“My plan is to get cleared at the end of the year to fight, but I wanna put myself through a full training camp first, so I know that I’m in good condition and can show the doctors that I’m in condition to fight as well. So I still have plans of getting cleared, I still would like to have a couple of more fights, but I’m taking my time and take it day by day at the moment.”

“There are a lot of good fighters out there, particularly at the moment, it seems to be a wealth of strikers. Difficult to pick, really. Who would I like to fight? Well, people I respect, people that will give me a good fight, a good challenge. Obviously ‚Cowboy’ (Donald Cerrone) is very active at the moment, he’s been looking really good, he’s a great kickboxer, he’s got good ground game, he would be a tough test for me. K.J. Noons, I never particularly vibed with that guy, but he’s an ex-pro boxer and he fancies himself as a better striker, so that’d be a fun fight. Diego Sanchez, he’s injured at the moment, but I know me and him go back and forth. He called me out from time to time.”

UFC welterweight Dan ‘The Outlaw’ Hardy has been away for a long time now, but says his return is approaching. In an interview with Ground And Pound TV, Hardy listed some of the fighters that he would like to fight upon his arrival. Sound good to you?
