While training for his bout with UFC on Fuel 5 with Amir Sadollah, Dan Hardy tried working with a new partner. This one brought speed and heart, but did have to ask his mom before he worked out with Hardy.
If you want to know why Hardy has an undying popularity with MMA fans, look at this video. Fans love how he gives his all in the cage, but also that he's incredibly nice to fans outside of it. You can expect a raucous reception when he walks out in Nottingham on Saturday.
