Two of the heaviest handed fighters and going to get exactly what they want, an opponent that is going to stand and trade in the center of the octagon. The UFC announced that “The Outlaw” Dan Hardy will be facing Duane “Bang” Ludwig at UFC 146 on May 26th.
Ludwig is coming off of a first round submission (guillotine choke) loss to Josh Neer at UFC on FX 1. Hardy is coming into this fight with everything to lose, he is on a four fight losing streak and one more will most likely get him booted from the promotion. He can expect that Ludwig will be head hunting to send him out with a bang.
UFC 146 in be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 26, 2012. The main event of that card is expected to be a huge UFC heavyweight title match-up between current champ Junior Dos Santos and former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem.
