CC is the ONLY person who didnt break against the onslaught, didnt mentally give up. Appreciate CC for that. The ONLY guy who actually fought against GSP as if he is fighting anyone else. Everyone who fought against GSP was already defeated even before the fight started but CC was an exception. Not finishing CC didnt surprise me. I doubt anyone would, unless they can get a flash KO.
I completely agree and I wasn't knocking GSP for not finishing Carlos, I was just pointing out that he didn't actually come close to ever finishing the fight (whilst Carlos did). That doesn't mean I don't think GSP was trying to go for the finish, he absolutely was, and I commend him for that. Carlos Condit is just very active and dangerous from his back and incredibly hard to put away.
The posts on here claiming that GSP did more damage to Carlos in the fight though are simply false.
