Georges St-Pierre might want to re-examine his choice of training partners for his upcoming UFC 137 bout with Carlos Condit on October 29. You would think he would be picking the brain of his friend and teammate Rory MacDonald, who was seven seconds away from upsetting the former WEC welterweight champ at UFC 115 before getting TKO’d by “The Natural Born Killer.” Instead, “Rush” is thinking outside the box and has brought in Dan Hardy, who hasn’t won a fight since 2009, to help him prepare for the only guy to have knocked “The Outlaw” out. Makes sense, right?

Yes since Hardy had experience striking with Condit dumbasses. He lost so training with him isnt valuable I guess, great logic.

It doesn't make a difference who GSP brings in. The fight will be the same either way, GSP will stand on the outside of Condit, jab, and go for takedowns in which he will get. GSP by decision.

i dont think its a mistake. hardy has more experience with condit than GSP. plus, theres nothing wrong with training with new people even if GSP already beat hardy. maybe hardy can rub off some of that KO power that GSP clearly lacks.

Not really true because GSP and Condit both train with Greg Jackson. I've no idea how closely they worked together but for sure getting Hardy in to work with is going to be beneficial. Often with GSP we see him drill one particular thing for a fight. Hardy is known for his left hook I wonder if GSP sees this as a valuble punch against Condit.

Hardy finally gets his chance to standd and bang with GSP without fear of being taken down.

Condit's arms are longer. Im not sure he can stand on the outside and jab.

GSP could play video games like Rampage did for his training camp against Jones and still dominant the entire fight.....GSP via one sided beatdown!

He could bring his game boy and play it in between rounds and still win in dominating fashion.
