Dan Hardy: Koscheck and Fitch had their chance against GSP -- and they got beat up

Props: Top MMA News


"[Koscheck's] just bitching because I’m in this position and he’s not.  There are a lot of guys out there and I know Jon Fitch said a few things the other day as well.  Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and I’m sure those guys feel like they’re in a better position than me to contend for the belt, but they don’t know me and they don’t know what experience I’ve got and the fights I’ve come through to get to this stage.  They’ve all had their chances and we know how those fights ended.  Koscheck got beat up, Jon Fitch got beaten up, name it and GSP’s gone through them."

UFC welterweight number one contender Dan Hardy responds to criticisms directed towards him from certain members of the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) that perhaps called into question the legitimacy of his shot at Georges St. Pierre's 170-pound title. "The Outlaw" has assembled four straight victories inside the Octagon since his debut in 2008 and while he may have gotten his title shot by default, he's one of the few remaining eligible fighters within the division that hasn't already gotten the GSP stamp of disapproval. Anyone out there think Koscheck should have gotten another shot -- ahead of Hardy?
