Given he's a friend and training partner of Georges St-Pierre, middleweight Nate (The Great) Marquardt may not be the most objective judge of GSP's next title challenger.

But Marquardt isn't expecting much of English welterweight Dan (The Outlaw) Hardy.

"I think Georges is going to kill him," Marquardt told The Canadian Press on Friday.

I've got to agree. If Hardy doesn't land something in the opening minute he'll be taken down and smashed.

People are forgetting that GSP was taken out by Matt Serra. Hardy definitely has a punchers chance if he can hurt GSP early and take him out of his game plan. GSP could be overlooking Hardy like he did to Serra.

No one is forgetting anything. We're going by more recent GSP fights where has has absolutely dominated everyone including Serra in a rematch. If GSP does something wrong it will be fighting too safely against someone he can smash.

Anyone in MMA has a "puncher's chance" going into a fight. I do not understand the point of people pointing it out every time since it's not like it's debatable or mentioning anything about the specific fight.

Although, what is debatable is who is the favorite?
In which everyone (surely you too) would agree GSP.

I would disagree. Usually the term 'puncher's chance' only applies to good strikers. You would not apply the term to someone who is really good wrestler or bjj guy.

What I was implying was I don't think anyone is ignoring the fact that Hardy could perhaps get the KO. It is just that no one has mentioned it because everyone realizes that "GSP nullifying Hardy's striking game with his relentless takedowns" is the more likely scenario to play out.

Mentioning what would happen 99 out of 100 times is better then mentioning what would happen 1 out of 100 IMO.

Sorry I misunderstood when you said puncher's chance.

I think GSP will destroy him too BUT I also feel Hardy has a chance to KO GSP. The Matt Serra fight can not be forgotten. GSP was doing the chicken dance. Serra didn't let him recover and finished him off. GSP can be dazed. It could be a great fight...or it could be a GSP domination. I would put my cash on Georges.

well considering that alves couldnt KO GSP.

its kinna hard to fathom hardy even getting close enough to land a big shot.

i see GSP doing exactly what he did to alves.and that is constantly pressuring hardy with takedowns and effective GnP.which in turn will totally take hardy out of his element.

hardy has never fought someone on the level that GSP is.there is a reason he is the UFC WW champion and nobody else is
