“UFC Primetime” to feature Georges St. Pierre and Dan Hardy on Spike TV

New York, NY, January 18, 2010 – In anticipation of their world welterweight title clash at UFC 111: ST-PIERRE vs. HARDY, UFC champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Dan Hardy will be featured on UFC Primetime®, a weekly, three part series premiering Wednesday, March 10 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on Spike TV.

UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives of perhaps the world’s best pound for pound fighter, St-Pierre, and Hardy, the man looking to unseat him at the top of the welterweight ladder. As the two prepare for their meeting in late March, Spike TV will present three special weekly installments that will take viewers across the pond to Nottingham, England as Hardy trains with the rest of his Rough House team, and back to North America to Montreal to see how St-Pierre, one of the most beloved athletes in Canada, is preparing for his title defense. UFC Primetime delivers an extraordinary amount of access to two of mixed martial arts’ best, as they head into what could be the signature fight of 2010 at UFC 111.

Christopher Martello of Spike TV serves as executive in charge of production of UFC Primetime.

UFC 111 will air live on Pay-Per-View Saturday, March 27 from the Prudential Center, in Newark, NJ at 10:00 PM ET/ 7:00 PM PT.

    Dan Hardy has pretty good standup and is powerful enough to stop most people from getting him to the ground.
    That being said, GSP is so much better at takedowns than Hardy is at defending them that there is almost no way this fight doesn’t end up on the ground early on.
    Hardy’s best shot at winning this fight is to nail GSP with a big shot and swarm him like Serra did. But I don’t see that happening. GSP out wrestled Kos, out struck Alves, and out worked Fitch.

    Unless Hardy get’s that lucky shot in, I don’t see any way for him to win this.

  • Ok I agreed with you until you said he out struck Alves. He did nothing of the sort, he faked strikes and took him down. He did drop him once but that was way late in the fight and it wasnt recurring . The good thing for GSP is that he is taking Dan Hardy alot more serious than any of us are. He should be able to hold him down and bore me for another 25 minutes. That being said at this level of the game there are no such things as lucky shots and if Dan Hardy can counter GSP’s strikes and not buy any of his take down faints we just might get the next biggest upset in UFC history, both involving GSP. Go ahead and start thumbs downing me.

    I’ve been Underwhelmed in recent GSP Fights with his ability to put em Away! Yeah he Controls them for 5 Rounds but they should be Over + Done in 2!! This will be a damn Good Fight!! GSP in 3!!

    GSP… it’s a done deal.

    and the reason gsp fights the way he fights is to prolong his career and avoid any major damage to his body… i’m sure he can put away challengers more quickly but he plays the game the way he wants to…i’m actually not a big fan of his but i know he is one of the best to ever do it and there is a reason why he is consistantly the best at what he does.

    I personally don’t think he deserves the title shot but I understand the UFC’s preference for new matchups over the old rematches. Gsp should stomp dude out in 3
