Nottingham’s most famous MMA fighter will return to his hometown, meeting Sadollah at UFC On Fuel 5.
Author: Jay Furness
Nottingham native Dan Hardy (24-10) will return to action in September following his explosive win over Duane “Bang” Ludwig last time out.
Hardy, much in need of the win following four consecutive losses, used his patented left hook to dispatch fellow striker Ludwig in the first round. Now he looks to return closer to home and will be a big draw in his hometown.
MMA Fighting first stated that he will meet Amir Sadollah (6-3) in a bout which many were predicting before the news broke, and now YourMMA.tv have received confirmation of the bout.
Sadollah, primarily a striker himself, comes in off a decision win over Jorge Lopez. The TUF winner was successful at UFC On Fuel 3, and will have a big task ahead of him against the hard-hitting Brit, especially when he’s backed by a fervent UK crowd.
Since winning The Ultimate Fighter Sadollah has had nine professional fights, with five of his six wins coming via decision.
This adds to the growing main card which will be headlined by Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic.
The UFC On Fuel 5 fight card on September 29th so far looks like this:
Stipe Miocic vs. Stefan Struve
Dan Hardy vs. Amir Sadollah
Brad Pickett vs. Yves Jabouin
Paul Sass vs. Matt Wiman
Che Mills vs. Duane Ludwig
Andy Ogle vs. Akira Corassani
