That's the latest trash talk/rebuttal directed partly at AKA from Dan Hardy, lashing out at his critics (and AKA) who feel he doesn't deserve the next shot at GSP. And he even makes sure to get in a shot at "not-so-great" Nate Marquardt, who didn't impress Hardy with his loss a while back against Anderson Silva.

You gotta love Dan Hardy, he is quickly becoming one of my favorite fighters, he's just a warrior. He has got really good looking skills, I think it's a little soon, but there are plenty of others that have been rushed into title shots with out deserving them, what about that Couture guy?

nothing but the truth..Fitch hasn't improved..he still grinds out decision..Kos is 4-2 in his last 6..and Swick a good gatekeeper..nothing more nothing less..

I can't stand this guy. Or at least the person he shows to the media. Has he been respectful to any of his opponents yet? Not that I can think of. I can't wait to see GSP smash this little punk.

Marquardt also said that he didn't think Hardy deserved a shot at GSP...

I disagree about Fitch but pretty much agree w/ everything else he has said. Fitch's striking has improved even if he still wins the majority of his fights by decision.

I think Dan Hardy would get handled by Fitch in a 3 rd fight, but that's just my .02.

I don't have anything against any of the AKA guys, but they have no business saying Hardy doesn't deserve his shot... and everything Hardy said is true.

Kos has one sided losses??????

I beg to differ. Kos was winning the bout against Paulo Thiago and got caught with a lucky combo.

Thiago Alves fight was somewhat competitive but Kos got hurt pretty bad a few times. Plus he took that fight on 2 weeks notice. Lets see Hardy fight Alves.....

The fight with GSP...well its GSP. Kos even took him down and held him down at one point so you cant say Kos was dominated.
Georges out worked him for a decision.

I think Hardy will be humbled after a defeat to GSP. I dont think he'll have as much success as Kos did against GSP, or even Fitch.

I would love to see Hardy fight Kos, or Alves eventually. These guys are top competition. And if Hardy has words for Nate the Great, be my guest to fight Nate Marquardt lol

Love him or hate him he's doing a great job of marketing himself! Calling out Fitch is a bit low especially when he's on record saying he wishes him luck but he's right about Swick.
Kos is debatable an Nate had a point when he said he doesn't deserve a title shot but he's pretty safe considering Nate is probably the biggest MW behind Anderson so he'll never fight him ether.

In my opinion Hardy hasn't done enough to warrant a title shot but GSP has cleaned out a entire devision so he's the best of a bad bunch. I'd much rather see Kampmann or Thaigo fight but Hardy hasn't lost yet and he's a very marketable so why not give him a go.

You make some good points but Kampmann???? He just got man handled by a 1 dimensional Paul Daley.

Yes he has. He trashed talked Marcus Davies and Swick but that was mutual. He showed nothing but respect for Gono and saved his trash talk for Markham for after the fight, due the statement made about him not having any punching power.
