Just wondering who you guys think will win. Most people I've talked to think Johnson's gonna get the KO easy, but I think Hardy will frustrate him and take a hard-fought decision. Then again, if you can't tell from my avatar, I might be a bit biased.

The quicker guy is going to win. Not faster, but quicker.

The stronger wrestler is going to win. Johnson doesnt like to get hit and once Hardy hits him once, Johnson is going to go for the takedown's and win a decision.

Rumble by KO via being the more powerful, quicker and faster striker... and better wrestling.

Johnson. Not sure how yet though

Johnson by TKO/KO. I think he's just a bit quicker, and has the ability to keep it on the feet (not that Hardy will want to take it to the mat anyway.) He has the KO power to put Hardy down, and the speed to get to Hardy before Hardy gets to him.

Either way, this should be an awesome standup war, and i am really looking forward to it.

hard pick
A lot of assumptions

Will the long layoff hurt and give aj some cage rust

How will hardy come back from a devasting ko??

Will the weight loss affect AJ. Will he make weight

With hardy back against the wall. Will he come with a plan or come in wanting the knockout out

I have it pegged already for fight of the night

After seeing Hardy get Ko'd by Condit, Im inclined to think Rumble can do the same.

The way I see it..

Johnson won't make weight.. They will ask Hardy if he still wants to fight or call it off, and Hardy will say to go ahead with the fight, which will be a huge mistake, and when I say huge I mean literally.. Come fight time Johnson will tower over Hardy, and end up knocking him out cold..

It's not that he doesn't like getting hit, it's that he fears the eye poke, which seems to happen almost every fight. He walked right through some solid punches from Koscheck, and was beating the sh*t out of him on the feet until the eye pokes came along.

Rumble is just too big for Hardy. I think Hardy will start off aggressive and start winning only to be caught by a big punch from Johnson. After that it'll be all Rumble.

Yeah, something like that....


I prefer Johnson over Hardy from a fan's standpoint, but I do think Hardy is the more polished striker currently.
I would like to see Johnson get the win but I'm thinking Hardy will (T)KO Johnson.

I sure hope Johnson proves me wrong....

Hopefully Hardy wins so he can fight Kos next, and lose
