He's cleared out the division. There are no more challenges left, so give Hardy (whoever he is) a shot while GSP gains enough weight to move up to 185. I'd like to see Aki vs. GSP as Georges' first fight at MW.

Perhaps GSP can rule supreme at 185 when Anderson moves up to 205 or HW permanently.

edit: GSP DOES have one more interesting fight left: Rumble.

Hey guys. Remember that Serra-syndrome happens once in a lifetime...ONCE!!! This guy can hit but methinks he won't land anything in this one. GSP has learned his lesson.

The reason GSP lost to Serra was most likely from underestimating him but I doubt he does that anymore. GSP has since evolved into the boring wrestler who refuses to take risks. Lay and pray is safe and it's gets him the win, screw entertaining the fans right? I hate how people will shit on other fighters for just laying there but when GSP does it, it's cool now!

It could be argued that he's fighting smart.

He is. That was the point I was making. He fights smart, using his lay and pray method to get the win but it's an incredibly boring method.

Hardy wouldn't last more than a round most likely.

Hardy has done enough to deserve a shot at the title, so this thread is a bit redundant! Just cos you don't like the guy and think he'll get beat easy doesn't mean he shouldn't get a shot. If we're being honest Jake Shields is the only fighter who could fight at that weight and give GSP a run for his money, but you can't just not have GSP defend cos the contenders will most likely lose!

Jesus...this is how bad the GSP suckfest has gotten. The idea that the man has "learned his lesson" meaning he's learned not to get punched...so he'll never be hit again or have one glancing blow.

Sorry, but Anderson Silva (assumingly now after Lyoto/Shogun) is the least hit fighter in the UFC and probably in MMA and he atleast gets hit once per fight.

And then to think Dan Hardy won't land a single strike on GSP..even if "he can hit." What the **** kind of shit is that? Jesus.

Lol at Hardy not lasting a round. I forgot how much of a devestating finisher GSP has been in the last couple of years. Now he's going to finish a guy with a granite chin, KO power, and good grappling in one round....todays GSP. Interesting. Even the "old" GSP didn't finish worthy opponents in one round, but this one can? Interesting theory, considering it took him two rounds to finish Serra and Hardy is a little of a lot more talented than Serra ever was.

You're just a cook...

Thiago Alves had to beat Matt Hughes, Chris Lytle, Josh Koscheck, Karo Parisyan and many others before given a title shot. He had a 7 win-streak. Alot of his wins ending in devastating fashion.

John Fitch had to have an 8 win-streak, with wins over Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez, before he was given a title shot.

How in god's name has Hardy earned his by beating a nobody, barely squeaking out a decision against Marcus Davis and then winning another decision over Mike Swick?

Different circumstances. As of right now...like...now, Dan Hardy deserves it more than any other welterweight now.

Lol at a lot of Alve's wins ending in devestating fashion. Yeah, losing a fight to Karo until one knee, winning by cut against Lytle, beating a tiresome Matt Hughes coming in like 6 pounds overweight, and decision (no finish) against Kosheck. Devestating finishing indeed. Sorry, but Anderson Silva finishes people in devestating fashion. Fedor finishes people in devestating fashion. BJ Penn finishes people in devestating fashion. Please don't put Thiago Alves in the same limelight.

And he didn't squeek out a win against Davis. He won fairly decisively.
