Dan Hardy Says He's Glad to Have His Losing Streak Behind Him
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.28.2012

- Dan Hardy recently spoke about his four-fight losing streak that ended at UFC 146, his fight against Amir Sadollah at UFC on FUEL TV 5 this weekend and more. Check out the highlights:

On relaxing following the breaking of his losing streak at UFC 146: "It was nice. I literally just sat on my own on the sofa and just kind of enjoyed the feeling of relaxation that I'd not had in a couple of years."

On being prepared for being release from the UFC during the losing streak: "And then, when I heard [Zuffa CEO] Lorenzo [Fertitta] was keeping me on, it was like, well, there's still work to be done. And I still feel that way, to be honest...When I found out I was being kept on for another fight it was kind of like, well, that's almost kind of a bummer. But at the same time, I did so much to get to this point. I had 25 fights before I got to the UFC. To go out on a losing streak is just not how I wanted my career to end."

On fighting in England at UFC on FUEL TV 5: "I can't explain it, but I feel like I always fight 10 percent harder for my hometown. I want to show them that I've been working hard and improving while I've been away."

On holding onto the mental baggage from his losing streak: "Even when I was away from the gym, away from MMA, it was constantly hanging over me. You can't get away from it. I was just carrying it for well over a year. Everything's a little bit grayer. Nothing tastes quite as good or is as enjoyable as normal."
