Matt Brown vs. Dan Hardy Added to UFC on Fox 7

Matt BrownA welterweight tilt sure to deliver fireworks has been added to the UFC’s April 20 Fox offering as Matt Brown and Dan Hardy have been slated to square off in San Jose, California. 

Brown (16-11) has been surging as of late. The TUF veteran has seemed to hit a career renaissance that has seen him take home four consecutive wins. “The Immortal” most recently capped wins over Chris Cope, Stephen Thompson, and Luis Ramos with a brutal knockout over Mike Swick at UFC on Fox 5 in December.

Hardy (25-10) comes into the bout  with back-to-back victories. The former title challenger most recently outpointed Amir Sadollah in front of his home crowd in Nottingham, a win which came on the heels of a knockout victory over Duane Ludwig at UFC 146.

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto first reported the news. UFC on Fox 7 is headlined by a lightweight title unification bout that pits Benson Henderson against Strikeforce titleholder Gilbert Melendez.
