Hardy caught a lot of flak from folks on here when he spent all offseason last year bulking up to ~300 lbs.
Then he has his best year as a pro. fug some finesse moves, just outmuscle the man in front of you Kraken!
I don't think people were afraid of him adding a few pounds of muscle. They didn't want that muscle to come at the detriment of his speed. It did seem to work out nicely though.
