Dan Hardy vs. Matt Brown in the works for UFC on FOX 7

Quote:
UFC on Fox 7 is filling up fast and the latest addition is a welterweight contest with “Fight of the Night” written all over it.

Hard-hitting Matt Brown, who went 4-0 during 2012, returns to action at UFC on Fox 7 to face British slugger Dan Hardy.

Sources close to the contest confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday with verbal agreements in place for the bout.

Matt Brown had one of the most impressive years of any fighter in the UFC, posting a perfect 4-0 record capped off with a knockout over Mike Swick at UFC on Fox 5 in December.

The former Ultimate Fighter cast member, who now trains at home in Ohio, just recently took over as the lead instructor at Buckeye MMA in Columbus as well.

Facing Brown in April will be former welterweight title contender Dan Hardy, who enters the fight on a two-fight win streak of his own.

Dan Hardy most recently defeated former Ultimate Fighter winner Amir Sadollah at the last UFC event in his home country of England, and now he heads to San Jose for a featured bout at UFC on Fox 7

Brown vs. Hardy, which was first reported by ESPN.com, is expected to be a main card bout on the UFC on Fox 7 show alongside the main event title fight pitting Benson Henderson against Gilbert Melendez, while Daniel Cormier meets Frank Mir in the co-main event.

I approve.

Hardy by TKO, I think he's a better striker and Brown's wrestling game isn't overly impressive to me.

Awesome. Shame it wasn't made for the Fuel card in London, as I'm going, and would have loved to have seen Dan in action Live, but, this'll do. Dan's training like an animal, and is going to put in his most impressive performance inside the Octagon. I like Brown, but he's not going to last the distance with Hardy. Keep that winning streak rolling Dan, and make it 3 on the bounce. War The Outlaw!

I think Hardy should pull off the win but Matt is a scrappy fighter. He has a so so record but man it seems like whenever I sleep on him he gets the win. I thought Doomsday and Swick would best him.

Great fight! Brown's as tough as they come but I think Hardy will get the job done. Either way it ends before the 3 rounds are up.

Come on Hardy, me old son!

Although... in my gut... I can see a Brown submission.
