Hardy excited for bout with ‘durable’ Sadollah
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.”
