Because he's both won and lost to fringe UFC caliber fighters which are what Petz, Healy, Yoshida, (and Sadollah, Gono, and Davis).

By no means do I disparage the fighter, I enjoy Dan Hardy's fights and I feel like he has a place in the UFC. Personally I feel like the UFC Welterweight division should be treated like almost separate company and carry 75-100 guys as I feel like the weight class is absurdly deep.

The problem with him as I'm not 100% sure he's one of the 50 best WW's in the world and that his talent seems to be prelim card level not main card level.
