Dan Hardy: “I can become a world champion within 12 months”

Former number one contender for Georges St-Pierre’s welterweight title, Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy speaks about the lesson learned at UFC 111, admitting he knows the changes that are needed, and he “will become a world champion within 12 months”.

Hardy, speaking via The Daily Record, said:

“I know I can become a world champion within 12 months. The thing about UFC is that, unlike boxing, a defeat doesn’t put you right down at the end of the queue. This sport has many examples of fighters losing a number of bouts and then challenging for, and winning, a world title. My contest against GSP has tought me a lot and I will utilize all of the lessons I have learnt to make me an even better fighter. There are certain aspects of my game that I can change for the better. I can now go straight back into the gym and do my best to learn lessons from that latest fight of mine.”
