Dan Hardy throwing down with newest Roughouse member

by Brandon Stroud | source: uproxx.com

While training for his bout with UFC on Fuel 5 with Amir Sadollah, Dan Hardy tried working with a new partner. This one brought speed and heart, but did have to ask his mom before he worked out with Hardy.

Ordinarily, media exposure to kids MMA has tended towards Armenian businessmen organizing child shootfights in bars. That may have all changed thanks to this video of Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy waving a kid over and letting him throw knee strikes at pads and punch him in the face. It is adorable.

I’m glad someone finally found the right way to introduce mixed martial arts to children: introduce it as a fun, healthy activity they can get into now and be great at when they grow up. That seems a lot better than “put a kid in flame shorts and let him punch a crying baby while we laugh and smoke cigars."

You’re pretty awesome, Dan Hardy.

Good thing Dan's knees were on the mat. That looks like a possible oblique kick...which everyone knows can cause instant death. Kid's been training with Anderson and Bones and is a dirty fighter.

I thought he was going to crawl on his knees towards a zebra, staring at the majestic anus, only to get kicked in the face.

Hardy training with Team Alpha Male might pay off.
