What has happened to my boy since his Championship fight with GSP? The first Brit ever to fight for a title.... He got dominated, but held his own and did better than Koscheck IMO

I used to love watching this boy yu know, had a sick knockout punch and one serious chin on him!! Since the GSP fight he's got smashed up by Anthony Johnson lol, lost to Chris Lytle in his last ever UFC fight and got knocked out by Carlos Condit....
He's goin down man, on one serious slippery slope! If he carries on Dana's gonna end up releasing him! Poor...

Sort it out Dan!

Theres a show about him showin his Lytle fight on Channel 5 in England right now....

He was a product of hype and image. Was never a very good fighter

Lorenzo said something to the effect of he isn't going to drop Hardy because he likes him. On his twitter.

Hardy is good. Just can't wrestle. And got knocked out by freak chance as they threw the same exact combination. Condit just kept his hand in the right position, while Hardy tried to turn it over. Result, Hardy goes down.

Yeah he probably kinda was still! He's always tryna sell his Outlaw shirts n bandanas, n has dat ****ery bright red mohawk lol. The geezers always laughing aswell, unless he's tired n gettin beat up. Was never a Very good fighter, but was a good fighter still... Good at stand up anyway...

The only thing poppin' with Hardy is his jaw every time he fights.

LMAO, I see where yur cumin from but he was never that bad b, he has been rocked a few times in his last 4 fights still, as have his opponents.
N he can't wrestle for ****, but he can take pain and get out of submissions okay normally...

the UFC gave him lots of easy fights to build up his record, now he's not getting easy fights. he'll never see another title shot but i bet he stays in the UFC for a long time

The ufc is letting him beat a few bums in small companys before they can feed him another bum or two so they can hype him back up so they can cash out on him on a British card to get clowned again against the next half decent fighter he fights. Seriously its disgusting. Dude should only have one win in the ufc against markham he's worse then Leonard Garcia with getting away with robberies because he's British and they need more British hypejobs. Just look at bisping he's fought two top 10 fighters and got schooled by Evans and destroyed by hendo.

I think yur spot on yu know Nates, but i never thought hewas that be bad to lose to Lytle and Johnson...
British MMA is fockin real poor, n Hardy even lost a few over here lol...
I don't even like Bisping, he's a minor n a jealous little biatch. Ross Pearson is the next British hype job. But i reckon Pearson will live up to it cos that boy is All Heart trust me!! Barboza will be the next big ting at Lightweight IMO, n did yu see the performance he put in against him? He'd get dropped with a heavy punch or kick, got straight back up n went on the front foot again toe to toe. That was a fockin sick fight man i swear down.
I think he'd smash Guillard, goin on his last performance, Diaz would struggle against him, so would Gomi.
He'll jump in the octagon with anyone, He loves it. He was smiling n laughin all through the Barboza fight, he's a fockin warrior. He was unlucky to lose that by split decision, should have been a draw at least...
English fighters, wrestling n ground game is so poor though, its ****ery

Hell yeah l don't got nothing but love for Pearson after the barboza fight his hands are nice! But not sure hell ever be top 5 tho. Brad pickett is freakin nuts too ha that's who needs to be the face of British mma. But yeah **** bisping haha most obvious protected fighter evet! Still trying to figure out how he never fought maia marquardt or sonnen who were the big three besides silva for a few.years. but I just hate him for one reason Coming outta tuf I liked him but then hamil whoops his ass and he gets the worse decision ever and bisping has the nerve to yell at him go back to wrestling. Hardys training with gsp now believe it or not so maybe he could do better but daley has always been my fav heir if only he had.takedown defense!

I doubt Ross is good enough for top 5 yu know, but he's gonna be in a few more exciting fights still. Maynard would smash him up, as would Edgar. If a Barboza rematch ever happened i think he would have learned a lot from their first fight and would be more of an aggressor (Barboza im talkin abwt).
Diaz and Gomi vs Ross would be sick fights, Gomi would suit him more than anyone i've mentioned but all these boys are ahead of Ross just now.
Bisping is a boring mother****er man, he's got a big mouth at times and he would never get in the octagon with with the big boys! For some reason he hates Chael, he will claim now that he'll never fight him 'cos hes a 'cheat', but he never would have fought him anyway, period. He just talks ****
I do love Paul yu know Nates, shame he ent in the UFC no more, he's back in the BAMMA ent he? :( Poor! I think he was fighting in Birmingham, England not to long ago, can't see Dana inviting him back to UFC still unfortunately.
I can't believe Dan is training with GSP! It won't do him any good though, just look at Okami trainin with Chael, i honestly thought he had a chance against Silva after learning this, but f*** me was i wrong Lmao

Demise, yu got some serious love for British combat sport Lol. Listen, we will never even scratch the surface of the UFC as it's so big in America and has been for years, Dana knows what he's doing by tryna hype up the Brits, to get more Brits interested in it.
But British boxing ent as far off yu know IMO, big step up for our boys still as theres hardly any on the international scene right now, whereas the Americans are all over it and experienced in big fights...
Just like MMA. Hardy's got a long way to go and a lot more fights to win to ever be a threat in UFC.

When did Mike Swick become a bum? I don't like him; really don't like him at WW. But when did he become a bum? When did Marcus Davis become a bum? He's a journeyman at least. No way a bum though.

The other dude he laid out. That could be considered a bum. Forget his name. :lol1:

Lytle isn't a bum. Journeyman as well at the least.

The only legit losses Hardy had in the UFC is GSP, Lytle, and Condit. Both dominant performances. One obvious and the other, can't deny a KTFO. Lytle got a legit submission.

Johnson is a big *****. He talked a whole lotta **** just to lay on Hardy. He is too big to be fighting WW just to lay on dudes. **** that guy. I mean, Hardy wanted to bang with the bigger dude and the bigger guy who is known for hands just wanted to lay on him. C'mon man.

I don't think he was that bad, he was just there at the right place at the right time, he wouldn't have been signed in the first place hadn't it been for the UFC needing British fighters for their UK Experiment. He also trash-talked his way into a match with Marcus Davis and when he won that fight he took all that momentum that Marcus had and that effectively put him on the map as a contender, then he fought a malnourished Swick who was supposed to finally get his title shot and when he won that fight the UFC was pretty much left without any real contenders for the Welterweight belt so they just gave him the title shot.

He is a decent fighter, has heart but he is just not at that level. And to be fair to him he did beat Davis and Swick who were contenders for the belt at the time.

Also. Watched a recent video of Hardy. He apparently was helping GSP prepare for Condit. Being invited to go up to Montreal and train with GSP.

Obviously before GSP was hurt but that is the most recent update about Hardy that I know of.

He's worse then Leonard.Garcia in my book. Hardys gift decisions got him a title shot.

You should re-watch the Swick and Davis fights then. Because those weren't gift decisions.

I will admit he over achieved but in no way did he get any gift decisions.

Hardy-Diaz is quite interesting..Nick's a bit too successful, but if he gets some losses. Skills make fights ya know. throwing hands is fun to see.
