Hardy doesn't want to fight Riddle, he wants Koscheck.

Dan Hardy Not Interested in Matt Riddle Fight, but Josh Koscheck… That’s Another Story

Matt Riddle, who just fought and won at Saturday night’s UFC 154 in Montreal, has made no secret of whom he wants to fight next… Dan Hardy. Riddle, after each of his two most recent bouts, has pleaded for a fight with the British bomber.

His pleas, however, have been met with little enthusiasm from Hardy.

“I’m not a matchmaker and that’s not my job, but if I was to pick an opponent, (a fight with Riddle) wouldn’t even come into my head, to be honest,” Hardy told Fuel TV recently.

“I don’t like looking at the guy, so obviously training for him for eight weeks would be tiring,” he quipped.

Hardy wasn’t quite sure why Riddle was even calling him out, other than perhaps he’s thinking that he could make a name off of fighting and defeating a fighter like Hardy.

On the flip side, however, Hardy isn’t really sure when he’ll be setting foot back in the Octagon just yet.

He was recently in Montreal to help Georges St-Pierre train for his UFC 154 main event victory over Carlos Condit. Hardy intends to keep his base in Las Vegas, but will likely be training more with GSP and the Tri-Star Gym in Montreal, as well, for future fights.

Hardy isn’t really one to call out fighters, and doesn’t have a target painted on anyone, but pressed for his thoughts, he did have one man in mind that would make for a good match-up and a good promotional scenario.

“There’s a lot of talent in the division, so many good guys coming up, and obviously, guys that have been at the top that aren’t maybe right near the top at the moment,” said Hardy. “I’m open. There’s a lot of good fighters, a lot fun fights.

“Maybe Koscheck on The Ultimate Fighter… if I had to choose.”

Considering neither Hardy nor Koscheck is in line for an immediate title shot, it is a fight that would make sense, and with two fighters of such “character,” they’d surely make for tremendous made-for-TV fireworks as TUF coaches.

Is Dan Hardy vs. Josh Koscheck a scenario that you’d like to see happen?

Riddle vs Hardy would be one hell of a fight. Koscheck vs Hardy? Meh...Koscheck smashes him.

Interesting that Hardy is training with GSP and MacDonald now.

Hardy would spend 15 minutes on his back if he fought Kos.

I think he beats Riddle easily though.

Hardy is still not in the "choosing his opponents" boat yet. Riddle would be a good win for him if he could pull it off. Kos smashes him so hard he would be looking at that cut line again.

I like Hardy, but yeah, Koscheck is above him right now. Prove you worked on your wrestling and get a couple wins.

Hmmm, not the best idea calling out Kos. I dont see how in any way he could beat Kos. I hoping training with GSP doesn't make Hardy think he is suddenly a ground wizard. Seriously though, didn't know he was training at Tri-Star. Fair play to him, coaching is just not even close to being the same quality here in England.

Hardy vs Anthony Johnson is what comes to mind when I think of this fight.

Riddle a bunch a swings and misses. Hardy one good shot and Riddle out. Sounds like a horrible match up...

Yup, assuming Koscheck remembers he's a great wrestler and uses his wrestling skills in the fight. Problem is Kos has brainfarts every few matches and decides to test his "new & improved" standup instead of using his wrestling to score an easy if boring win.

I think UFC should make Riddle vs John Hathaway since Riddle has such a problem with Brits. Hathaway will smash him and I'd love to see it.
