Funny how they made hardy looking like some kind of elite striker and gsp has to take it to the ground. Imo hardy is worse than fitch, alves and koscheck so gsp should take it.

The hw division is great right now. I cant wait to see carwin again. He just punches harder than a human beeing can handle. Mir will be in trouble.

Hardy is a mighty fine striker though, maybe not quite as good as they were hyping, but better than alot of the Hardy haters think. Not only does he have very proficient, technical Muay Thai, he also has very good boxing thanks to the work he's done with Freddie Roach. He out-struck Marcus Davis and Mike Swick, and proved he had KO power against Rory Markham. I can't wait for the fight. I love GSP, but I'll be cheering on Dan Hardy all the way in this fight. Roll on March 27th!

This got me hyped. Hardy is a very good striker but GSP will just take it to the ground and demolish him.

I'll be rooting for Hardy though, just so the WW division gets a shake up. Who doesn't like to see an upset.

I dunno whats gonna happen with Mir and Carwin. I can't pick a winner yet. It'll be fun though.

Lolololol

St. Pierre's striking is his weakness and Hardy's striking is perfect. Way to try and hype a one sided beatdown Dana hahaha.

They gotta hype the fight somehow, saying that GSP doesnt have any problems in his game and Hardy is good striker doesnt do much in getting people wanting to see the massive beatdown

Agreed + Rep!

I used to be a Hardy-hater (mainly because he fought all the guys I liked). But the Muay-Thai clinic he put on against Davis and the boxing against Swick was nasty. I think GSP's only weakness is that he's human. He has a chin just like anyone else (I think Serra proved this the best). And when he fights, he can win the fight anywhere, but I think the only way he can really loose it is on his feet. Hardy throws HARD (pardon the pun), but he does. And if he catches GSP, he won't hesitate for one quarter of a second. He will jump on GSP like he's a wounded animal and finish him off.

Now, don't get me wrong, I see GSP winning this fight 9 times out of 10, but I don't give Hardy no chance at all, I think if he can keep it standing (which will be the deciding factor), we'll see a really good technical and aggressive striking battle.

Marcus Davis and Mike Swick,ARE B fighter imo. Hardy striking is not that impressive. Head movement close to none
