UFC Primetime Series to Feature GSP and Dan Hardy on Spike TV
Spike TV will be airing the first of a three part UFC Primetime Series on March 10th at 10:00 PM. The series will feature Georges St. Pierre, who is the current UFC welterweight champ and arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world, and Dan Hardy, the man who will be attempting to steal his glory at UFC 111.
The program was produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is expected to give an inside look at each fighters life and training regimen, and of course pump up and promote the fight as well. The series is expected to take us from GSP’s Tristar gym in Montrieal Canada to Nottingham England, where Hardy trains with the Rough House Team.
While the show is expected to tell the story of a compelling matchup between GSP and Dan Harcy, skeptics find it hard to believe that Hardy will be able to do much damage to GSP who has been on a very dominant six fight win streak since he defeated Josh Koscheck at UFC 74. While Hardy himself is carrying some of his own momentum with a seven fight win streak, his highlight wins against Marcus Davis and Mike Swick hardly compare to the caliper of opponents GSP has been taking out such as Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves and BJ Penn.
None the less, UFC Primetime is sure to show some interesting things about each fighter and is sure to make you want to see the fight that much more. I will be interested to see if Hardy tries to pull his usual smack talk routine against the ever professional and humble GSP who is not likely to return verbal fire. Who knows maybe GSP will play along this time.
