In a non UFC vs. Strikeforce encounter, welterweights Dan Hardy and Matt Brown will meet at UFC on Fox 7. The card takes place April 20 from San Jose’s HP Pavilion.
Two fights pitting former Strikeforce fighters against UFC ones were announced recently. UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson defends his title against Gilbert Melendez, and Frank Mir welcomes Daniel Cormier to the Octagon.
Hardy (25-10) has posted two consecutive wins since a four-fight losing skid at him on the cusp of being released. “The Outlaw” defeated Amir Sadollah in his last fight.
Brown (16-11) had one of the more incredible years, going 4-0. He earned a marquee victory over Mike Swick to complete the run.
