Dan Hardy interviews for TapoutRadio.com
Well... he's not invincible. Someone has to do it sometime, and Dan's boxing and power could do it.
"Hit by a bus" was the wrong choice of words when discussing Big Nog tho.
ala Matt Serra. I think it would be very interesting if Dan HArdy won. People would be lining up to have a go at him. Love GSP but this would be HUGE if he pulls it off.
Dan is good, but I don't know if he has the staying power to remain at the top like a GSP or someone else, supposing he is able to pull off the upset.
Hardy doesnt even deserve a title shot, it should be koscheck or fitch fighting for the title
hardy to get the W 4 sure. come on brits
fitch yeah, but kos cant get it when he just only two fights past the thiago ko. dont think anyboy's any real competition for gsp tho
u really do chat some shit m8
who has hardy beaten to deserve a title shot, hes not even top 5 welterweight in the world, he beats swick n he gets a title shot? come on, he beat swick by decision not even impressive, fitch deserves way more, i guess fitch is going to get it after gsp ko's this fool
i think he could sell fights a bit better than gsp because of his mouth, too bad his skill level isnt up there with his mouth yet
great interview, kinda surprised that hardy doesnt sound as big a tube as i thought.lookin forward to daley n koscheck, but not so much hardy vs gsp, given i dont see it getting past the first
I don't think Hardy will KO GSP. He's too careful after the "Serra Incident". I don't think GSP is a KO artist - more of a G&P. I say GSP in 3 (and not just 'cuz it rhymes.
He is obviously trying to get into GSP's head, saying things like he is not confident like BJ Penn, and so on. I don't particularly care for the head games, but I guess he feels like he needs some kind of edge to help him.
And I will try to nail Kate Beckinsale. Our chances are about the same.
Gonna be hard to KO GSP when Hardy's on his back getting smothered.
to all who write that dan hardy saying this bullshit, is hardly boring the attitude towards the fight, everyone talks about the difficult climb and the octagon and do, but I respect the stance dan hardy confident that for this fight, and will not be surprising if lockout GSP, which I think is the title but threatened after Lesnar, GSP did not think an out of series, just great and determined fighter, and lyoto, aldo, and strength of Lesnar, single out the serie is arguably the UFC Anderson Silva, yes this is the most complete of all time, the skin in football, basketball jordan, bolt in athletics. the rest are great fighters
GSP lacks confidence!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????
We'll see if he lacks it on fight day. GSP doesn't talk too much; he's a smart fighter who is keenly aware of the legacy he'll leave...Like Fedor, Cain, Fedor and all the greats, he'll do the real talking in the cage, his own way...
that guy knows he's gonna loose,he's making himself better by talking trash.
talk in talk,when he's gonna get his ass whooped he's gonna shut up.
I have spent a lot of time not liking Dan Hardy, but it is cool how one interview can begin to change an attitude towards a fighter. I dont know if i am a "fan" yet but he was pretty cool in that interview. He aint ready for GSP but he has at least a punchers chance. If he loses he should fight Paulo Tiago and get some experience on the ground.
Im not sayin that he will when but if hardy has been workin on his takedown defense then he has a great chance at wining if it becomes a stand up battle.
O yea just sayin he said "try" atleast hes not like alot of other fighters that say im going to knock out my opponet like Brett Rogers sayin he was guna KO Fedor its possible but dont say you are unless you are.
"If I get taken down ,I'm gonna want to get it back to the feet so I can beat the fake tan off him."
I love Hardy's humor. I don't think he'll win but it will be a good fight.
Hardy is the man, I like him alot.
where i heard that one before im going to knock GSP out!
o yeah Bitch gay penn! was saying that shit and got his ass beat!
also a true knock out artist Thiago Alves said the same!
and got drop in round 3 by GSP!
a lot of people forget that GSP was a stand up fighter!
remember UFC 48 , UFC 65! even UFC 87
he drop fitch a few times there!
Dans confident and does have a chance, but I wish all the fighters could look at MMA objectively with due respect like Randy Couture.
But with all the recent self promotion, its getting farther away from that.
Fedor and Randy are the 2 classiest fighters on Earth.
thats all hardy has is a strikers chance really
as a brit i am routing for hardy, but GSP is a BEAST! hardy doesnt really have any chance in my opinion
I am sure Hardy will Try to KO GSP, I mean isn't everyone?
Randy and Fedor are super classy.
Hardy is a good fighter but not a worthy contender for this title. GSP is goona steamroll him.
Even though I would like to see Hardy win, I just don't see it happening. Hopefully GSP stands for atleast a few minutes just so its more exciting than the fight at UFC 100.
If hardy keps this stood up he wil have a good chance but i cant see GSP letting him punch n no one in that division can really stand up to his take downs. I reckon GSP will win this on the ground but hope hardy wins it for the UK!!!! :D
Hardy is NOT Bj Penn, or Alves, last time i checked anyway....I'm a big fan of the rough house fighters and have followed them (mainly Daley and Hardy) for a long time, since way before they were in the UFC anyway. I'm completely aware of just how good GSP is in every area believe me but i'm also very aware of what Dan is capable of (which is a damn sight more than Matt Serra is) and i believe he has the necassary tools to get the job done, i also really think he is a bad match-up for GSP. It's about time we had a champ with some charisma........
GSP was a stand up fighter but he change that since his lost against Serra.He now have a safer way to win,the "take Down".
It's unfortunate cause he was good,maybe not the most powerfull but very fast and accurate.
I've alot of respect for GSP but since his lost against Serra,is fight are kinda boring,he have all the tools but he choose the"easy way out",take down,take down,take down.
To me,he didn't beat Alves,he just neutralize him.
For is fight against Hardy,he probably gonna feel quite confident so we might have a nice stand up fight like the one against Fitch.
Anyway,good luck to both!!!!!
Methinks you doth protest too much Dan.
GSP 2nd round by rape.
I think Hardy should of had one more fight b4 GSP remeber Kampmann n Swick were susposed to fight and the winner gets GSP. Swick pulled out Daily TKO Kampmann while he was still standing, and Hardy beat Swick, Logic dictates Hardy VS Daily winner get GSP. But i guess UFC had to make a WW title fight since the belt hasnt been defended since UFC 100, and after the brits get done sorting this out Please UFC get back Nick Diaz I believe he has real potential to beat GSP.
Dan Hardy has a great chance in this fight IMO. I am a massive GSP fan also, but you can't write anyone's chances off until the fat lady sings.
And a word to all of the people who diss the guy - I'm not sure how many of you are aware, but Dan Hardy spends a lot of time trying to change the narrow minded opinion of non-MMA fans - he is a great vioce for the sport, and I for one respect that.
I dislike GSP so I hope Dan beats him silly. GSP is a good fighter, but I think Dan's boxing is sharp, and on point. With has freak strength, and very good standup as well as ground game. I really want Dan to beat his ass, as punishment for beating Bj Penn...
