UFC 105 "runner-up" Mike Swick laughs off sarcastic souvenir from Dan Hardy
by John Morgan on Nov 12, 2009 at 9:40 am ET
MANCHESTER, England Prior to his June bout with Marcus Davis, UFC welterweight Dan Hardy (22-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC) found himself engaged in quite the trash-talking battle with his opponent.

That hasn't been the case in the build up for his "UFC 105: Couture vs. Vera" main-card bout with Mike Swick (14-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC) at least until today.

In a good-natured poke at today's pre-fight press conference at MEN Arena in Manchester, Hardy handed Swick a souvenir of his trip to England: a runner-up trophy.

Hardy started the joke off with a bit of respect for his opponent.

"I'd like to thank Mike for giving me the opportunity to fight him because I've always enjoyed watching his fights, and I respect him a lot," Hardy said. "I think it's going to be a great fight."

Then came the punchline.

"I actually got Mike a little something so he didn't leave England empty handed just something to remember his journey by," Hardy said. "I got him a runner-up trophy just so he doesn't leave empty handed. I'm going to be busy after the fight answering questions and trying to make a gameplan for Georges St. Pierre."

Swick took the podium shortly after and proudly presented his prize. "Quick" also lived up to his nickname when it came time to issue a witty reply.

"I want to thank Dan Hardy for this trophy," Swick said. "It means a lot. Coming runner-up in a press conference is pretty cool, but I want everybody to know that I'm going to give this right back to him after our fight."

Swick said viewers of the Spike TV broadcast event can expect to see the trophy in his corner on Saturday night as he prepares to re-gift the souvenir.

"My corner guys will be carrying this to the octagon, but I'll keep it for now."

While I don't thhink either pose a problem to GSP. GSP v Hardy would be one of the biggest one sided maulings in MMA history

I'm jsut curious about the title of the post, to me it seems like Hardy won. I mean it was a good come back, but that's it, just a come back, whereas hardy's joke was a great idea. Anyways I think it will be pretty embarrasing if Swick wins and gives the trophy back to him in the octagon after the fight, could blow up on Hardy before all is said and done.

That is hilarious. I can't wait until the end of the fight to see Swick give it back to him.
