I don't know if it will be that bad, but it's certainly true that there is no reason to think GSP won't take Condit down. Condit has more ability to get up and threaten from his back than Hardy did. Of course, it won't be enough, GSP has the best top control in MMA, if he wants to keep Condit down, he probably will.
I'm also getting pretty weary of hearing GSP say that 'my toughest opponent' line EVERY
time he fights. You want to respect your opponent, ok, I get it, but seriously, every time? Enough with that already.
