Hardy Victorious Against Swick @ UFC 105

Posted in News by Dan |

Another rainy night in Manchester, England has produced another UK champion: Dan “the Outlaw” Hardy.

The 27 year-old Nottingham native entered the ring on Saturday night with one thing on his mind: Mike “Quick” Swick. Relatively evenly matched, these two strikers were battling it out to move on for a possible belt contention, yet to be officially announced.

Hardy surprised international fans, dominating the fight, and walking straight through the once powerful striking attempts of Swick. Swick’s strikes seemed to have little effect on a powerful and focused Hardy who returned lethal counters rocking his opponent time and time again. The third round saw some ground and pound action with a sharp elbow from Hardy which produced a gash on the back of Swick’s head, shaking him for the rest of the fight. Unanimous decision was awarded to Hardy, making him victorious against another opponent thought to be more skilled by the MMA world.

Hardy and his team, Rough House, had a fruitful night with wins by teammates Ross Pearson, Andre Winner, and Nick Osipczak.
