So imagine going back in time and something different happened: George St Pierre V's Dan Hardy UFC 111. At the time GSP was under gradually mounting pressure to finish fights starting to be labelled "boring" while sponsors started to fall a sleep. Hardy meanwhile considered by some the best striker in the welterweight division with his self described underrated 10th planet jits.
Initially St-Pierre dominated the fight with his wrestling. He caught Hardy in the first round with an armbar, but Hardy refused to tap and eventually fought out of the hold. In the fourth round St-Pierre caught Hardy in a kimura while in the reverse-mount position which again he successfully defended. GSP has safely dominating the first four rounds without really hurting Hardy.
Moments before the 5th round with Gregg Jackson in GSP's corner telling him: "stick to the game plan" a moment of red mist washes over the Canadian. As he walks to the centre of the octagon for the final round GSP goes toe-to-toe with Hardy and unloads a 5 punch combination. The crowd in New Jersey roar. Then GSP steps back trying a couple of rangey kicks before closing the distance and throwing a jab and a cross which Hardy narrowly misses. Rogan comments on GSP's increased training at the Wildcard gym under Freddie Roach.
Hardy takes a couple of steps back before GSP uses his speed to close the distance again throwing a bundled combination with one final wild overhand right haymaker which Hardy narrowly slips then quickly glimpses his chance and catches GSP with a wild left hook. GSP is clearly wobbled and finds himself back against the cage. Hardy smelling blood stuffs a feeble take down attempt snarls and unloads a barrage of power punches. The ref leaps in and pulls Hardy away for a TKO victory.
My question to you is what would have happened next?
