Disagree. Hardy is an unknown to most of us. We have no idea of his limits yet. There's no evidence that Hardy wouldn't beat Fitch or Alves. To say he nowhere near them is a bit extreme considering the guy has been in ZERO trouble since coming to the UFC.
GSP will probably win... but on what ive seen of Hardy, especially pre-UFC... man, he is a tough son of a bitch who is really difficult to damage or submit off his back, hits VERY hard and has a granite chin. Yes, I know this all points towards another Fitch type 5 round beat down, but Hardy hits harder and better than Fitch. He could knock GSP out at any second. 25 minutes is a long time...
