Watch Georges St-Pierre vs. Dan Hardy full fight video to commemorate the 10th anniversary of “GSP” successfully defending his welterweight title for the fourth time at UFC 111 on March 27, 2020, in Newark, N.J.
St-Pierre was in the midst of a dominant run at the top of the 170-pound division when he met Hardy, a British star who went 4-0 in the UFC to earn his title shot. While “The Outlaw” was given the proverbial puncher’s chance, he found himself on the receiving end of a vintage St-Pierre performance. Hardy claimed a moral victory by gutting out a couple of scary submission attempts, but inevitably it was St-Pierre who added to his growing legacy.
The loss sent Hardy into a slump, though he bounced back with consecutive wins over Amir Sadollah and Duane Ludwig before putting his career on indefinite hold in 2012. Meanwhile, St-Pierre went on to successfully defend the welterweight championship five more times before taking his own break from the sport in 2013.
