Dan Hardy said GSP chose "to stick with the safe option to keep his belt":
"Obviously GSP won, you look at the scorecard and he was dominant in his victory. But I didn't feel like I was beaten up in any way, I wasn't injured, I wasn't hurt. He took the win from me but he didn't take the fight from me.
"I wasn't beaten mentally or physically. I don't know, it must be frustrating for the fans and it's frustrating for me because I know that GSP has the kind of potential to make more of a fight out of it. But he's very good at wrestling and he chooses to stick with the safe option to keep his belt. I mean you can't hold it against him. It's not what I would do in his situation but I'm not in his situation right now, so I can't really make those calls."
