Oh please. No matter who you put in there against GSP, you'll get the same result. 5 round decision of GSP peckering punches and outwrestling his opponent. You'll get it with Hardy, you'll get it with Swick, you'll get it with Paul Daley (actually that one would probably be a stoppage) and you'll get it with Kampmann.

That said, I hope Hardy pulls it off and I'd love to see him in the main event over all the people I just previously mentioned. He'll hype the fight enough for you to want to watch him get his ass kicked, I guarentee it.

He's got the power to drop GSP, remember this.

And joshua is correct. As of right now, Hardy deserves the shot more than any other fighter GSP hasen't faced yet. Before this fight people were wanting Swick/GSP. Hardy just beat Swick, so how in the blue hell does he not deserve a shot?

How is this any different than paul daley's situation with kampmann? they were both on streaks and beat coontenders who the ufc felt were ripe to challenge GSP..

If johnson beats koscheck will that make him a contender too? cuz like hardy he will be on a 4 fight streak in the ufc with his latest victim being a TUFer (like that should mean something)

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Hardy is going to expose GSP's weak standup game and wrestling.

He is goign to knock GSP out, it's going to be an end of an era.

I don't see that happening. Although I don't like it, GSP is an amazing wrestler and no one can defend against him. Ever since he beat Matt Serra for the title, he doesn't really even attempt to do stand up. It's just take down after take down for 5 rounds straight. I don't like Hardy but he is definitely more entertaining than GSP.

Marcus Davis/Mike Swick/Rory Markham > Martin Kampmann. That's why.

Again, Anthony Johnson hasen't beaten the levelcompetition that Hardy has in the UFC. Even if Johnson beats Koscheck, he still wouldn't deserve it over Hardy.

.... Not entirely sure what to say to that. Have you ever watched GSP fight? Since when has his stand up ever been weak? It's not world class like Silva, but it's a notch above most peoples.

If Hardy 'exposes' GSP's wrestling, probably the best wrestling in MMA right now, I'll be more shocked than when he got TKO'd by Serra.

If Hardy manages to stuff more than 1 take down, I'll still be surprised.

Yeah I doubt Hardy is going to come out with better wrestling than GSP's. With that said, it looks like a another boring victory for GSP. I'd like to see a KO but I don't think its going to happen.

Hardy hits harder than Matt Serra and has better stand-up as well. But I'm not using Matt Serra has an excuse as to why Hardy could beat GSP. I know Serra was a fluke. Of course, anything can happen in MMA.

As far as GSP's stand-up being weak, like dude said, it's not weak, just not one of his strong points and isn't world class by any stretch of the imagination. The guy is just so damn athletic and intelligent that he can't be bad or weak in any area of MMA.

hardy is the most deserving at the moment, i wont buy the fight but i'll def go out to the sports bar to watch it. I dont see it going 5 rounds, GSP will stop him.
