Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Dan Hardy Not Concerned With Markham’s Power

(Props: MMA Mania)

Remember when Rory Markham told us that he thinks he’s the hardest hitter in the UFC’s welterweight division?  Well, his opponent at UFC 95, Dan Hardy, doesn’t seem too worried about it in this video from the UK’s Telegraph.  He doesn’t plan on letting Markham hit him with any clean shots.  Which, as game plans go, is a pretty good one.  Why doesn’t every fighter just do that?

Talking with The Mirror, Hardy was slightly less gentlemanly with regards to Markham:

“Markham is an aggressive fighter and he likes to brawl but he has said I have no power. When I drop him with my jab he’ll realise the power I have.”
Taking a moment to reflect, Hardy added: “Maybe I’ll just use my right hand and put him to sleep faster.”
“If I close my eyes and throw a punch in any direction I reckon I’ll hit him in the face.”

Seriously, Dan?  Any direction? 

Anybody else seeing Fight of the Night potential in this one?  As much as we all like to bitch about how weak the UFC cards are when they go across the pond, this fight could make up for the lack of a meaningful main event.  I just don’t see how this one ends without someone asleep on the mat. 

So who you got?  Will Hardy be celebrating at the pub with some fish and chips after this one, or will we get to see Markham knock another dude out cold and then walk away like he’s a little disappointed it ended so quickly?

@ Bullet tooth
You really need to take Dan Hardy's penis out of your mouth. Once you've accomplished that then maybe you can work on your jealousy issues with America and the freedom's that we had the balls to take, unlike your self. Go back to your fish and chips, shitty weather and "foot ball". By the way faggot, no body gives a shit about soccer just like no body in UK cares about baseball so whats the point man? To each his own, if football gets your lil pale dick hard than fantastic, no need to tell us what sports you find cool enough, no one cares. By the way your lingo is hilarious, you sound like an angry inbreed sheep hearding old hag. Learn something new cuse words like "mincer", "spaker" and my personal favorite "tree swinger with piles". What the hell are you talking about dude? Get some sunshine cuse your depressing ass doesnt make any sense. Rory Markham knocks out Dan Hardy's mincey faggot ass in the 1st round. Did you understand me now?
BULLET TOOTH TONY- February 15, 2009 at 9:57 am
what a mincer yr national sport is baseball thats primary school shit for girls here.and yr football is pure gay hahaha.and my reasons use yr hands have the cheek to call it football and our REAL english football soccer.

4.the proof is in the pudding you spaztics who else plays it errrrrrrrrr thats it no one you cunt .
5.they actually act tuf hahaha.
god that teeth shit is old man we have toothpaste uno but you probly have never seen yr dick because yr so fucking fat try looking for it on yr head if your voice changes one day and you go blind you really are a dick head.might wanna buy a braille keyboard.its not all bad you won't be able to see smack heads drill yr mum for yr big macs.

We will fix the diet, if you Brit's fix your crooked-ass teeth!!! Stick with football.
pwkilla- February 14, 2009 at 11:19 am
Jesus Christ man c'mon!!!!! Hardy hasn't fought anywhere near the competiton Rory has. That's not the main point though. Hardy is heavily down-playing Markham's accuracy and power. Rory will knock the Brit's head into the 5th row. Markham by ko--2nd round.

There sure are a lot of comments on here from know-nothing idiots who didn't know who Hardy was until this post.

Hardy will pick Markham apart. The difference in striking ability between these two is measurable only in light-years.

This *ucking guy...why don't you piss Markham off some more before you step into the ring with a killer. Like poking a tiger with a stick.

Bloody idiot.

Markham is going to knock this fool out. I hope Rory shaves that douche bags head while's he's out unconscious with a caved in face. Hardy, hope them fish and chips fit through a wired up jaw otherwise its blender and straw time for you buddy.

"Dan Hardy not concerned with Markham's power"

Armfarmer not concerned with Markham's power, Markham, or Dan Hardy.
