Hardy deserves it so let him have it. Sadly for him his ground game isn't good enough and he'll get subbed around middle of round 2 after eating a boatload of punches, elbows and knees on ground first.

Both Penn and Alves got great striking but neither was able to use it against GSP. Both also have better TDD than Hardy and had no chance to prevent the takedowns from GSP. Also Im not even that convinced that Hardy's striking is as versatile as GSP's either, we might very well see him getting tagged a few times standing before he gets taken down.

I just hope they make this match the headline for the Vancouver card so Hardy is finnally in a match with the crowd 100% against him while he gets smashed.

The dude in your avatar would be able to KO GSP in 2-3 rounds with a proper gameplan and some wins under his belt like if he beats Koscheck and maybe a Fitch/Alves he is good to go.

Hardy has a good enough chance as GSP's last 3 opponents did.

I think Rumble definetly has the best chance at beating GSP simply because he has the most KO power in his hands out of anyone at WW, plus he may have the wrestling and strength to stuff GSP's takedowns for a bit while looking for the KO.

Hardy has less power than Rumble and not as good of wrestling, but still a punchers chance for he does have power.

I'm the exact opposite, actually. I don't order an event with Anderson Silva or GSP fighting, 'cause there is a 99% chance it's going to end the same way it normally does, a win in their favor.

Infact, I hate the MW division now, 'cause Anderson Silva is so dominant.

I'll be completely honest. I don't see either Hardy or Daley ever coming close to dethroning GSP. The wrestling and overall skill will make the difference. GSP could prolly submit them both if he trained exclusively on that alone. At least AJ is naturally bigger and has the wrestling to keep it interesting. The striking is a no-brainer since AJ has the ability to KO dudes with a punch or a kick... Maybe even knees? I don't see GSP finishing him on the feet. He couldn't with Alves.

I hope he succeeds this weekend against Kos. Kos/GSP II would be too soon and rematches in the WW don't sound too exciting IMO.

That fight and its resulting title fight represents everything that's wrong with the UFC. FOR GOD SAKE'S START RANKING YOUR FIGHTERS! Swick had a UFC record of 13 - 0 going into that fight. Hardy had a UFC record of 3 - 0. IMHO this matchup was an insult to Swick (I know that sounds ridiculous in hindsight - but we say it all the time - "Anything can happen in a fight" well, "anything" did happen this time - Hardy won). To say that whoever won that fight was deserving of a title shot is just dumb. The UFC constantly shoots itself in the foot by doing this. The same thing happened when they matched up Huerta vs. Kenflo - Huerta lost and we ended up with a challenger who never should have had a shot at BJ. Way to go guys....way to go. Even though he lost - I'd still rather see Mike Swick vs. GSP than Hardy vs. GSP. Now that can't happen.

Let's Bang!

Joe Silva needs to get fired. I could done a better job and would give what the fans want. But since he is Dana's massage partner It won't happen.

Vera vs. Couture? Velasquez vs. Rothwell? C'mon Joey boy... Smarten the hell up.

Swick should have gotten his shot 6 months ago... He was 4-0 or 5-0 at WW and had beaten Davis more decisively than Hardy did.
