UFC 105: Hardy vs. Swick

Event Date: Nov 14, 2009    |    Starts: 3:00 PM / Ends: 9:00 PM
Location: Manchester, England

Welterweights Dan Hardy and Mike Swick are to face off at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14. Swick was added to the card this past week when Don Hyun Kim, Hardy’s previously slated opponent, voiced a knee injury.

Hardy is coming off perhaps the biggest win of his career — a razor thin split decision over Marcus Davis at UFC 99: “The Comeback” in June 2009. It was a super close call and one that had most mixed martial arts fans divided right down the middle.

Nonetheless, it was the third straight win for “The Outlaw” inside the Octagon and his sixth since a disqualification loss to Yoshiyuki Yoshida in late 2007. In fact, Hardy has won 11 of his last 12 fights, including a devastating first round knockout of Rory Markham and a split decision win over the venerable veteran Akihiro Gono.

Hardy faces the once middleweight, now welterweight, talent of Mike “Quick” Swick who’s recent record includes wins over: Josh Burkman, Marcus Davis, Jonathan Goulet, and Ben Saunders, and the last two finishing by strong KO’s. With two such impressive strikers, this fight is sure to be an explosive fight on the card this night in Manchester, England.
