Hardy has plenty of mental fortitude, it takes tons of mental toughness to scream in pain to a sub, but refuse to tap, and have the wherewithal to escape.
It doesn't matter how tough his mind is, his chin wasn't as strong as Condit's fist. And the last minute sub to Lytle is just a shitty turn of events.
He looked bad against Johnson, just bad. Against GSP, did anyone really give him much of a shot against the grind master?
He's a good fighter but even if he can string a few wins together, I don't see him getting another shot. I would like to see him in the UFC, I'd hate to see someone like Hardy end up in Strikeforce, Bellator or god forbid Bamma.
