Michael Bisping reacts to newly announced Dan Hardy vs Diego Sanchez boxing match: “Why? That’s crazy!”

MMA analyst Michael Bisping has reacted to the news that Dan Hardy will face Diego Sanchez in an exhibition boxing match.

Still, at the very least, it gives them the chance to see “The Hitman” in the ring one more time before he hangs them up for good.

Kevin Lee's (19-7) stock has fallen a lot in the past few years. The former can't-miss prospect exited the Ultimate Fighting Championship having lost four of his last five fights, most recently a miserable decision defeat to Daniel Rodriguez. Nevertheless, he was expected to dominate a 40 year-old Diego Sanchez (30-14), a man who seemed like he had no business fighting for a while now, looking woefully out of shape and offering little resistance in his last appearances.
