After a long absence from the cage, the time has finally come for Dan Hardy to attempt to avoid his fifth straight loss, which would almost surely lead to his departure from the UFC. Hardy's must-win fight will take place on the preliminary card of UFC 146 against Duane Ludwig.
Having lost three of his past five fights, Ludwig could also use a win on Saturday to get his career back on track. In his most recent appearance in January, Ludwig was choked unconscious by a Josh Neer rear-naked choke.
As we approach a bout that will be crucial for the future of both fighters, let's take a look at whether Hardy or Ludwig have a better chance to get back in the win column on the UFC 146 preliminary card.
