Default Swick v Hardy UFC 105

Following Martin Kampmann's devastating loss to Paul Daley at UFC 103, fans and critics alike were wondering who could possibly fit the bill to face Mike Swick with the winner gunning for a shot at UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. It looks like that question has been answered in the form of British fighter Dan Hardy, who will face Swick at UFC 105 in England.

Mike Chiappetta of AOL Fanhouse first reported the news on Monday citing UFC president Dana White, and MMAWeekly.com has since confirmed the bout with sources close to the negotiations.

Swick was forced out of his scheduled UFC 103 bout against Kampmann due to a concussion sustained in training, but the American Kickboxing Academy stand out is back to form and chomping at the bit to get in the Octagon.

Currently sitting with an undefeated record as a 170-pound fighter, Swick has looked impressive in his last few bouts, including a dominating performance over Ben Saunders in his last trip out.

The hometown crowd will definitely be behind its countryman, Hardy, at UFC 105 as he hails from Great Britain and has amassed a 3-0 record in the UFC.

Hardy impressed the world with his last fight, a win over tough as nails welterweight Marcus Davis. Now he's looking to step up again as he faces Swick for a potential shot at the championship in 2010.

Currently rehabilitating an injury, St. Pierre last week told MMAWeekly.com that he intends to return to training sometime in October. His representative, Shari Spencer, said he will likely return to the Octagon in early 2010.

Originally, Hardy was scheduled to face Korean fighter, Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 105, but the promotion moved him out of that fight and into the bout against Swick. There has been no word on whether or not Kim will remain on the card for UFC 105.

Stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com for more information on UFC 105 as it becomes available.

Wow thats a big step for Dan Hardy, but I supppose Davis was a big win. Either way I think GSP handles swick or Hardy with out much drama at all
