I have no complaints about watching GSP in action regardless of who he fights.

To be honest the UFC feels a little stretched at the moment. Uncle Couture just headlined a card with Brandon Vera! Machida's hype fizzled down faster than his PPV sales will, couple this with Brock's illness, Rampage being Brad Pitt, Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin at 106, you have a very limited number of popular stars in action.

I don't care if GSP is fighting a 10 year old, I will buy the card.

Wow, couldn't have said it better myself.

I think a lot of people are underrating Hardy.

If you listen to him talk he seems to have the mentality of a champion. He's very clever and articulate and he's certainly going to have a game plan going into the fight. I also think they would be pretty evenly matched in the striking department, so he has at least half a chance. Then again I thought Alves stood a chance of beating GSP in the stand-up before he got mercilessly beaten down.

I think we just have to accept that GSP is head and shoulders above the rest at the moment, so unless we see him in the ring against A.Silva or another decent MW any time soon, people are gonna moan.

And with regards to not buying the card, just meh, usually the best fights are the ones between lesser names. When you started following MMA did you know any names then? This whole mentality about having a "big name" to headline a card is starting to annoy me a little. Sure we want to see good fights and good fighters, but they all started somewhere. And you're telling me, a championship fight between GSP (the top boy at WW) and Hardy (a top contender on a 7 fight win streak) is suddenly not considered good enough to headline an event? Get the **** out of here.

Break The Walls has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I think Hardy deserves a shot more than anyone else GSP hasn't already beaten.

Think about it.
If GSP's fights had been Machida/Shogun-esque then rematches would make sense and appeal to the crowd.
But the fact that GSP has dominated with ease every single of the top contenders then by all the logic you just have to give a chance to the best guy that comes after all the Alveses and Fitches.

*everyone points at Hardy*

I mean... do I think that Hardy has a chance? No. If he does it's slimmer than Roli Delgado... (knees GSP's face when Georgy goes for a takedown for example)
But then, he has deserved it more than some of the hot exciting newcomers (Rumble, Daley ect...).

I don't get people whining about this. I say it can be enjoyable despite not having all the crazy hype.

I like Dan Hardy, so I'm loving the fact he's getting a title shot. It's nice to see a fighter from the UK getting a title shot. I think it the reaction to this fight announcement does show how good GSP is though. You've got guys like Hardy, Alves, Koscheck, Rumble, Fitch, Daley etc etc being talked about as not having a chance of beating him. I don't think it shows how poor the division is, just how damn good GSP is.

1 other positive to come out of this Hardy title shot for me is that Mike Swick doesn't get a shot. Bout time he was found out for the over-rated fighter he is. Had an easier run in the UFC than Bisping, and at least Bisping's only 2 losses have come against top tier fighters.

Pretty sure Dana said it'll most likely be happening in Vegas. The next event set to be held in Vegas is UFC 109, but that date's looking unlikely as Dan wants more time. So you never know where it'll happen, I think a Vegas event is likely though.

Really unlikely. With a bunch of the UFC's top names injured they are going to be eager for a big draw. If it is anywhere but the US it will be Montreal or the UFC's coming out party for Toronto or Vancouver.

Lol, you just seem like a damn hater. Probably one of those idiots who thinks GSP's doesn't strike anymore after he got TKO'd by Serra.

I'll admit that the Alves fight was not a very exciting fight, but it was hardly lnp. I am going to be very surprised if GSP can't finish Hardy within 5 rounds. While Dan is a solid striker I am still skeptic whether his grappling is good enough. He's going to end up on his back some time during the fight and he'll most likely get submitted or TKO'd.

THe fight is too early in Hardys UFC career imo, however how long Hardy lasts at least hes a gamer and will try, i just hope the UFC dont mismatch him again
