Dan Hardy Thinks Diego Sanchez Would Make Good Return Bout

ufc fight night 42

Dan Hardy watched in shock as the judges ruled in the favor of Diego Sanchez Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 42 over Ross Pearson. The Brit had his fellow countrymen’s back on Twitter, even mentioning a return to action against Sanchez.

“That was a terrible, terrible decision,” Hardy wrote. “I’d love to fight Sanchez (with the hashtag Perfect Comeback Fight included.”

Hardy (25-10) has put his career on hold after finding out he has a rare disorder. He earned two wins in 2012 over Amir Sadollah and Duane Ludwig after losing four straight from 2010-11. That included a decision loss to Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title.

“The Outlaw,” who works as a color commentator for UFC Fight Pass events, stated that he can “get close” to making lightweight’s 155-pound limit and that he’d “like a couple more” bouts when asked about competing again.

During a physical for his fight with Matt Brown last year, Hardy was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which affects the heart. He has declined treatment to fix the issue.

    Even if he gets close enough for a catchweight, I don’t think any Commission will license him due to his wolff-parkinson-white syndrome, that’s why he was forced into early retirement as it was.

    yeah i don’t think he’s fully accepted that he’ll never fight again, at least not in the US and likely not in the UFC. I feel for the guy
