Five-time Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (19-2 MMA, 14-2 UFC) wants to right a career wrong when he meets Dan Hardy (23-6 MMA, 4-0 UFC) at UFC 111.

The last time St-Pierre faced a massive underdog, he lost his title. He bought into his own hype and underestimated "The Ultimate Fighter 4" winner Matt Serra. He ended up on the wrong end of a TKO at UFC 69.

Not this time. Or so he says.

The only thing I find funny about this whole situation is Hardy training with Serra. Like the upset ability is going to rub off on him? Or is he going to teach him to land a lucky punch (not to take anything away from Serra)?

Exactly, what can Serra tell him that will help him. If Serra couldnt do it himself, how can he show someone else how to beat GSP besides "Trow a ova-hand right Hawdy dats how you beat Gowage"

Something alot of people don't know... Matt Serra's head gives on the power to see through walls. Now what Dan Hardy needs that for, I am not sure....

Hardy was not exactly spoilt for choice when looking for a training partner who has experienced beating GSP was he.

Alot of people don't understand that a camp with great guys does NOT mean success. Every fighter is different and if he thought Longo and Serra could give him something he could benefit from then why question it? I think he could do really well with serra and longo. He is an arm puncher but he is a puncher and if he improved his technique he would be amazing. And longo knows his ****. I know there are alot of haters but facts are facts. I don't think he will be able to beat GSP but I can see where he is coming from.

i was watching the hardy/davis fight the other day and i was really looking at his game closer than ever. that fight wasn't really that long ago and after watching that fight it made me realize how far hardy has to go before hes in the same league as GSP. I'm expecting a domination by GSP, while before i was thinking hardy was gonna bring something to the table. neither the Davis fight or Swick fight was impressive
