Here we go again the ufc feeding there champs unranked bouts to build there records and "fame" up...Hardy is a up and comer in no way shape or form does he deserve a title shot. In fact with a punchers chance its jus setting him up for failure.. We have gone through this with so many champs its crazy but yet Dana is god and wont open his doors to inter org play. Not saying that no2 is else where in the ww division Im jus saying.. Its weak. And ya wanna cry Fedor is fighting bums and undeserving fights.. lol :sarcastic12:
UFC is the promotion the fighters are the draw you people need to realize the true meaning of this when u cry how great Dana is.

considering he beat Alves, Fitch, Hughes, BJ Penn, Koz, Serra and Sherk.... yea he is fighting bums.... its the UFCs fault he is head and shoulders above the rest, who would you have him fight?? Fitch and Alves are still 2nd and 3rd ranked he already destroyed both, Hughes?? Paulo Thaigo?? Carlos Condit?? Semtex??

No, GSP isnt fighting bums. GSP is just that much better then the best, accept it, embrace it, love it ;)

Consider that 9 out of 10 of the top ranked WWs currently fight in the UFC... if the division is weak its hardly the UFCs fault, but it isnt, your just plain wrong, GSP is beating the best they just cant compete with him. The UFC OWNS the top part of the WW division and there are very few WWs worth mentioning outside of the UFC... you want GSP to destroy shields?? who else is there?

Below me, the WW division isnt just "that weak"... GSP is just that good. He fights literally all the top guys, and those guys have gone on to stay at the top... not much more can be said.

So what is your solution? Jake Shields? Gsp is just that good, not that the welterweight division is weak.

what a pointless rant, if you actually thought about it before posting, I dont think you would really post. Who is GSP to fight... they need him to fight somebody and not just wait for this next big contender.

I dont think he will fight Anderson anytime, he said he would need to take a long time off to prepare for that fight because he needs to get his body weight up

Come on now. You have to be kidding. I agree that GSP is going to wreck Hardy. But he's beaten the best welterweights in the world. Who would you want him to fight in strikeforce? Jake Shields? Nick Diaz?

He is fighting guys with no chance, the problem is he has beaten all the real contenders in the UFC and now is fighting contenders of last resort if you will, they basically look at Hardy and say well GSP has beaten everyone else so its you turn.

Hardy should decline the fight,tell Dana to feed someone else to GSP.But who could he fight who he hasnt already beaten?

Why would you decline a chance for the belt even if you have a strikers chance, I can agree if belfort declined since it was his first fight in 3+ years or so

I dont think Hardys ready for a title shot punchers chance or not.It would be better for him to fight some of the top 5 contenders before taking on the Champion,if he defeats them of course.

RUMBLE VS GSP...THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN..this is a fight that we need... RUMBLE IS A SICK WRESTLER and i would love to see a striking match between them... Paul Daley aint ready but hes a Monster in striking and you know what Dan Hardy does have a punchers chance i mean shit who the **** thought Matt Serra was gonna beat GSP????? huh ... gsp needs to fight someone soon he cant take that much time off and since fitch vs alvez is off who else but dan hardy unless they wait for the winner of kos vs rumble...and if the winner is on medical suspension might be a even longer wait.. i say gsp vs hardy is gsp wins he fights the winner of rumble vs kos

This has to be one of the stupidest threads I've ever read, I'm surprised it's coming from an established member and not some noob with two posts.

GSP has beaten everyone in the top WW top 10 besides Shields and Hardy. Maybe the UFC will sign shields, but not having ONE top 10 fighter is no reason to whine about. They just gave him the #2 (Fitch), #3 (Alves), #4 (Koscheck), #5 (Hughes) Welterweights, and #1 LW/#4 p4p fighter (BJ) in the world for his last 6 fights!!!! Is this thread supposed to be ironic? If anything GSP has had the toughest fight resume of any fighter in two years, in the history of mma. Which other fighter has fought and beaten 5 top 5 fighters in 2 years?? Oh that's right NO ONE. I could see this argument against Anderson being fed guys like Cote and Leites, or Fedor fighting Rogers/HMC/Hunt, but GSP? If you feel the need to whine, at least pick something remotely logical.

Hardy is the best fight left for GSP at the moment, he is a legit top 10 WW after beating Swick and being on a 7 win streak (12, if you disregard the DQ to Yoshida), and 4-0 in the UFC against guys like Marcus Davis, Swick and Gono. Besides him and shields, there is no WW left. Only a superfight with Anderson. It's not the UFCs fault GSP is so good.

I don't get why they aren't building up Johnson's name way faster than they are. If his last fight had been Kos, this coming fight could've been alves or fitch and boom, title fight next february.

Problem is I think Rumble or Daley would beat Hardy, both are better fighters, Hardy put on the most impressive fight of his career last night but it still highlighted just how far from being ready for a title shot he really is.

there comes a point after top fighters have beaten everyone there is to beat where it looks like they're just fighting chumps. That's what happens where there's no legitimate contenders left. Look at Anderson Silva, or Fedor. Same with GSP. Who really is there left that poses a legitimate threat to these guys?

Dumb huh.. Newb noob right.. Ok lets think about this.. Fitch fought GSP 3 bouts ago .. They went 5 rds for a decision and got fight of the night. On so many mma rankings not jus one they have Fitch as ranked no1 contender. Im saying why the hell isnt he fighting him again.. A deserving contender.. Urijah Faber lost came back beat Pulver again then got another shot.. Fitch beat to good fighters and still hes sitting on the back burner.. And they give Hardy a title shot.. lol.. Please.. New face or not.. Id rather watch a match that could go either way for 5 rds then a 1sided slaughter.. Hardy needs to fight a top5 contender before hes a legit for a title shot. Swick was not a legit contender for a title shot either.

Everyone posting in this thread keeps claiming the same line to justify the bout. " he has beaten everyone"

Fitch is a long deserving contender. They went 5 rds last time got fight of the night and gsp wasnt able to finish him.. I honestly think jus as Hughes was able to beat gsp the first time because mentally gsp let him the same happened to fitch .. Fitch can beat gsp or give him a damn good running for it.. Id rather see that then gsp vs hardy.. Also a bout between Shields and gsp would kick ass to actually see where jake is sitting these days since he is in the top 5.

its ironic that you cling to Fedors sack and his last 3 wins are over guys that dropped like bricks outta the rankings, then you question GSP when the guys he has beaten are still going on to beat everybody else... lol yea obv GSP not gonna tool Fitch again... cuz Fitch looked so convincing taking that beatdown for 5 rounds and never having GSP in anything close to trouble, im sure it wil all change around soon for him... same for Alves... I think the UFC is doing the right thing, letting some new blood get in, and believe me ANYBODY GSP FACES WILL BE SEEN AS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN.... UNTIL THE CHALLENGER ACTUALLY DOES.... nobody is giving ANYBODY ON THE PLANET a chance to beat GSP, so there will always be noobs like you that will come and say "this isnt right" but its utterly foolish and mind blowing. The guys George beats havent disappeared, infact most go on win streaks after losing to him, but none of them gave GSP a test whatsoever. But you dont know if Dan Hardy will, styles make fights and so do the fighters. I can say with certainty that GSP would beat fitch or alves again, im pretty sure he can beat Hardy but i havent seen it, and until i do its just an OPINION.

btw good luck marketing fitch vs GSP dos... im sure ppl will just go crazy when they hear that superfight coming up.... im sure it will be easy to hype what a great idea!!!! Lets waste main events on fights ppl dont wanna see!! At least Hardy will bring his fanbase with him and we really dont know what will happen between the two til it does. I have a strong feeling GSP will dismantle him, but so what?? Unless he finishes him its nothing he didnt do to Fitch or Alves or Penn or Hughes or Kos or whatever guy you think is worthy of fighting him again.

Wow. The only reason he is fighting these guys is because he has already completely tooled all of the top WW fighters. But really, what do you want? Gsp just have a scheduled rotation fighting the same fighters over and over again. Do you want him to destroy Fitch and Alves and Koscheck 50 times? Or do you want him to fight as many people as he can.

This doesn't take away from him as a fighter. If you think that his record is padded in anyway shape or form then you have no idea about mma or the ufc. He has beaten the best of the best already.

Who else is left to fight? Jake Shields? If he came to the UFC it would be the same old story. GSP has beaten Mayhem Miller already. So who is left outside of the UFC?

The only reason GSP is fighting these people is because he has already beaten all of the top fighters.
