UFC Headed to Nottingham, Dan Hardy Likely to Appear on the Card

With his first-round knockout victory of Duane “Bang” Ludwig over the weekend, Dan Hardy saved his job with the UFC – he may also have secured an opportunity to perform in front of his countrymen.

After alluding to a UFC event slated to take place in Nottingham, England on last week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Live, UFC president Dana White has confirmed the promotion’s plans to hold an event in The Outlaw’s hometown.

“That [fight card] is happening and Dan will probably be on that card,” White said at the UFC 146 post-fight press conference.

Hardy rebounded from a four-fight losing streak on Saturday night when he floored Ludwig with a left hook and finished him with elbows. The victory salvaged his UFC career and also earned the Brit a cool $70,000 Knockout of the Night bonus.

The Nottingham event is expected to take place on September 29 at the Capital FM Arena. Paul Sass, another Brit who earned a first-round finish on Saturday’s fight card, has also been named as a likely participant in the event.
