Default Hardy wants to face Hughes

"I've mentioned Matt Hughes to Lorenzo [Fertitta.] He's been on a rough streak as well recently, he'll look at me and see I've lost four fights and think he can outwrestle me. I also genuinely don't like him. I need a fight to get up for and I'd take great pleasure in smashing him in the face. I won't talk about why I don't like him, it's some knowledge I have about him away from the sport. Even students around where he lives bet against him."

As good a comeback fight as Hardy can have. A wrestler to try his moves on but one who happens to be suspect to a good strike.

HArdy said he was going to take a year off to work on his game completely. Doesn't seem the case anymore.

Yea...Lose 4 times straight only to call out one of the best wrestlers in UFC history, even if Matt is past it, he still shouldnt have a problem taking Hardy down.

Would be an interesting fight if it actually took place. It's stating the obvious to say Hardy needs to win his next fight.

The last thing hardy needs to do is fight another wrestler who will expose his ground game. Hardy should go to SF and get some fights in there, nobody should go 4 fights and not get demoted .

So you think the UFC is a legitimate sporting endeavour and not a billionaire playground?
A bit lame on Dans' part but an easy win, Hughes is more shot than 2pac.

The UFC needs Tom Hardy more than Tom Hardy needs the UFC

There it is in a nutshell, WW is stacked with wrestlers so Danny Boy is always going to struggle to string another meaningful run together. Maybe they could send all the strikers to STRIKEforce and leave all the grapplefockers with the UFC? Then they'd find out what people really preferred.

Koscheck likes to strike too and he doesn't like hardy last time i check. I could see this fight being a stand up war unless koscheck feels he can't beat hardy with his strikes.

Hardy is a bitch, calling out a shot old legend because he thinks it'll gain him some notoriety to prey on an ATG like Hughes. **** him. Feed him to Koscheck or Rory Mac so he can get wrestle****ed into retirement.
