Hardy vs. Lytle booked to headline UFC on Versus 5 event in Milwaukee

by ESPN Staff | source: espn.co.uk

With so much riding on the bout, it was widely expected that Hardy would appear on the UK card, expected for October this year. However, the UFC has confirmed to ESPN that Hardy is heading for UFC Live in Milwaukee, where he will headline the card against Lytle on August 14.

UFC president Dana White said: "This is a great fight - two of the most exciting fighters in the welterweight division who've both got a lot on the line. Hardy has a fan friendly style and is looking forward to an all-out war. He actually asked Lytle for this fight because he wants to take on a guy who is known for having absolute wars.

"This is another very dangerous fight for Dan. Lytle has won the Fight of the Night bonus a record five times. He's also won KO of the Night and Submission of the Night twice, more bonuses than any fighter in the UFC.

Should be an interesting and meaningless fight.

It won't happen, but if Hardy loses, they should drop him!

Dan Ardy has a way better ground game than many here are giving him credit. His wrestling may need work but there's nothing wrong with his sub game. He has also demonstrated pretty crazy shoulder flexibility.

Really hope Lytle exploits Dan's ground game and makes Zuffa look stupid for putting British Kimbo in the main event.

Actually I believe Lytle is a Marcello Montiero Black Belt. I've seen compete in Indiana grappling events and do quite well against larger black belts. Lytle by sub

Anderson, Nate Diaz, and Lytle are all the top 3 most bonus winners i believe.

Potential fireworks However, if both decide to use their ground game, Lytle has the edge I think, heard he's a purple belt.  What level is Hardy with his Jits?
