"He knows what's coming. He knows there's a left hook with his name on it and at some point in the 25 minutes I'll land it. I'm expecting him to take me down. At some point in the fight I'll end up on my back and I'll fight from it. When you're fighting GSP you accept at some point you're going to get taken down, but now GSP has to expect that when he fights me he's going to get hit in the face over and over again. I'm always the underdog. Every fight I go into nobody thinks I'm going to win. Even after I beat GSP and take the belt, it's going to take four or five fights to prove I'm the champion. I'm going to go in there and do everything I can to take the belt off him and whatever happens, so be it, but I'm confident I can win."
Number one welterweight contender Dan Hardy is both cocky and confident heading into his main event fight against UFC 170-pound champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 111 on March 27 in Newark, NJ. "The Outlaw" is fresh of a unanimous decision victory over fellow surging welterweight Mike Swick at last month's UFC 105: "Couture vs. Vera" event in Manchester. Does Hardy, who only has one finish in four Octagon appearances, have the skill set to beat "Rush?" Or does he simply need a full gas tank and a "left hook with GSP's name on it?" Opinions please.
