Dan Hardy On Fighting Nick Diaz: ‘I Would Trade Some Punches With Him’

Dan Hardy remains on the cusp of being let go by the UFC after four consecutive losses inside the Octagon.

Nick Diaz announced his retirement from MMA following a heated defeat at the hands of Carlos Condit.

So, why are we even talking about Hardy and Diaz? Because “The Outlaw” is one of the few that would welcome a possible fight with Diaz, as he told FightHub TV in a recent interview.

I would love to fight him, I’m a huge fan of his. He’s a very entertaining guy and he comes to fight and nobody really does that anymore. I respect that and by all means I would trade some punches with him.

Before Hardy can even think about Diaz, he must first get past Duane Ludwig in May at UFC 146. Lorenzo Fertitta, the CEO of the UFC, granted the Brit another chance because of his willingness to fight, and we’ll need to see that outlaw when he steps inside the Octagon against “Bang.”
