How in god's name has Hardy earned his by beating a nobody, barely squeaking out a decision against Marcus Davis and then winning another decision over Mike Swick?
Fair point, but Hughes, Daley, Condit, Serra and Sherk all have fights lined up, Sanchez has Penn and a fight with Alves (coming off the back of a failed title shot) would be a bit pointless at this point in time, so Hardy doesn't have the opportunity to fight these guys atm. He has beaten two top 10-15 fighters and no-one is really standing out as a run away number 1 contender, i mean before Hardy there was talk of Kampmann getting a title shot ffs!!
Personally i would have liked to see Hardy fight someone like Yoshida or even Koscheck before getting a title shot but give him credit, he dominated Swick and has put himself in the position to get a title shot, so why all the complaining?
