This is old news, broseph. Either way, it's a good move for Hardy.There's just a lack of signifigant gyms and coaches in the UK, especially ones that specialize in Hardy's weaker areas. Hopefully both Nelson and Hardy benefit from this move! WAR OUTLAW!

I still think one of the best moves that Hardy could make would be to train with Liddell at the Pit. Liddell could help Hardy nullify his 2 largest glaring weakness right off the bat, and those are TDD, and of course getting up once he is taken down. Being that their styles are so similar, Hardy could learn a ton of new tricks from Liddell. One way or another, improving his BJJ with Nelson as a "just in case I end up on my back" kind of thing will do him no good if he can't defend the take down in the first place. Then its not a just in case, it's more of an inevitability. I just don't think that training with Nelson is going to fix his holes any time soon. He needs to fix his holes very very quickly if he wants to keep his spot on the UFC roster. I think he needs to train with top notch wrestlers if he wants to really fix his problems. Hell, train with Askren! That sounds like a win-win to me. Askren can really help Hardy improve his TDD, and Hardy can help develop Askren's striking that way he can actually finish someone for a change!
