"The thing about this sport is, there are so many variables that go into it. He did beat me. And if I would have won then I would have been the No. 1 contender, so you can look at it that way. But just because he won that fight, I don't think that means he deserves a title shot. He's only had three fights in the UFC and he's only had one finish. He hasn't had the same road that a lot of the top welterweights in the UFC have. Even though he beat me, I have to say he doesn't deserve it. If he thinks he does, I'm sorry, but he's wrong."

p.s. stop cryin already Swick..i'm starting not to like this guy for more than just this reason...

Doesnt really matter what road he took. Swick stood in the middle of it and got smashed. Yes there are others who may deserve it more but he was the only one in the picture who hadnt already lost to GSP, so thats the way it goes.

Get over it Swick.

Hardy just can't gain any respect. I like Swick but he is still just an Anderson Silva wannabe, I was real surprised when he dominated Saunders, Hardy deserves a little respect, he's not Paul Daley, he's a well rounded fighter with heavy hands and a solid chin, he in my opinion is the most technically talented fighter out of all the British fighters right now.

This happens all the time. I remember Rampage saying he didn't deserve a title shot against Chuck but was offered the fight anyway. It's about money boys and Hardy will sell alot of PPV's in the UK.

Sorry, but I'm totally on Swick's side here. Don't get me wrong, I like Hardy, he's a great fighter, but the win over Swick was lack-luster. St. Pierre is gonna to treat him the same way BJ Penn OWNED Diego Sanchez. And Diego is also one of the top lightweights! I just think people only dislike Swick because he's not a big welterweight. After Hardy loses, I really hope they set up Hardy vs Fitch....I'm very curious how that fight would end.

With Hardy on his back and Fitch punching him in the face.

Give it a few fights and Hardy won't even be top ten.

You can only tell if someone deserves a title shot when the fight the champion. When they do well and/or win it means they deserve it..no doubt.

Guys like Fitch and Alves hung in there and showed they deserved a shot because they fought there heart out...we'll see how Hardy does..
