Hardy was marketed as a KO striker when he had a few KO's over nobodies. He did nothing to cement this reputation in the UFC with his single KO over a collapsed-lung one-dimensional striker in Markham.

I respect that he has spent a lot of time at 10th Planet filling out his skillset and he's not a bad fighter or anything, but his hype seems to me to be mostly about attracting UK fans to the UFC fold... not his actual potential.
