UFC welterweight Dan Hardy is a very honest guy.

After losing his 4th straight fight in the Octagon to Chris Lytle, the Brit was very honest about his quick rise to title contention and then rapid decline in subsequent fights.

“I think I had the quickest rise and quickest fall the UFC’s ever seen,” Hardy said in reference to his 4-4 record inside the Octagon.

Hardy opens up about what went wrong against Lytle, while also expanding on what he needs to do to show the UFC he belongs in the promotion.

Check out comments from Dan ‘The Outlaw’ Hardy following UFC on Versus 5.
