Dan Hardy calls out Brock Lesnar: 'I think he should give me some of his five million'

Brock Lesnar already has a sword on his chest, and now he's got a target on his back to go with it.

The former UFC heavyweight champion and Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 coach was named as the top earner in mixed martial arts by ESPN the Magazine, raking in a cool $5.3 million for his efforts inside the Octagon.

And you can imagine how the rest of the Zuffa roster feels after getting that kind of news.

If you can't, head over to Dan Hardy's Twitter to get an idea of what the former UFC welterweight number one contender is saying about the pasty pay scale and his desire to get a piece of it.

"The Outlaw" is even willing to take it by force:

"I think Brock Lesnar should give me some of his 5.3 million he has earned from MMA. I'd be more than happy to fight him for it too."

After stringing together four straight wins inside the Octagon, Hardy was upended by division champion Georges St. Pierre in their UFC 111 title fight just over a year ago.

A surprise knockout loss to Carlos Condit would follow at UFC 120 last October and Anthony Johnson continued the downward spiral by taking the slugger down and controlling him for the better part of three rounds at last month's "Fight Night" event in Seattle.

Hardy knows what he needs to do in order to get himself back into the win column, or to at least keep the fans entertained enough to warrant him sticking around. He needs a gamer who isn't afraid to stand and trade or just flat-out brawl for fifteen minutes straight no matter what the cost.

Chris Lylte is ready to oblige. How about Lesnar? Anyone interested in a Japanese-style open weight freak show fight?

Anyone?
