According to reports, a pivotal welterweight scrap has been arranged between Dan Hardy and Carlos Condit for a yet-to-be announced UFC 120 event. The October 16th show is rumored to be hosted across the pond in the United Kingdom.
A source close to the situation told MMAWeekly.com on Monday afternoon that bout agreements should be signed and submitted shortly.
Hardy was last seen being dominated by welterweight king Georges St-Pierre at UFC 111 in March. Hardy owns an impressive 23-7 record overall and will have the luxury of bouncing back and gun slinging in his own backyard.
Condit is a former WEC welterweight champion that made his Octagon debut with much hoopla. Although his UFC career got off to a rocky start, he owns an impressive 25-5 record and hung a solid win over a gritty Rory MacDonald at UFC 115.
The New Mexico native has been training with MMA guru Greg Jackson and his talented squad in Albuquerque in hopes of perfecting his game. That would in fact be the same GJ that masterminds Georges St-Pierre’s dominant game plans, so questions will surface if Condit is able to propel himself into title contention talk.
No other bouts have been rumored for the October fight card.
