Many fighters going into a match with current welterweight champ Georges “Rush” St. Pierre have all claimed they’ve got what it takes to dethrone the champ. Their confidence and gameplans were all for not as GSP lined em’ all up and knocked each one of them down. Dan Hardy claims he will triumph where others have failed, “if Matt Serra can beat him, then so could I.”
We will just have to wait and see till the fight goes down to see how well hardy does, but most fans are already siding with the champ GSP. When the fight was announced a lot of fans claimed he doesn’t even belong in the cage with GSP, claiming he is not at the same level as GSP.
Dan Hardy on GSP:
“To be honest, that’s not something I am too concerned with, as strange as it sounds. I’ve accepted that, at some point, he’s going to take me down. I’ve accepted that I’m going to be fighting off my back for some of the fight and I’m just going to work to get back to my feet and do what damage I can from my back. I don’t want it to become too much of an issue — defending the takedown — because I won’t throw like I do against anybody else. I don’t want to be holding back on any of my kicks and punches because, at the end of the day, that’s what is going to win me the fight. My intention is to go in there, throw hard, just like Matt Serra did, but obviously a little more technical — I’m a little quicker and more technical. I’ve got reach and weight on Matt Serra, so I can do exactly what he did but a lot better.”
