UFC welterweight Dan Hardy seemed like a shoe-in for UFC on Fuel 7 set to land in London, England on Feb 16, but according to the fighter he won’t be ready to compete by then.
Hardy was rumored to possibly face fellow striker Siyar Bahadurzada on the card, but it appears for now the Brit will wait for another show to return to action.
Bahadurzada had approached Hardy about the fight via Twitter, but “The Outlaw” had to shoot down the idea with the following response – “Sorry mate, I won’t be ready to fight in February. Enjoy fighting in London though, the UFC fans are always great.”
Additional sources speaking to MMAWeekly.com had indicated that Hardy’s return would likely be sometime near April 2013, but the fighter hasn’t stated yet when he is likely to get back into the Octagon.
Hardy last competed at UFC on Fuel in his hometown of Nottingham, England in September where he defeated Amir Sadollah by unanimous decision.
