How to keep your UFC job, by Dan Hardy


It was recently revealed that the UFC intends to cut 100 fighters from the roster, starting with an initial round of 16. Fighters with an uncompelling style have been released after a single los

By contract, Dan Hardy was not released after four consecutive losses (and is currently on a two-fight wn streak). In an interview with ProMMA Radio, Hardy offers his opinion.

“I know the UFC are getting rid of a bunch of guys," said Hardy. "And I know that they are disappointed with the way that people are stepping into the Octagon. Maybe it’s just a shake-up, maybe they are just trying to show people that we are in the entertainment industry as well as a professional sport.

"When people pay a lot of money for a ticket they want to see a performance, and some people are coming to get a pay check and it’s kinda disappointing.”

Eeh , ok. And which of his fights did you find boring ? I haven't seen one boring fight which involves GSP , yes he does not finish fights but that don't make them boring.

Why should I care who is a draw and who isn't? It's not my money, it's Zuffa's. If you're a boring fighter I don't care what your name is or where you're ranked, I don't want to have to pay to see you. Rankings and names don't entertain me, good fights do.   Cindy

Yet they are currently showing the Hardy-Sadollah fight on Fuel where Hardy used takedowns to save his job while Florian-Anik praise his evolution....

I like Dan personally but I don't find his fight particularly exciting. Seems like I'm in the minority though.

Hopefully this will send a strong message to fighters to make them think twice before training with idiots like Greg Jackson.  Maybe fighters will realize Jackson is not the trainer to go with and he will fade away like a bad fart.

His last fight was terrible and his new found wrestling was horrible to watch

You should be an MMA judge, if you aren't already. Apparently the requirement is to be completely clueless. You are more than. qualified.

If I am paying 55 to watch a fight give me card full of Dan Hardy's all day versus the guys that will grind out a victory on the ground or stalling on the fence.
