Georges St. Pierre will train with Dan Hardy for UFC 137 fight against Carlos Condit

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is calling on a former foe to help get him ready to rumble against Carlos Condit at UFC 137 on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dan Hardy, to be specific.

"The Outlaw" knows a thing or two about fighting Condit, as the two 170-pounders made hay while the sun shined at UFC 120 back in October 2010.

He also knows a thing or two about getting knocked clean out, which is what happened at the hands of "The Natural Born Killer" when they traded blows last year across the pond. The defeat to Condit was loss number two in his current four-fight skid, which makes Hardy's addition to the TriStar training camp an unusual choice.

Then again, St. Pierre said he was adding "intensity."

Hardy, who was submitted by Chris Lytle at UFC on Versus 5 just last month, struggled against the wrestling-based attack of Anthony Johnson prior to that in his UFC Fight Night 24 bout earlier this year.

In fact, he hasn't won a fight since taking a judge's decision from Mike Swick at UFC 109 back in 2009.

How about it fight fans, what do you make of the newest addition to the St. Pierre training camp? Can the talented but down-on-his-luck Hardy help "intensify" the daily operations? Or was this a miscalculation at a critical point in the "Rush" camp?

Opinions, please.
