Top Control might be a little bit overrated BUT not in the Condit/GSP fight. From bottom you dont create nearly as much power as you do from the top. So sure Condit was active but GSP wasnt exactly stalling either. I thought GSP did more damage from the top then Condit did from the bottom. And that picture proves absolutely nothing because GSP got hit in the face standing up also. Just 1 punch to the nose could have created that whole bruise. And the rest does not even look that bad.

You know what i think is more overrated then top control??? Looking at a guys face post fight to indicate how much damage he took.
