Hardy excited for bout with 'durable' Sadollah

source: sherdog.com
 

Hardy may have saved himself just in time, though. After beating Ludwig, the UFC matched Hardy against Amir Sadollah at UFC on Fuel TV 5, which is scheduled for Sept. 29 in Nottingham, England. Now Hardy has a chance to start another win streak in his hometown.

“He’s very, very durable,” Hardy said of Sadollah. “He’s fairly well rounded. He’s got good striking. He’s got good jiu-jitsu as well. I think it’s going to be a fun fight. I know he’s going to come and try to win, which I respect that. Like I said, I always want somebody that wants to come in there and beat me up because it makes my job easier as well. I’m excited. It’s the perfect fight for Nottingham as well because I know he’s going to be there to fight. He’s going to be durable to give the fans value for their money and I’m excited. He’s pretty much a mirror image of me from a few years ago, with slightly better jiu-jitsu maybe.”

Yeah because Baroni gassed super quickly. It was more of a dominant performance by Amir.

To be fair, Amir was not the one who made his last fight boring. He was trying to strike with the guy and actually fight him, not push him up against the fence and constantly go for the high-crotch takedown. Amir even tried to lock in a risky guillotine just in an attempt to finish. His opponent (can't remember his name, Lopez or something like that) was the one who made that fight boring.I like Amir, but I'm a bigger fan of Hardy's. I just want this fight to be exciting, I will not be to bothered who wins.

I really hope Hardy can put Sadollah down. I liked him when he was on TUF but he has evolved into an incredibly boring fighter to watch.

"I know he’s going to come and try to win, which I respect that. Like I said, I always want somebody that wants to come in there and beat me up because it makes my job easier as well."He meant that Sadollah is going to actually fight him, not try to LnP or play a points game standing.
