Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Dan Hardy

Nope. This match up isn't being announced.

Would it be a good fight?

The ultimate win or go home fight. I'm kinda "meh" on it TBH.

Wow, really getting bored with no UFC I see.

Sexyama shouldn't get another fight in the UFC. I have no interest.

Hardy would be the perfect guinea pig for some judo magic.

After watching Akiyama get out-struck against Jake Shields I don't know what would happen if he fought someone like Hardy.

I think he respected the ground game of Shields too much and Shields should get credit for exploiting it. Against Hardy I think Sexyama would showcase his real stand-up.

Hardy is fighting Ludwig where Hardy will be outclassed standing. If he could keep the fight standing against Akiyama he would stand a better chance of winning.

Hardy to Strikeforce for the WW title.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo

I still think Akiyama could have beaten Shields had he not been so bloody hesitant. It was clear that he had all the tools to do so, physically (albeit not mentally).
