Different circumstances. As of right now...like...now, Dan Hardy deserves it more than any other welterweight now.
Lol at a lot of Alve's wins ending in devestating fashion. Yeah, losing a fight to Karo until one knee, winning by cut against Lytle, beating a tiresome Matt Hughes coming in like 6 pounds overweight, and decision (no finish) against Kosheck. Devestating finishing indeed. Sorry, but Anderson Silva finishes people in devestating fashion. Fedor finishes people in devestating fashion. BJ Penn finishes people in devestating fashion. Please don't put Thiago Alves in the same limelight.
And he didn't squeek out a win against Davis. He won fairly decisively.
lol at your reasoning. If you read what I said, I said "ending in devastating fashion." While I admit the Lytle win wasn't impressive, all of his other TKO/KOs did END devastatingly. And clearly a decision over Koscheck isn't ending in devastating fashion. I never said it was, I just said he beat Koscheck. And yes he did "squeak" out a decision as it was a split decision. Not only that but I've heard arguments that Davis should have won. I don't feel that way but by no means did Hardy win decisively. Had it been "decisively" he would of won by unanimous decison now wouldn't he?
