If Rumble defeats Hardy...

Anthony Johnson is predicting he's going to KO Dan Hardy at UFC Fight Night on March 26. You can see that here:

Anyway, if Rumble is successful in knocking off Hardy, who here believes Hardy will be cut?

The Brit will have lost three straight if he drops the fight to Johnson, as he's coming off the KO loss to Condit and the decision to GSP. Would that be enough for Dana to send Hardy packing?

i cant see them cutting Hardy strictly due to how marketable he is and he is one of the few brits that the americans seem to like. He would be given another chance most likely. Three straight losses but one was to GSP, so they prob don't look at it that bad and with Condit, i think it was more him underestimating and simply being caught. They like Hardy because he goes into fight regardless.

I dont believe so. I think Dana and Joe Silva have known about a year now that Hardy is not truly "World Class" as they say... Hes a tough Brit with a personality and image that all nations can embrace. If hes out cold come bell ring i feel we never see him in the top half of a UFC card again but not way Dana cuts him. He brings in alot of U.K. revenue and money is the last thing Dana wants Strikeforce licking their chops at. To me, UFC cuts mean no further money to be made or health risk. Hardy is neither...

Nope, he offers too much to UK. He'll get one more shot. 4 losses however... look out.

With that said, this is all assuming Rumble makes weight and beats Hardy, two things I'm not on board with happening especially given his insanely long lay off.

I don't see him getting cut.
