Hardy: Fertitta is very keen on me getting cleared

by Chris Palmquist |

Dan Hardy talks to the UG's Jonathan Shrager on a number of topics, including how he's relishing his role as the UFC's color commentator for EMEA, an update on his health and realistic timeframes for returning to the Octagon, the adversaries that appeal to him for a comeback fight, how the hiatus will impact his fighting style, his desire to witness friend and former teammate Paul Daley back in the Octagon.

Hardy also discusses his future aspirations to run his own gym underpinned by a more scientific ethos, his thoughts on Conor McGregor and the "dangerous" fight versus Diego Brandao, the necessity for the UFC to adopt a more gradual policy when matching "The Notorious One," how he'd hypothetically approach the GSP title fight differently in 2014, and finally his breakdown of the forthcoming Jones-Gustafsson rematch.

Hardy shouldn't have to worry about his future too much. He's been pretty great on the UK cards as commentator.
