Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE
It appears the biggest UK star available to fight at UFC on Fuel 7 in London isn't all that available after all. The card, which takes place on February 16th in Wembley Arena, was expected to host a Dan Hardy fight. There were rumors that Hardy could face hard-hitting Siyar Bahadurzada on the card and when Siyar asked Hardy about it on twitter, The Outlaw's answer put a bit of a damper on things:
UFC on Fuel 7 tickets go on sale this week despite no fights being announced for the card as of yet. With Michael Bisping fighting in January and Hardy seemingly off the card, it's going to be a struggle to find local draws to sell tickets. John Hathaway is expected to compete, and I'm sure Tom Watson and Che Mills will probably be there as well, but who else from the UK can actually bring fans into the arena? We'll have to wait and see, but unless they put a bunch of big fights on a Fuel card, this event might do so well at the gate.
