMA.

I think Hardy would rather brawl and be out cold on his back than wrestle-humped for 15 minutes by Rumble.

Unless he's fighting Lytle, where he's the one shooting for desperate takedowns.

If it's a close decision they will give it to Hardy but I gotta favor Duane's striking over Dan's.
