I agree. In some ways this is a great match-up for Hardy and in others its a horrible one.
On the plus side, he's almost guaranteed to have a huge cardio advantage in this fight, and so if he can wear Johnson down in the first round I can see him out-striking him in the second for the TKO.
On the other hand, I agree he will be gun shy, especially with a known striker with KO power, and he wont want to open up in a big slugfest.
I see Hardy taking this by 2nd (t)ko.
