Is Dale Hartt (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) the future of MMA?

Hartt will not bring an impressive amateur wrestling resume to his bout with Shannon Gugerty at UFC Fight Night 14 this Saturday night. There will be no discussion of Hartt's Brazilian jiu-jitsu world titles -- no talk of any highlight-reel knockouts in Muay-Thai.

Yet the 29-year-old Hartt told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he has been focused on MMA since its beginning.

"I watched the first UFC, and ever since then all I've wanted to do is mixed martial arts," Hartt said. "I trained in Florida before I started training in Bangor, (Maine), with Marcus (Davis). I did Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and I did Muay-Thai. I wrestled a little bit. But everything I did, I did because I wanted to fight MMA. I never wanted to be a jiu-jitsu guy. I never wanted to be a Muay-Thai guy. I always wanted to be an MMA guy."

I like Dale's story...I hope he does well in his debut. He's seems to be a guy that could grow into a fan favorite.

So did I.

When I don't know either guy, and only one has a photo, I usually pick the guy with the photo.

Dale sounds like he might be a tough guy down the road, but he did say some wierd things in his interview:

"If someone from the Olympic gymnastics team would have been there, I think they would have asked me to go to the Olympics," Hartt said. "I was in the parking lot, and I was doing back handstands and flips, and all kinds of crazy [expletive] I've never even seen before. I'm telling you, it was amazing the athletic endeavors I was undertaking in this parking lot -- all while still staying on the cell phone."

"I'd like to stay a little bit more relaxed and a little bit smoother than I normally am," Hartt admitted. "I hope Shannon Gugerty's not reading this, but I'm kind of a tank. It's kind of my nature. They call me 'Dale Monster' in training. I'm just like 'Forward.' "

"I'm kind of a weird guy," Hartt admitted. "I always known I'm a weird guy, but this has just accentuated that for me. I'm not really nervous, and that actually makes me nervous. I'm nervous about not being nervous. I'm worried that all of a sudden, I'm going to be standing there at the gate, and all of a sudden this huge wave is going to hit me and I'm going to be like, 'Holy [expletive], I'm fighting in the UFC.'"

"I'm going to try my best, and I'm not making any promises here, to have that nervous energy empower me to perform," Hartt said. "Empower me to give me strength, speed and hellacious pain endurance."

He talks a good game, but Shannon has more experience, and he's at a good camp that has guys like KJ Noons, Brandon Vera, and Dean Lister. I just don't see him coming out on top.
