    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Ya BJ is really starting to prove he is not going to be beat by anyone in the LW except by fluke. It will be nice to see BJ be pushed again.

    I think GSP is a lot of people's kryptonite lol. It does seem like BJ is in a lot better shape now than his previous fights with GSP. He straight up out worked Diego.

    Well spoken. Rematches with Kos or Fitch would be more interesting. I personally can't stand Hardy and think he def needed to fight some top 10 guys before this shot.

    Hardy is a great stand up fighter but gsp has mended up all his weakpoints on standup. Gsp is gonna take this by a landslide.

    Good luck to dan hardy though.

    personally i'd like to see fitch fight gsp again...gsp is the only loss on fitch's record for awhile now...kos just seems like he rattles of 2 or 3 wins and then losses...but the question is who will lose first, bj in his weight class, gsp in his weight class, or anderson silva in his weight class

    I think BJ's performance will be. No one really questioned Diego's title shot, and BJ made him look really bad. Not that I don't think GSP in going to dominate. It's just that a lot of people don't believe Hardy is in his league as it is.

    Fitch's career is at a crossroads right now as he has had little improvement in his game over the past couple of years. I'd personally be surprised in he beats Thiago because of his improved TD defense. Hell, he had trouble beating Pierce a few months back and he is nowhere near an elite WW.

    It depends ultimately on how you define, "dominate." I think Diego's face will undoubtedly be worse for wear, but defining "dominance" by damage taken often does not tell the whole story: for example, fight metric registered GSP's performance over BJ himself as more dominant than BJ's victory over Diego, but it was not nearly as brutal - this is simply the result of differing fighting styles. In reality, I think Dan Hardy will amount even less offense than Diego was capable of producing, but the end result will be less bloody.

    I agree with Rodja that Fitch is at a critical point in his career, and needs to either evolve or falter. His opponents have realized he employs largely the same strategy and technique from fight-to-fight, and his grind-it-out method will no longer be effective. I expect to see a Thiago Alves KO.

    Alves appears to be out of this fight due to an irregular artery in his brain.

    good point, i guess i'm not really impressed by kos, sometimes he looks really good, then the next fight he gets beat...i'd love to see alves fight gsp again but alves really needs to improve his game and get in gear when it comes to his training if he recovers...fight magazine reported several months ago he shows up to the gym real late and stuff...he thinks he's a celebrity

    Kos has only lost to the elite of the elite WWs. Losing to Alves (on short notice), GSP, and Paulo is not a bad thing. I don't want to use the term fluke with his loss to Paulo, but that rematch really needs to happen. Winner gets next title shot.

    I don't think hardy stands a chance. I thought Alves would give GSP a run for his money and got completely dominated and I'd go on a limb and says Alves has better Muay Thai than Hardy's stand-up. Unless Hardy has some unruly gameplan, GSP will stand up, let Hardy think he's getting in a striking war and is faring well, then take him down and dominate. Whether that means submission or just pounding on him for 5 rounds.

    Hardy's striking has been over vaunted, while his more-than-lacking TD defense and sub-par grappling have not been mentioned enough. In reality, he has far, far less of a chance than either Fitch or Alves.

    Which may go to show how easy it is to achieve credentials under Eddie Bravo, as Hardy has a brown belt under him.

    That could also show the difference between MMA grappling and BJJ. Matt Serra got a 2nd place in ADCC in 2001 I believe, but has never really been able to use it in MMA.

    That is a good point, Rodja: the dynamics of position, momentum and leverage change when you are being punched in the face. Hardy had massive amounts of trouble grappling and wrestling with Marcus Davis, and that does not bode well for him.

    While I think Hardy's strength will keep him in this for two or three rounds, he will fall eventually.
