You might be right because I haven't seen any of Siyars fights. But I wouldn't just simply count Dan Hardy out. Dan Hardy is always a game opponent, and his stand-up is pretty solid. He may have more room for error as far as keeping a UFC contract goes, but if you haven't noticed, Hardy is on a 2-0 run now and is 6 - 4 in the UFC. Regardless of who he beat, to say he is a borderline UFC fighter that should be cut is nonsense.
I don't think he's a bum, but if he were to be cut he wouldn't go on a 9-0 rampage and rank as a top ten guy. Is he that much better than Matt Riddle, Sean Pierson, and Brad Tavares I don't think so. And I don't know if he's better than Saffiedine, Burkman, Harris, and Mein.
And yes I pick Siyar by KO
