Dan Hardy Has Interest In Josh Koscheck Bout

If Nick Diaz isn’t available for Josh Koscheck, there is another welterweight out there willing to take on “Kos.”

Dan Hardy, fresh off a pair of contract-saving wins, said he would be down for a potential match with Koscheck if the UFC wants it.

Recently, Hardy has been called out by Matt Riddle, but that fight has no interest to “The Outlaw,” as he told Fuel TV.

“I’m not a matchmaker and that’s not my job, but if I was to pick an opponent, (Riddle) wouldn’t even come into my head to be honest. I don’t like looking at the guy, so obviously training for him for eight weeks would be tiring.”

Instead, Hardy proposed a potential coaching spot on The Ultimate Fighter opposite Koscheck. While that is unlikely to happen, the two could be paired up in a potential match.

Hardy (25-10) has defeated Amir Sadollah and Duane Ludwig to remain in the UFC following a four-fight losing skid.
