UFC 111: St. Pierre vs. Hardy Fight Previews
Lesnar, who's scheduled to return to action this summer.
Mir might need every bit of muscle mass and wrestling that he can gain to beat Carwin. This guy has been man-handling opponents in an unprecedented manner. Not only is he undefeated at 11-0 but no fighter has even made it to the half way point of the first round. He has serious power in his punches, proven by six (T)KO wins, but is also skilled in submissions, finishing the other five fights in that manner. Carwin was originally scheduled to take on Lesnar for the belt back in November before the champ's illness, so he hopes to secure this win for a shot at the real gold.Main Event- Georges St. Pierre
vs. Dan Hardy
To say St. Pierre is on top of his game would be like saying fire is hot. He's currently riding a six-fight winning streak and has completely dismantled everyone in his path lately. His most recent victory was five round beating of Thiago Alves
at the historic UFC 100
in a fight that saw the welterweight champ barely get tagged. He seems to be without weakness right now but his strongest technique is his ability to take people down at will and feed them a steady diet of vicious elbows. Look for more of this against Hardy, who's strength is mainly in his striking.
The last time St. Pierre tasted defeat was due to a big right hand delivered my Matt Serra
almost three years ago. Dan Hardy
punches harder than Matt Serra
. Landing a huge power punch is not only his best chance at winning this fight but most people agree that it's his only chance. Don't tell that to "The Outlaw" though. He's as confident as any fighter in the business and has the momentum of a seven-fight winning streak on his side. The 27-year-old Team Rough House fighter is the first English fighter to get a title shot in the UFC, and he's not going to concede anything to anybody with an entire country supporting him.
