The feud between Dan Hardy and Marcus Davis may have died down in recent months, but with UFC 99 rapidly approaching, expect the war of words to heat back up. Case in point, Hardy’s statements about Davis in a recent interview with WKR.

This is not an act, I called him out on a few things and touched a couple of nerves and now he wont stop whining. I met him before and he seemed like a decent guy, I don’t need any more friends though, I need opponents. I don’t like the fact that he thinks he has some kind of hold over the U.K. I’ll keep poking fun at him to make sure he is training hard, then when I beat him down, he will have no excuses…Not at all, this isn’t boxing and if he was that good as a boxer, he would still be doing it. I think he is underestimating the damage I can do to him. We will see in the fight how long he wants to box for.

With the anticipation of Silva-Franklin, the shake-up of opponents for Cain Velasquez, and the return of Mirko Cro Cop, I honestly forgot about this match-up at UFC 99. Should be a good fight and an awesome card, especially for an overseas event.
