Dan Hardy Starting To Ponder Retirement Question

Former UFC welterweight contender Dan Hardy saved his UFC career when he snapped a four-fight losing streak in 2012.

And, now that he has claimed back-to-back victories, Hardy appears on the rise once again at 170 pounds.

Hardy, though, doesn’t see himself competing much longer, as the 30-year-old recently discussed retirement with “The Outlaw” is expected to meet Matt Brown in April at UFC on FOX 7.

“Martial arts for me has always been a tool to understand myself a little more, and it’s getting to the stage where it’s run its course,” Hardy said. “The structure the sport has taken on is taking away from that for me, and I think I’m best served to be somewhere else in the future.”

Hardy declined to say for sure how much longer he has in him to compete, but added, “I’m ready for a new challenge. I’ll be honest, there are a lot of things about this sport that I love, and a lot of things about this sport that I don’t like at all.”

The Brit has had several Twitter run-ins with new UFC executive Matt Hughes, who will be working closely with the active roster going forward.
