Controversial heavyweight Greg Hardy has received his next UFC assignment.
UFC officials today announced that Hardy (5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will face Germany’s Jarjis Danho (5-1-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC) at UFC on ESPN+ 20, which takes place Oct. 26 at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Featuring a headlining bout between Demian Maia and Ben Askren, UFC on ESPN+ 20 streams on ESPN+.
Hardy saw action most recently in July, needing just 45 seconds to dispatch of fellow Dana White’s Contender Series alum Juan Adams. The result was Hardy’s second consecutive first-round knockout following a disappointing disqualification loss in his UFC debut.
He now faces Danho, who seeks his first UFC win in his third trip to the cage. “Man Mountain” fought twice in 2016, suffering a debut loss to Daniel Omielanczuk and then battling to a draw later that year with Christian Colombo.
Meanwhile, Camacho looks to build on the strength of a June win over Nick Hein, a result that saw “The Crank” snap a two-fight losing streak. He faces Dariush, who has earned back-to-back wins over Drew Dober and Thiago Moises.
With the additions to the card, UFC on ESPN+ 20 now includes:
- Demian Maia vs. Ben Askren
- Michael Johnson vs. Stevie Ray
- Ciryl Gane vs. Don’Tale Mayes
- Sergei Pavlovich vs. Maurice Greene
- Frank Camacho vs. Beneil Dariush
- Jarjis Danho vs. Greg Hardy
- Ian Heinisch vs. Brad Tavares
