Hardy is off to battle - Telegraph

The grimace set into the welterweight’s face shows the agony he is putting himself through as he punches the air for 30 seconds while holding two dumb bells. He punches outwards, then upwards.

The training camp Hardy has put himself through for his 30th mixed martial arts fight has been four weeks longer than normal. For good reason. He is about to break the mould, and create history, as the first British mixed martial artist to fight for a title in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, the world’s leading MMA organisation.
