Former UFC title challenger Dan Hardy is interested in a potential future fight with Donald Cerrone — this and much more on Friday's social media roundup.
Dan Hardy interested in a fight against Donald Cerrone
Former UFC welterweight title, challenger now UFC commentator and analyst Dan Hardy is interested in the possibility of a fight with fellow UFC veteran Donald Cerrone in the future. Hardy has not fought since 2012 where he picked up a win over Amir Sadollah in his hometown of Nottingham, England.
Hardy showed interest in the bout on Twitter when he reacted to Luke Thomas's tweet when he suggested that Hardy's opponent if he were to come back should be against Donald Cerrone. Hardy also included a pretty bizarre but Diego Sanchez-like prediction in how he thinks the fight between Cerrone and Sanchez will go down.
If Hardy was to fight again it would be special for Hardy as he had his career wrongly taken away from him by a doctor who diagnosed him with a non-existent heart condition.
Would you be interested in a fight between Hardy and Cerrone?
