Amped for this one! Nothing like a good ol slugfest with 2 prospects that initially couldn't live up to their hype and are now ready to prove themselves again. Like Hendo said after Rampage KO-ed Liddell..."nothing wrong with making money with friends"
Im thinking Dan Hardy might try to grapple with Johnson and surprise him ala Penn vs Fitch. Tire him out a bit and then look for exhchanges
you have guys like Johnson and Hardy that say its my job but were friends
is what it is.... and then you have guys like Rashad that cry and have to
be center of attention
im expecting a hagler vs hearns sort of fight
Dont know much about that but if thats equivilant to... Shitsgona get messy!! then im with ye there brosef!
Johnson- Send Hardy back to the UK with his third straight loss, preferably by K.O.
i agree cagerage64 johnson is going too hand hardy his walkn papers sat nite ! :)
johnson is going to gas and hardy will submit or tko him
I don't see it going long enough for Rumble to gas. they're both going to stand in front of each and see who's got better hands kicks and chins. and I'm picking Rumble by 4-7 piece flurry
i just hope ring rust doesnt effect johson too much. if it doesnt, he should win by knockout. i think dan hardy is one of the most overrated fighters ever, or was atleast. all hes got is striking and hes not even that great at it. i think gsp, alves, kampman, condit, and johnson all have better stand up than him and are also better thn him every where els. i hope johson sends hardy to strikeforce or bamma.
Hardy for the WIN.
Damn some welterweights are HUGE. Another reason why guys under 5'10" should go to leightweight lol.
Like both these guys, hope Hardy wins but this is a really tough fight to take after his last loss. Hardy can win if he keeps his chin protected and doesn't get sloppy but Rumble's a huge dude at 170.
I understand why people don't like Paul Taylor and Bisping, but can't see why anyone dislikes Hardy. He's a great guy and a great ambassador to the sport. Opinions about his level and style are fine of course but hating him just shows your own bad character.
