Jordan Mein steps in for injured Dan Hardy, faces Matt Brown at UFC on FOX 7 | UFC News

An injury has forced Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy (25-10 MMA, 6-4 UFC) to pull out of his scheduled bout with Matt Brown (16-11 MMA, 6-5 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7 next month. Stepping in to fill the void will be Canadian welterweight Jordan “Young Gun” Mein (27-8 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who makes a quick return to action, fresh off his UFC debut win over Dan Miller at UFC 158.

Joradn Mein looked impressive in his octagon debut, which took place less than a week ago at UFC 158 in Montreal, where the 23-year-old defeated veteran Dan Miller with a first-round TKO. The Canadian has now won 3 straight fights and 9 of his past 10 overall. “Young Gun’s” one set back came at the hands of Tyron Woodley, whom he lost to by split-decision while under the Strikeforce banner.

Matt “The Immortal” Brown last entered the octagon in December at UFC on FOX 5, where he starched Mike Swick with a second-round knockout. Prior to that, Brown TKO’d Luis Ramos and scored a decision win over Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Brown has won four straight fights and 5 of his past 6 overall, this after dropping 3 straight contests in 2010.

UFC on FOX 7 takes place April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The main card will air live on FOX following the prelims on FX and Facebook. The event is headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and final Strikeforce champ Gilbert Melendez. The card also features a heavyweight bout between former UFC champ Frank Mir and Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix winner Daniel Cormier.

  1. GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

    Hardy pulled a Guida and ran for the hills. Matt Brown would have laid waste to Hardy and he knew it.
    I’m s tired fo these cowards using the injury excuse to get out of bad matchups. I mean whats a doctor going to tell teh fighter? You don’t hurt nothings wrong with you. Even if they suspect they are ful of sh’t there is nothing they can do or say different. Fitch did the exact same thing to get out of fighting Aaron Simpson last summer. Bisping faked an injury after Stann backed out of fighting LOmbard and Bisping was the logical choice to replace him because he was training for a fight with Boetsch on same card. Bisping backed out less than 12 hours after Stann announced he tore hsi shoulder. Getting real old everything shuffeling around for best matchups

    • Kane says:

      Do you research before typing, Hardy wasn’t cleared to fight by the CSAC due to Wolff-Parkinson-White Heart Disease.

    • allmightysandman says:

      this is a great fight! a huge step up for Mein, but i think he’s ready and will beat Brown.
