Dan Hardy Says He's Close To Retirement
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.09.2013



In an interview with MMA Junkie, welterweight Dan Hardy (25-10 MMA, 6-4 UFC) says he plans to retire next year if everything goes as he wants. He is currently preparing to fight Matt Brown (16-11 MMA, 9-4 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7. The show takes place April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Here are highlights:

On why he would retire: "I'm ready for a new challenge, I'll be honest. There are a lot of things about this sport that I love, and a lot of things about this sport that I don't like at all."

On going after gold: "As of right now, I just need to embrace that instinctual inner-reptile and have a run at the belt again. I'm excited about this year because my potential is sky-high, and it's completely open for me to do whatever I like with it. I'm very determined to make this a big year for me and step away from the top of the sport and do something else for a while."

On continuing his training: "I'll never be away from the gym for too long. I couldn't walk away from it entirely. I just think there's a time to review where you're at and see what you want to do with the rest of your life, and I think in that two years when I was losing, I had a lot of time to do that, and I made plans for the future that I was excited about. Now, I've got a second chance at my UFC career, and I'm going to run at it and see what happens after it."
