                    <blockquote>

"He obviously didn't want to take any risks in the fight, fair enough. He's got a lot riding on the fight, that's fair enough. There's winning, and ‘winning’ and no disrespect to Georges, but that's not how I would want to win a fight. But he got the job done and that's why he's got the belt and I haven't."

"All trash talking aside now cause obviously the fight's done and out of the way, and I'll be saving it now for my next fight against him, but I did say it in the build up to the fight that he's not a fighter. He goes out there to win the fight, that's what he does."

"In my opinion, the way to win a fight is to go in there and you take it from your opponent. You beat it out of them, and that's how I always want to approach my fights. Some people are different and Georges approaches it like a professional athlete approaches a sport. He goes out there and does what he needs to do to win."

"At the end of the day, he's still an opponent and I do want to fight him again."

"People probably think I'm big headed by saying this, but before the fight, stepping in there, I was either like I'm going to knock him out, or I'm going to be completely overwhelmed by him, and realize I don't belong in there. But neither of those things happened. I didn't land that shot to stop the fight, but at the same time I didn't feel overwhelmed, I felt outpointed."

"All I need to do now is get back in the gym and get to work on those areas of the game and bring them up to speed. I don’t think the title's too far in the distance for me. I think I can get there and I can hold the belt and basically build a legacy in the sport. I'm just not quite there yet."


Read entire article...


 

Its insulting to GSP to claim he'd only win 9/10 against hardy

He's still bitching? Get over it Hardy.

lol, owned

I understand where Hardy is coming from, he took all those chances and risks in that fight......oh wait, he did nothing except try to survive....

GSP went for how many subs? How exactly was he being safe and not trying to finish? Ridiculous.

slamming -  GSP beats Hardy 11/10 times.  Even in a kick boxing match.


Agreed

Bad_Astronaut: Hardy is a shit talking pikey, not a mixed martial artist.

Dude is getting annoying

well the fact of the matter is that GSP won 7 rounds of a 5 round fight. Hardy should STFU before he makes himself look even more retarded and desprate.

Hardy's trying to keep his name in the press ... makes sense if he can get away with it, at least financially.

He should ask Jon Fitch if GSP is a fighter.

Is this guy still fuckin' talkin'?

 so he is basically saying that an athlete defeated a fighter. kind of obvious if you ask me.

he was completely and utterly overwhelmed - WTF is he talking about

If only Dan Hardy listened to Dan Hardy's advice.

What a retard.

waiting for uk trolls..

Please tell me he didn't say this without a hint of irony.

Dan your 15 min of fame is over. See ya in 9 months when you have your french Canadian baby because Georges ass raped you!!!!!!!!

Why is this news?

Didn't he say the same re-hashed bullshit before the fight?
