But I don't see how any could argue that rounds 1-3 (beginning up till the head kick) were different from rounds 4 and 5.
But again this wasn't Dan Hardy, it was Condit and Condit was nasty from the ground, not only from the strikes but also from the threat of sweeps and subs.
Honestly, I'm really interested in hearing who people think would have finished Condit in that situation because I can't think of anyone.
