“The Prince of War” Greg Hardy has signed on for his next fight. As he stated in a recent Instagram post, the controversial UFC heavyweight will be back inside the Octagon at UFC 264 on July 10th.

And while he didn’t mention any opponent names, he did drop a hint.

Getting ready for July 10th. It’s on contract signed and the prince is locked and loaded. Bout to drop a couple of the grade American super spiller G bombs on Australia’s favorite son #nobiden

“Australia’s favorite son” would likely be Sydney native Tai Tuvasa. “Bam Bam” has been on a two-fight win streak, with his most recent victory against newcomer Harry Hunsucker two and a half weeks ago. He won the bout via TKO inside 49 seconds.

Hardy, meanwhile, broke a two-fight win streak when he fought number 11-ranked Marcin Tybura in December. He lost the bout via second-round TKO.

Headlining UFC 264 is the trilogy bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. Per UFC president Dana White, the event will likely take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
