The fact that many people have commented on how he fought more recklessly than usual shows that GSP fought more with heart than mind. He wanted to finish. He wanted to bring it to Carlos. And he did.
There was not one round where GSP just cruised along in top control. But you go ahead and think that. I'm no longer interested in trying to convince people otherwise.
I'm not knocking GSP here, I know he came to fight and he did. I'm just saying that I think Carlos did more damage from the bottom than GSP did from the top and the reason GSP won was because of his top control. I even counted strikes on the ground in the later rounds and every round I come up with numbers that favor Condit. Even in this system right now I think you have to give 3 and 4 to Condit.
I know I've got my own set of rules in my head that few people will agree with and I can see you're probably exhausted from convincing other people in this thread so I guess we'll just leave it at that.
Moving on to less frustrating things...
Was that a fight or what?
