Dan Hardy - like to fight Matt or BJ
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVkl7...1&feature=fvwp

Dan talking about his recent loss and predicting the GSP V Kos fight - makes a couple pof funny comments.

Also - only AFTER PRESSED says that he it would be an honour to fight Matt Hughes or BJ Penn.

Hope he comes back strong.

:laugh: he's not quite ready for Hughes or Penn yet I dont think....but he might get his wish granted if he does well this year.

He survived 25 minutes with GSP, something that Matt failed to do in his last 2 fights with GSP and BJ Penn failed to do in his last fight. I'd give him a legitimate shot against either fighter.

At Welterweight...he stands a chance against Penn...but I wouldnt take that lightly...if he falls he'll be submitted. British Fighters have no backgrounds in ground fighting...everything for that is learned from the commencement of MMA training, not a specific discipline...this means any ground tricks...and Penn has too many of them, will probably work.

As for Matt Hughes...you know...on the feet Dan Hardy has an advantage...however, if Hughes gets him to the ground he's likely to stay there....and with his strength Matt Hughes would pull off a decision, presuming that Hardy made no errors on the ground...if he makes an error, it is because of Experience as much as skill that Matt Hughes would be able to take advantage and get a submission.

I know it sounds strange...but Dan Hardy is more likely to beat those considered present day contenders...then those who either were contenders, or who are former champions...regardless of whether they are contenders now. Experience counts...and a staunch Wrestler, or good BJJ guy is not going to do Dan Hardy any good....and he has a lot to loose...if he looses vs either because of their style, people will hold it against him as a lack of his skill and he wont get the chance to fight higher tier, with styles that are better matched.

If you are not supremely well rounded, then you need to pick and choose to make it...or put off the stylism clashes until your experience alone can equal well rounded.....Guys like Hughes and Penn are groundsmen primarily...and unlike GSP, they are less afraid to committ and more likely to finish.

Now...I would NEVER suggest Hardy Vs Hughes....but Hardy Vs Penn in a year IF Hardy is still excelling, and Penn is tiering with the Division. :)

Not a chance, Matt will take him down at will, and BJ will do the same and out box him.
Cant really guage how 2 fighters will match up by a single common fighter.
Hardy is a GOOD fighter, but not on that level yet.

I think he would present a good challenge - would like to see him fight either.

I'd love to watch him fight Kos.

I think if he fought Kos it would be like watching the Paul Daley fight but if he fought Matt I believe it would be a closer match with Matt subbing him.

I love me some Dan Hardy, I can't wait to see his next fight and see what he brings to the cage!!
