"I want to thank Dan Hardy for this trophy. It means a lot. Coming runner-up in a press conference is pretty cool. I just want everyone to know that I'm giving this right back to him after the fight. My corner guys will carry it to the Octagon. But I'll keep it for now."

Lol! Nice to see both guys taking all the pre fight smack talk in jest. I dont know who to root for in this fight, they are my two favourite WWs. Hopefully itll be a fun little scrap either way.

For a long time I wasn't sure what to think of Hardy. He seemed to be trying way to hard to be the Chad Johnson of the UFC, but now I can safely say he has won me over.

He clearly doesn't really think he is God's gift to the sport and is playing mind games just to have some fun with the fans and his opponents. I don't see any harm in it and it keeps things a little less serious.

With that being said, Swick is still the man

I like Dan Hardy in the underdog role on Saturday night. I know Swick is tough, and this is gonna be a battle to remember, but I think Hardy is gonna come out of it the victor.

Yet another reason to like Dan.

I'm looking forward to this one...

It is kind of funny. I'm glad Swick sees the humor in it and didn't get all butt hurt.

I'm glad swick isn't letting it get to him. No ill will against hardy but I can't wait for Swick to give him the trophy back after he wins.

Like swick says, would you rather be runner up at a press conference or runner up in the fight for the title?

you pretty much summed ti up. Hardy is dumb he knows marketablility counts and he is selling his product.....the "OutLaw"! I like it. I mean look at Tom Lawler, his antics ass of late have been great.
