Dan Hardy interested in fight with Matt Brown, dismissive of Matt Riddle

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Dan Hardy told fans at a Q&A in Australia that he'd be interested in a UFC fight with Matt Brown in March or April.

With his violent knockout win of Mike Swick at UFC on Fox 5, Matt Brown is riding a career best four fight win streak in the UFC. With Swick being the biggest win of Brown's career "The Immortal" has his eyes set on even bigger game in former title challenger Dan Hardy.

Hardy, for his part, seems to be interested in the fight as well when talking to fans at a Q&A in Australia.

Via MMA Junkie:

f"I've been very impressed with him as of late," Hardy said. "He had a good run in 2012. Me and 'The Immortal' – we'll test that theory."

...

"The Immortal vs The Outlaw?" Brown wrote earlier this week. "Apparently this is the fight the fans want. You down for Japan."

Brown was referring to UFC on FUEL TV 8, which takes place March 2 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Hardy is on a two fight win streak of his own, this coming after a four fight losing streak that seemed to have him on the verge of being cut from the UFC.

Hardy also discussed a minor beef with Matt Riddle:

"He's just a big, loud, annoying kid," he said. "And the problem is if I'm training for somebody, I'm spending three months dedicated to that person, and that would be three months of my life I wouldn't enjoy.

"I saw him at the gym. He showed up at Robert Drysdale's, which is where I train in Las Vegas a lot of the time. And he said, 'Look, if you want to go, I've got a piece for you.' And he was like, 'I'm just trying to make a name for myself.' And then he called me out again, so I'm going to hit him with a bar of soap and a sock or something."

Brian Ebersole was in attendance and offered to "take care" of Riddle for Dan.
