Speaking to reporters, including MMA Junkie, on Yas Island ahead of UFC on ESPN+ 37, Hardy was asked whether seeing Condit again brought back any memories of their past meeting, and whether he’d be interested in stepping back into the cage to face “The Natural Born Killer” in a rematch, some 10 years removed from their first encounter.

“Yeah, absolutely I would, of course,” he grinned. “It’s the only time I’ve ever been stopped with strikes in a fight. As a striker, that was rather embarrassing. I laughed at it at the time, but of course, you look back and I’m like, ‘That was stupid of me!’ I learned so many lessons in that fight.

“When you come off a fight against a world champion – and I didn’t do well against (Georges St-Pierre), but I got to 25 minutes – and I spent the next four or five months traveling around the U.S. and everyone was going, ‘Ah! A little bit of takedown defense and you’ll be fine!’ So then I’m looking at everybody else in the division, especially Condit as a striker, and I’m thinking, ‘Well, you’re not ‘GSP,’ so you’re not going to take me down. What have you got to offer me?’ And I had complete disregard for his striking power, which was my mistake.”

a man holding a baseball bat: has taken the UFC world by storm, and if he keeps going at this rate, the sky is the limit.  Chimaev made his UFC debut in July, picking up two wins in two different weight classes in just 10 days. His dominant style has drawn comparisons to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, but it's his activity and willingness to compete that has won fans over.  The undefeated prospect is unintentionally funny, answering the majority of questions with the same response of just wanting to smash somebody. Chimaev is already double booked, scheduled to face Gerald Meerschaert on Sept. 19, and if he gets past Meerschaert, he will draw a massive opportunity in former two-time UFC title challenger Demian Maia.  If Chimaev prevails in these two matchups, it will be an unparalleled rise. And if his popularity hasn't skyrocketed enough, we could be looking at a future star.

Hardy and Condit were both rising stars of the UFC welterweight division when they met in the co-main event of UFC 120 in London, England back in October 2010. In a matchup that saw both men go toe to toe in a striking-heavy matchup, Condit spectacularly knocked out Hardy when both men connected with left hooks at almost the same time. Condit’s shot landed marginally faster, and significantly harder, as he flattened Hardy, who admits that he looks back at the fight as a learning moment for his career.

“You can watch that fight, I stepped in three times and threw the same left hook,” he recalled. “I caught him a little earlier in the fight, and I saw his eyes spin one time and thought, ‘Yeah. I’ve got his number. I’ve got his range now,’ and I got too eager to chase after it. He set me up perfectly. You watch his strikes, he mixes them up really nicely, and he caught me clean on a counter. I still hear about it from my coach – he still pokes fun at me and laughs about it.”

After defeating Hardy in London in 2010, Condit went on to capture the interim UFC welterweight title before pushing St-Pierre to the scorecards in a losing effort at UFC 154 in November 2012. However, since that defeat, Condit has won just three times in 10 fights, with his win over McGee halting a five-fight skid.

Hardy said he was encouraged to see Condit’s performance in Abu Dhabi, and paid tribute to a fighter who he holds in the highest regard as he said he’d love the opportunity to face off with his old adversary one more time to see if he could even the score from their showdown at The O2 Arena a decade ago.

“Of course, he looked great the other night, and that’s really what I wanted to see from him, because I do genuinely believe he’s up there with the Nick Diaz and (Jorge) Masvidal kind of guys in this division,” he said. “He’s a lethal individual – he’s ‘The Natural Born Killer.’ He’s a great striker, he’s very unorthodox, he’s back in a place – psychologically as well as physically – where he looks like he can have some good fights. And who would not want payback for the only person who knocked him out? Absolutely!”
