It appears as though Dan Hardy is on his way to mainstream recognition following his impressive victory over Mike Swick during this past weekend’s UFC 105 card in Manchester. Not only did the relentless Brit put himself directly into title contention with the win, it now seems like he is in the running to be one of the two coaches on the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter“.
According to a recent report on the Telegraph.co.uk, Georges St. Pierre could be coaching opposite Hardy on TUF 11, as both men are currently being considered to fill the spots.
If the report is correct, the show would likely help to build their upcoming welterweight title clash at a yet to be determined date.
“I’d fight him [GSP] in Canada, Las Vegas, England, on the moon, or in the car park,” explained Hardy. “I want that belt.
“I have all the skills to cause him a lot of problems, and he is only human. He’s a great athlete very good at winning and putting together a gameplan; but he is not a fighter like me. And I’m going to get in there and my intention is to hurt him, put a beating on him. In a 25 minute fight, it’s a long time to keep my hands off his chin.”
