“Taking nothing away from Dan Hardy. He’s a great, young prospect,” said the 31-year-old Fitch. “He’s got a bright future ahead of him, but there are guys that have put in more work than him. That’s my opinion. I don’t run the show.”

I'm sure he was asked for his thoughts. I doubt he was openly complaining.

I love GSP, But IMO Dan Hardy poses a BIG threat to him.

Fitch was asked about his thoughts during the interview and has a point, Hardy had done nothing to warrant a title shot in my and many others opinion. The guys at AKA, Black house and even HIT squad have every right to complain when a guy with two actual wins and two gifts of decisions is fighting for a title.
Fitch was classy about it though and hasn't resorted to the school yard tactics of Kos.

You can't get upset at Fitch for answering a question. That being said, anyone can make the case that Fitch is the number one contender. Since his loss to GSP he's undefeated. None of the wins were ended in a flashy manner, nor were any against the primary upper echelon of fighters, but undefeated is undefeated. If Fitch makes it throguh against Alves which I and the betting world believe he will, then he's without question the number one contender. In which case he will get another crack at GSP. The only way GSP loses to Hardy is if he takes the fight lightly like the first Serra fight.GSP is three times better in every aspect of the fight game when compared to Hardy. Did I mention my two favorite fighters are GSP and Fitch? LOL

Fitch may be right, he may not be...regardless, they need new opponents for GSP to fight or else we're just going to see GSP vs. Alves 2, Fitch 2 or Kos 2......

Fitch beats Hardy though, I'd put a good amount of $$ on that one.

I would say, Dan definitely had an easier road than most to the title. That Dan is considered the number one contender speaks more about the lack of talent in the division. It's been a long time since a 170lb prospect started making some waves.
