Well, that went about as expected.
Georges St-Pierre fulfilled the prognostications of nearly every MMA pundit around the globe. For five rounds, St-Pierre had his way with Dan Hardy, finishing takedowns and passing guard at will. Hardy claimed he wasn't worried about being taken down, and that showed in the fight. St-Pierre didn't allow Hardy much time to land the knockout punch needed to take the fight.
Hardy was game, though. St-Pierre had Hardy in deep trouble twice in the fight. In the first round, St. Pierre locked on a deep armbar. Hardy grimaced in pain as he escaped out from underneath the champ. Throughout the fight, St-Pierre worked for a kimura, and finally clamped one on in round four. Hardy showed some intense mental fortitude while St-Pierre twisted his arm around Hardy's back.
