Dan Hardy: 'I was ready for a good fight and got caught with my hands down'

Quoteworthy:

"That’s not the way it was planned. I came in good shape, I was ready for a good fight and I thought I was doing alright. I got caught sleeping, I got caught with my hand down. It’s the way it goes, that’s why it’s a sport. (When asked if he regretted trash talking) No I don’t. I say all those things partly to entertain myself and partly because I mean it. I am coming in planning on winning every fight [but] 2010 wasn’t my year."

Coming off a disappointing knockout loss in front of his hometown fans in London, Dan Hardy says he simply got caught. With about 33 seconds left in the first round, "The Outlaw" and Carlos Condit threw hooks with bad intentions at the same time, the only difference was Carlos landed and Hardy took a nap. With a unanimous decision loss to George St. Pierre and a knockout loss to the "Natural Born Killer," Hardy finds himself in a tough spot in the UFC's welterweight division, going winless (0-2) in 2010. Do you think Hardy can bounce back from losing two straight this year or will 2011 be just as bleak for "The Outlaw?"
