Last time that "The Outlaw" Dan Hardy was in the cage with a heavy-handed fighter, it was this past March against a returning Anthony "Rumble" Johnson in a bout that was supposed to guarantee an abandoned wrestling game and lots of "getting dropped" being involved.
Instead, it proved to be just another case of a strong Wrestler neutralizing the striking of Hardy and pinning him down for three rounds with a neck crank involved.
Now, Hardy has one last shot for victory, but standing in the way of his victory is a man who was surprisingly overwhelmed by an unorthodox newcomer in his last outing, yet has lost a step when it comes to delivering a show that few will want to forget.
Yes, Brian Ebersole beat him at UFC 127, but "Mr. Fight-Bonus" himself, Chris "Lights Out" Lytle did not lose his reputation of being the guy most fans turn to when they want a Welterweight MMA fight that is guaranteed to deliver nonstop action.
On top of a card that features a dream fight between Jim Miller and Ben "Smooth" Henderson, an expertly mapped-out Fight of the Decade contender-on-paper between Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira, and a promising Muay Thai showcase between Amir Sadollah and Duane "Bang" Ludwig, it will be the automatic Fight of The Decade contender between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle that takes center stage in front of a live-wire crowd in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
