Dan Hardy UFCDan Hardy is out of his UFC on Fox 7 bout with Matt Brown.

The UFC matchmaking team moved swiftly to line up a replacement. Jordan Mein has already agreed to step in and take Hardy’s place on April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

UFC officials announced Hardy’s injury and his replacement late Thursday night.

Mein (27-8) is making a quick turn, having just defeated Dan Miller at UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz this past weekend. It is no wonder the 23-year-old fighter already has 35 bouts to his credit so early in his career.

The win over Miller marked Mein’s Octagon debut, and agreeing to such a quick return with Hardy falling off the card will surely endear him to his bosses.

Riding a three-fight winning streak, Mein faces no easy task in Brown.

While Mein has more professional bouts to his credit, Brown (16-11) has fought the last half of his career fighting under the white-hot lights of the UFC. He’s used to the pressures of fighting on the MMA world’s largest stage, riding a streak of four consecutive victories into the fight.

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson squares off with Strikeforce titleholder Gilbert Melendez in the UFC on Fox 7 main event.
