A very exciting welterweight matchup has been booked for the UFC 146 card set for Las Vegas.
UFC 146 is set to take place on in May’s UFC 146 event set to take place in Las Vegas Nevada’s MGM Grand Garden Arena. In the main event UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos will attempt to defend his title against Alistair Overeem.
Hardy hasn’t seen much action in the past year and in fact will be coming into this fight after a nine-month layoff from competition. Having previously risen to number-one contender and the first UK fighter to fight for a UFC title, the one-time welterweight-wrecking machine has yet to put another solid win streak together since losing to GSP. He absolutely needs to win this fight in order to keep his employment. We last saw Dan getting submitted by Chris Lytle.
Ludwig is one of the UFC’s most technical strikers however he has continually failed in the grappling realm. As such his two-fight win-streak was halted by the grappling prowess of Josh Neer in his last fight on FX TV. (Continue to page two for the “Editors Breakdown”)
