I'm glad to see GSP getting a weak opponent actually, I can't wait for him to wreck Hardy with his dynamic striking, then pound him out for a round 2 stoppage.
I'm interested in this fight, but I'd be much more interested if there were lots and lots of dynamic striking from GSP, like, using his karate type dynamic striking.

I would love to see GSP in a "No Takedowns" match. I know it's not possible, unless both him and his opponent make an agreement before the match, but it would be interesting to see his stand up truly tested without his opponents constantly expecting to be taken down. I understand takedowns are part of MMA, I personally love a good takedown, but GSP abuses them like a red-headed step child just because he can do it at will.

Hardy gets it b/c:

1) Dana does not want rematches right now;
2) Dana wants to help establish numbers and interest across the pond, and Bisping is at 185; and,
2) Johnson screwed himself by not making weight.

Mousasi agreed to a K1 match not too long ago against a striker, so I could totally see it possible if Dana pulled the stick out of his ass.

Use all K1 rules, I think GSP would devastate everyone he already has.

Mousasi agree to fight in K1 so Dana should make GSP fight under them in the UFC? Alot of MMA fighters have fought in K1, dont understand the point?

I would love to see GSP put a beatdown on Hardy. I really don't like Hardy because he's a cocky prick, and hopefully GSP can pull off something like Hendo did to shut that fool the hell up.

GSP is long over due for a KO of some punk. I think GSP would own the standup in this fight, Hardy may have power but he is sloppy and gets hit alot.

Brock lesnar injured, Machida getting booed, Silva fighting at lhw, I'm just glad we get a god damned title defense without any strings attached. BJ and GSP are the only two who can keep their shit together nowadays.

I disagree with this and I'm a big GSP fan.

Dont get me wrong, GSP has decent striking but the reason why it looks so good and effective against good strikers/boxers (Alves and BJ for instance) is because he is the best TD artist in MMA and his opponents have so much to worry about standing.

If they get aggressive and over-commit to their strikes, GSP ducks under, shoots in and TDs them. If they dont, GSP sets the pace and out-strikes them.

I'd take Thiago over GSP in a K1 bout and BJ over GSP in a boxing match all day, even though he out-struck/out-boxed both of them in a MMA fight.
