Dan Hardy, the ever patriot, weighed in at the UFC 146 weigh-ins donning his new exclusive Union Jack Smuggling Duds boxer shorts. Dan went on to win KO of the night, beating game striker Duane Ludwig in the first round with a perfectly timed left hook at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas!
It’s the second time The Outlaw has worn his favourite Smuggling Duds boxer shorts for a weigh-in, the first being his infamous Shaolin Weigh-in against Chris Lytle where he throw boxer shorts to the crowd like ninja stars!
You can also expect to see Dan wearing more Smuggling Duds when he heads back to the UK to face off against TUF winner Amir Sadollah in his hometown of Nottingham at UFC On Fuel 5 on September 29th!

By now, a lot of you have already seen this, but I haven’t really had a chance to talk about it since my fight.
Director, Ian McFarland (http://mcfarlandandpecci.com/) is a personal friend of mine. And even before I met him, I was listening to his band, Blood for Blood. A lot of you have seen the tattoos on the sides of my legs, which is their logo. Their music is always part of my training camp playlist motivation.
Ian has an amazing knack for capturing, on film, the truth behind a person, their motivation, and their reason for existence. We spent many hours just having frank conversations about what drives a fighter and the emotions involved in the fight game. Nobody likes to lose a fight, but someone has to. That person has been me for four fights. This documentary is a reflection of a fighter who was feeling the pressure of that.
At the end of the night, when your fans are smiling and your hand is raised in that cage, it’s all worth it. And that is how I felt this past Saturday. Thank you to the fans and to Ian for being a part of my life this year. I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Dan has recently been recognized by animal welfare organizations, for both his courageous stance against recreational hunting and his fostering of homeless cats. The East Lake Pet Orphanage in Dallas, Texas has named Dan the recipient of it’s annual “Kramer Award”, given in outstanding recognition for animal welfare activism. He will be receiving the award on May 5th, 2012. The award, and others, will be given at East Lake’s 10th Annual “Wine on the Roof” Soirée with food, prizes, a silent auction, and more!
Please visit East Lake Pet Orphanage’s website for more information: http://www.elpo.org
From the Outlaw:
I am honored to be receiving such an award. I know that many people right now are deserving of such an award, even some other UFC fighters. America is in economic hard times, and unfortunately, pets that were once family members are becoming luxury items that people can do without. Spaying and neutering pets has also dropped on the priority list for a lot of families, which is just adding the problem. We have rescued a few “recession” cats over the past few years. Some were malnourished, and some badly injured. We took them in, fixed them up, and found them homes through friends and social media. I would love to have pets myself; however, my job demands I travel so much, that it wouldn’t be fair to an animal. So right now, I am in the process of being an approved foster home for sick cats and young kittens that need socialization. That way, I can at least have pets on an interim basis, while helping the shelters to get them adopted.
East Lake Pet Orphanage is just one of the many shelters across the country that need your help! Although I’m not from Dallas, it doesn’t make the animals there any less important. They still need homes and your help.
