Matt Riddle Calls for Dan Hardy Fight, Rails on British Fan that Spit at Him   [View Full Version]
prophecy033 » Posted 7/4/07 4:41:00AM

Dan Hardy already has his next fight lined up. He’s scheduled to fight in his hometown of Nottingham, England, against Amir Sadollah on Sept. 29 at UFC on Fuel TV 5.

But he may already have his next opponent after that… or if Sadollah happens to fall off the card, Matt Riddle is in the wings, ready and waiting.

After he defeated Chris Clements with the UFC 149 Submission of the Night on Saturday night in Calgary, Riddle mentioned at the post-fight press conference that he would really like to fight Hardy next.

“I’m down to fight anybody at any given time, anywhere,” Riddle remarked at the post-fight press conference. “I just picked Dan Hardy because he’s got a lot of hype behind him and I know that it will put me on the map for sure. I have nothing personal against him, but a win over him, I guarantee everybody knows my name afterwards.”

But that was when the fun began. Perhaps when we found out the truth behind Riddle’s “Dan Hardy callout.”

“I heard Riddle hates English people,” UFC president Dana White offhandedly remarked.

“I will be completely honest, when I fought in Manchester, England, they were very cruel to me,” Riddle retorted. “One fan actually spit directly in my face and he was lucky enough where it hit my mouth.”

“Wow. I was kidding,” laughed White.

“We are definitely making the Dan Hardy fight!”


...of course Dana could've been kidding when he said that.

It's a little odd to want to make Dan Hardy pay for what some fan in the stands did. But if Riddle fights like he did at 149, I'd pick him.

I like Riddle, but he seems to have that gameplan that says "fight to excite the crowd, not necessarily to win". And let's face it, we're here to make picks ...WAR PLAYGROUND!

Do you wan't to put in in the camel clutch, break his back and make him humble? All kidding aside that was one of the best subs I've seen in a long time.

Yes the old country way!! Not trying to take away from his sub, because it was nice, but that rather stupid of Clements to swing wildly like that, don't feel bad at all he got caught.

Lmao Hardy couldnt even smack my bitch up

Hes done

He should stick to shadowboxing and giving the middle finger it makes him look tougher than when he fights

Since Riddle has impenetrable striking defense on boards now, I can't see how Hardy could even land a punch.
