Georges St-Pierre (19-2 MMA, 13-2 UFC) will put his welterweight title on the line against British challenger Dan Hardy (23-6 MMA, 4-0 UFC) at the as-yet-unannounced event, according to a report by AOL FanHouse.

The New Jersey event is expected to take place at the Prudential Center, which was home to UFC 78 in November 2007, and presumably would be dubbed UFC 111.

i don't think that's the case at all. Hardy is 4-0 in the UFC against some very good opponents. he took out a very crafty veteran in Gono in his debut. then he absolutely flattened Rory Markham. after that he tooled Marcus Davis. most recently he beat down Mike Swick, a guy who was 9-1 in the UFC before that fight and was on the cusp of a title shot himself. Hardy has earned his title shot.

i'm so excited for this UFC now. i'll definitely be there to watch GSP defend his title

No. That's ridiculous.

Hmm I guess I am a slight hater then I dunno. I just dont really think Dan Hardy is ready for a title shot. I wish him the most luck possible as I think he will need it for GSP. Regardless I was just wondering how everyone else felt. Suppose I am out in left field then. No worries. ^_^

i dont think he's earned his shot either, i dont think he's getting the shot cause hes a brit, just cause there is no1 else, i hate to see guys get title shots without W's against the elite in their division, IMO to earn a shot at any title in any division you should have at least 1 W against some1 ranked in the top 5

I think Swick was in the top 5, in fact he was number 1or 2 contender. So going on your statment you agree that Hardy earned his shot
