Report: Georges St-Pierre vs. Dan Hardy In The Works for UFC 111 in March in New Jersey

Georges St-PierreWelterweight champ Georges St-Pierre’s upcoming title defense against top contender Dan Hardy is in the works to headline UFC 111, which will take place in March at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, according to MMA Fanhouse.

Prior to Saturday’s UFC 106 event, UFC President Dana White mentioned that the fight was expected to take place in February, likely as the main event of UFC 110 in Australia, but the promotion has instead booked Wanderlei Silva vs. Michael Bisping to headline UFC 110 and opted to have GSP-Hardy take place stateside.

St-Pierre (19-2) is currently riding a six-fight winning streak that includes title defenses over BJ Penn and Thiago Alves in 2009, but has been sidelined since July due to a groin injury suffered in his unanimous decision win over Alves at UFC 100.

Hardy (23-6) earned a shot at St-Pierre earlier this month with a unanimous decision win over Mike Swick at UFC 105, his seventh-straight win and fourth-straight inside the Octagon.
