Default Hardy/Ludwig

The Outlaw is back.

Dan Hardy will return to action at UFC 146 in May where he will face fellow striker Duane “Bang” Ludwig.

UFC officials confirmed verbal agreements are in place for the welterweight showdown.

It wasn’t long ago that Dan Hardy was fighting for the UFC welterweight title, but four losses in a row have put the Brit on hard times.

Now returning to action after several months away from the cage to revamp and recharge, Hardy is ready to get back to business and it starts at UFC 146.

Facing Hardy will be fellow heavy hitter Duane “Bang” Ludwig.

Ludwig will also be looking to bounce back from a loss after being choked out by Josh Neer at UFC on FX 1 in Nashville in January.

Prior to that loss, Ludwig won his last two bouts in a row in the Octagon.

The welterweights square off at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas where heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos meets top contender Alistair Overeem in the main event.

I used to be a big Hardy fan. I don't like him now and I feel torn cos I hate going against someone I used to adore...
However he said some vicious things about my most fave so his time is up.

Now If he doesn't win this fight he should retire.

Ludwig's striking was spot on against Neer. He hurt Neer badly. Not too many people can say that. I think Hardy is too one dimensional to exploit Ludwig's poor grappling, and I don't think Hardy's standup while good is in the same league. If he stands it will be painfulf or Hardy, I think.

I agree dan has good standup and horrible grappling, Ludwig has GREAT standup and even more horrible grappling. I was really really impressed with Ludwig's striking.

I personally wanted to see Pierce/Hardy fight, but the UFC would not want a wrestler vs Hardy. Even though Hardy has the nerve to call out legends.
