UFC President Dana White confirms that Mike Swick will take on Dan Hardy for the top UFC welterweight contendership spot. The winner will likely get a shot a Georges St. Pierre sometime in 2010.

White told FanHouse that the Swick-Hardy matchup is not yet finalized, but expects to make it official shortly. He made no indication as to which event will host the bout, but UFC 105 seems like the logical choice as both Hardy and Swick have recently spent time in training camps.

    Swick Vs Hardy would be very explosive. Im a fan of Hardy but dont think he would beat Swick. Swick is just too good at this time.

    Hardy has confirmed the bout in the UK press today. I disagree Ross, I think Hardy has too much for swick! Hardy's chin is like granite!

    That fight meaning if he beats Swick (which he won't) and has to face St. Pierre.

    tom…that's why i wondered if Hardy would finally come to the U.S. since he always fights in their England events.

    Are they going to actually make Hardy come to the U.S. for that fight? Seems like he only fights in their UFC-England events.
