    I like it. Not sure why Dan believed he has the following to sell out an arena in London these days and I’m a UK fan but I do like this fight a lot.

    I’m a big Matt Brown fan and I think he’d get a nice little win on his record here to break his losing streak right now.

    I'm looking at hardy fighting the same way I look at jones to heavyweight, been chirping about it so long that I'm quickly losing interest. I'll believe it when I see it but I do like this fight for both guys.

    If the card has a few other good fights on it, and/or Darren Till, it will be fire... Wonder who the other name is.

    Main Event it should not be though.

    Once crowds are allowed again in the UK any UFC event in london will sell out.

    ...but I don't see where hardy says that it will sell out?

    I feel like Hardy is dramatically overestimating his fame.

    It is like australia, any ufc event sells out because there are so few of them.

    Hardy seems delusional about his return. He's been teasing it for years, even bringing it up while commentating fights without being asked. I don't see where he said he would sell out in London but he has no chance. And does that mean he thinks he will be main event? o_O

    He didn't say he would sell out London... He said "It would raise the roof" which it would... No indication he thinks it should be the main event... And if he's formally given the UFC a message of who he want's, then you can take his word for it, or call him a liar with 0 evidence.

    Weird thread title then eh?

    I don't see Hardy raising the roof in any UK venue unless it's a bingo hall in his home town to be completely honest.

    And I beleive him when he says he's sent two fighters he wants over to the UFC, I never said any different.

    It is!

    Nah he's weirdly popular, he always had shit loads of fans in his fights backing him even in the US.. He'd probably do better in London than in Nottingham(The City he's from).
    See video for "Legion of Fans" quote haha..



    Fair, I thought you were suggesting him teasing it for years means this could be bullshit.

    I think that is very risky. Hardy is a complete unknown currently who was near top of the division when he medically retired. He looks in pretty good shape and was a KO artist which means he has a shot IMO. While I think Matt being fav makes sense it certainly isn't a done deal.

    Since Dan retired, Matt Brown has fought 15 times, and lost 7 of those times, 4 by finish... Whilst Dan has been meditating and doing Yoga lol.
    It will certainly be interesting, impossible to call, but i'd favour Matt also.

    Please JBG. Just gift us with a stupid red mohawk face planting on the canvas and a hairy viscous animal standing atop, double checking to make sure his elbow isn't broken.

    and the losses have definitely piled up towards the end. In his last couple his looked like a shadow of former self and that the mileage from so many wars has caught up to him. Hardy on the other hand doesn't have the mileage on him that most fighters his age have.

    I like to bet but I won't be betting on this one unless one of them massive fav (then I will bet on the underdog).
