After Becoming the First Man to Finish Dan Miller, Jordan Mein Makes a Quick Turnaround Against Matt Brown at ‘UFC on FOX 7′ [UPDATED]

While we were predicting who the biggest winners of UFC 158 should face in their next fights earlier this week, we unfortunately made one glaring omission: that of 23 year-old Canadian phenom Jordan Mein. If you recall, Mein became the first man ever to finish Dan Miller (via first round TKO) at the event — a feat made all the more impressive when you realize just what kind of killers Miller has faced over his career, along with the fact that he had Mein in a tight armbar just moments before being finished.

And being that Mein was able to come away from the fight practically untouched, it was announced earlier today that “Young Gun” will now being making a quick turnaround against Matt Brown at UFC on FOX 7, as Brown’s original opponent, Dan Hardy, has been forced to withdraw from the fight due to injury. Barns, they will be burned.

After suffering a horrific 1-4 stretch between 2010-2011, Brown was able to completely (and somewhat unexpectedly) turn his career around in 2012, putting together four straight victories including a KO win over Mike Swick at UFC on FOX 5 last December. Mein, on the other hand, has tasted victory in 9 of his last 10 performances, leaving the likes of Josh Burkman, Joe Riggs, and Evangelista Santos in his wake.

So, Potato Nation, do you have Mein by murder or Brown by…murder?

[UPDATE] 

Turns out Hardy wasn’t injured; he was not given medical clearance for the fight due to a pre-existing condition. Hardy gives us the details via his Twitter after the jump.

If it's a pre-existing condition, why did they just find out about it now and not sooner? Did he just apply for a license to fight at the show the other day or something?

Wolf Heart = Vagina. But don't worry, they are setting up a fight between Hardy & Fallon Fox.

This guy put away one of my favorite fighters when he TKO (holy shit! Right) miller. The arm bar escape had the grappler in me yelling at the screen. And now he faces Brown?! Another tough as shit fighter. Awesome!
Wolf-parksinson-white syndrome perhaps

If you have a Wolf Heart does that mean you buy Wolf Tickets? Nick Diaz will now call out Dan Hardy.

I have seen enough of Mein to think that he finishes Brown but it should be fireworks though. That kid is lanky and has the combo of youth with experience. Pretty damn impressive performance last weekend against Miller. More impressive than getting a TKO was that spin-a-roony escape he pulled to get out of what seemed to be a fight-ending arm bar. The kid has a future.
