i predict gsp takes hardy down and submits or gnp stoppage..
a few people have told me hardys stand up is better then georges..
by the way i think georges stand up is very good and better then hardys!!
I think GSP is better then Hardy everywhere. R.I.P Dan Hardy lol I think KOS or Johnson would match up better with GSP then Hardy.
ANS PERFORMANCE REPRESENTATIVE
fully agree my friend! i still look forward to gsp beating hardy badly...
Hardy has very solid stand up, can take hits pretty well (he has never lost via tko or ko), but has lost 3 of his fights due to submission (all chokes). GSP has the strength and slight reach advantage and a big advantage when it comes to wrestling. We will see about the standup but given his last performance against Alves and the reach advantage im leaning towards GSP having the advantage there as well. I have a feeling that GSP wins by submission in the 3rd or 4th round but I am hoping that he hands Hardy his first TKO loss. Hardy will put up a fight though so it should be fun to watch.
Hardy has better technical boxing (training with Freddie Roach helps), but overall striking I'd give to GSP. This fight, on paper, is horribly mismatched and I really think that Kos deserves a shot before Hardy. To date, Hardy has beaten 1 top-10 opponent (Swick) and that does not merit a title shot.
the only good thing about this fight is that it is on a good card, which could help protect the UFC from any unhappiness with it.

Look at the big picture here guys......gotta keep the UK fans interested.
I think GSP will handle the fight carefully and with precision like he always does. I think he will overwhelm Hardy and put him into frustration.
Also, it may work against Hardy to have only beaten one high ranked fighter because now hes thinking hes so great and may go in with to big a ego.
GSP all the way. i think he needs to bulk up and move up a weight class. he seems dominant
For sure, where do they figure putting him in with GSP would be a good idea. I want to see a Fitch rematch. I think Fitch grew up a lot during that GSP fight and I would like to see a rematch.
I think GSP will take him down and control him. Hardy's chance is with a big punch. I agree Hardy doesnt have much business being in the octogon with GSP but it will be nice to see GSP finish somebody again since he has been so careful lately.
I expect this to be GSP's last fight for quite some time. It does suck that he might take a hiatus in the prime of his career, but trying out for the Olympics is something that very few people can do and I hope he does well. It also helps that he has essentially cleaned out an entire division and it will be competitive for the first time in years. He will competing in the 163 lb class and that would scrap any chance for a fight with Anderson because he will probably be retired by that time.
bj seems to be able to beat everyone.. except gsp, its like gsp is his kryptonite lol
