He's a UK guy so he will get a 4th chance.
I love to see the guy lose, just can't stand him. Now I can finally give him the nickname of "Can Hardly"
he will probably get a certain win next time against some prelim nobody without wrestling-ability.

Well that's it. If Dana loves you, you ain't going anywhere. Given that Dan is a Brit only helps his career.

How can you possibly hate hardy? i used to hate him because he was from the uk and seemed very cocky. However now that his exposure to the non uk fans is great. We see the kind of person hardy is. He is just a good fighter with a great personality with an English accent.

Bullshit, Cote gets released after losing to Anderson Silva via freak injury and then dropping two more consecutive fights. Cote main evented 2 PPV's for the UFC fought on short notice and had TUF marketing machine behind him. My disgust at this considering that Hardy has been dominated in his last 3 is hard to put into words.

In my opinion Dan Hardy easily carries the Chris Leben banner of the 170 pound division. That guy who entertains everyone, and every now again starts to make some waves, until he crashes... but no bad really comes of that, cause when the crash happens you have a new contender (See Brian Stann).

In a division rich with great wrestlers, you're going to need guys like Dan. Even if he is only fighting new guys to see what they are made of, or taking on vets like Chris Lytle in those guaranteed "fight of the night" matches.

Plain and simple:
Dan is:
Entertaining (more so then most of the divisions top talents)
full of heart
and incredibly easy to market.

Despite these three losses the guy will get cheered in his next fight, I promise you that.

It's safe to say that guy's like Bisping, Hardy, Akiyama have to really suck to get released from UFC.

Hardy will probably get the winner of GSP/Shields for the title.

I have to disagree on Junior as of yet , because he is yet to face a decent wrestler.

Werdum
Nelson
Struve
Cro Cop
Yvel
Gonazaga

Not one of them is any good at TD's.

Hardy needs to lose one more. Dana still needs high profile British fighters, and Hardy is easily the most popular British fighter.

Not really fair for guys like Cote, Leites etc, but marketing is part of a fighters resume, Hardy has a lot of value left, even with 3 losses in a row.

Why would you include Bisping ? Hardy and Akiyama have been fortunate but Bisping has been impressive throughout his career and hasnt even come close to 2 losses in a row let along 3.
