- Hardy’s desire for another go-around came after Condit’s most victory over fellow veteran Court McGee on Saturday, which snapped a five-fight skid. He also wants to avenge the lone KO loss on his record, which was courtesy of Condit.
- The 38-year-old Hardy hasn’t fought since 2012. A year later, he was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, a heart disorder. Throughout his hiatus, he’s served as a color commentator for the UFC’s Europe shows.
- For his part, Condit wants his own rematch against fan-favorite Nick Diaz. Their first fight happened in 2012, with Condit winning by unanimous decision.
