Dan Hardy always comes off as a dude I’d like to hang out with, and not just because we’re both 10th Planet Jiu-jitsu guys and have a penchant for mohawks and punk music.
As Ben pointed out earlier, he can pretty much make anything sound cool by saying it with a slick Nottingham accent that makes him sound like a cross between James Bond and Johnny Rotten.
Hardy stopped by Amoeba Music in L.A. recently and revealed what he had purchased for a segment of their "What’s in my bag?" series and some of his buys were a bit surprising.
I was taken back a bit by the wide spectrum of bands like Megadeath and Madness to Martha and the Vandellas in his shopping bag in addition to the healthy serving of Brit punk in the form of Crass and The Dickies. I have most of the albums and movies he bought and mentioned in the segment, but I had forgotten about Cock Sparrer and Dan’s mention of them spurred me to download some of their stuff from iTunes.
Hardy is set to take on Carlos Condit at UFC 120 on October 16 in London and the fight will likely be a stand-up clinic.
