Of those six fights...

He's won 1 by Knockout
He's won 3 by decision
and he's lost 2.
One of those losses are by knockout.

That's two years worth of fights... that is not top anything striker material at WW in the world.
KO's don't amount to being a good striker. if you have power then thats great but it doesn't mean you are better then most, just more dangerous.

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.

No, he's been touted as a KO artist. If you want to argue against that than it's fine.

Even Rogan brags about Hardys power ever chance he gets..

So, just because the UFC marketed him as one doesn't mean he was one and even after he KO'd Markham he said in the interview with joe he said "No power aye" and then joe asked if thats what Markham was saying about him and Hardy said "to be honest it's not what i am known for but it was great to show case that i do have it". not exactly word for word but it was pretty similar.

And having a collapsed lung or not, it doesn't make a difference when you get punched square along the temple.

That is the point being made here.
