"Welcome to England Carlos. I'm gonna knock you out, stamp your passport, and send you back home. He's gonna step in there thinking he can fight me like he has fought everybody else, and I'll hit him one time and change his mind - if he's still awake. I could beat him any day of the week, whenever, wherever. I don't see anything in his game that concerns me. He's not gonna hurt me with his striking, if he even lands a punch. He's scrappy and he's wild. I could close my eyes and throw a punch in any direction and it would still hit him in the face. He needs to be sitting down with his coach and figuring what else he can do for a career. This is the top of the ladder, this is as far as he goes, send some job applications out for something else."
"The Outlaw" (via ESPN.co.uk) continues to crank up the anger, and trash talk, for his pivotal welterweight showdown with Carlos Condit at UFC 120, which will go down from the O2 Arena in London, England, this Saturday (Oct. 16) on Spike TV. Hardy plans on giving "The Natural Born Killer" his pink slip and a map to the unemployment office in front of a pro-Limey crowd, but is he posturing now and paying for it later? And if Dan Hardy is at "the top of the ladder," then where does that leave Fitch, Koscheck and even Shields? How about Alves? Rankings, please.
