A welterweight bout between Dan Hardy and Siyar Bahadurzada could be coming to UFC on Fuel 7 in London in February, though the bout is not yet signed.

In comments made to Tatame.com, Bahadurzada said he's waiting for Hardy to accept the fight, but it's one he's definitely interested in.

"It's just rumor, but if Hardy accepts, I'd love to fight him in his yard," Bahadurzada said. "It would be an interesting fight, though I think I am a terrible struggle for him. He [would] not survive the first round."

The 28-year-old Afghani fighter made his UFC debut in April, knocking out Paulo Thiago at UFC on Fuel 2 in Sweden. He was supposed to return in July, but suffered an injury that took him out of UFC 149. Hardy picked up a decision win over Amir Sadollah at UFC on Fuel 5 in September, his second straight win following a four-fight losing streak.

Penick's Analysis: This could be a really good fight if the UFC books it. Bahadurzada is a vicious striker, and a bout with Hardy would almost assuredly be entertaining. Bahadurzada may be deserving of a fight higher up the ladder, but he'd be no less than a co-main event on this Fuel card against Hardy in London. Because of that, it's a fight that does make sense for him, and if it comes together it's a good fight for the London fans.
