Dan Hardy looking to smash Matt Hughes in the facePosted on December 22, 2011, 06:54 PM by Trent Reinsmith
The last time Dan Hardy was in the Octagon he was submitted by Chris Lytle via guillotine choke during their main event fight at the August 14 UFC Live event. The loss was Hardy’s fourth straight defeat with the UFC. Prior to that extended losing streak Hardy had gone 12-1 in his previous 13 fights.
Even with four straight defeats, Hardy remains on the UFC roster, most likely due to the fact that he is a fighter that can be counted on to attempt to put on an entertaining fight, no matter who his opponent is. With that in mind, Hardy has an idea who he would like his next opponent to be when he returns to the Octagon.
"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." – for more see ESPN.com
