To some extent but I think it would be silly to think that some genuine personality traits do not shine through during the pre fight hype. To the extent Hardy seems to respect martial arts I can't understand why he's such an ego-maniac. Then again, this is sport, entertainment and martial arts all thrown in together so it's certainly fair game.
