In GSP's prefight interviews to the Condit fight, he claimed he saw Carlos as the champ, I agreed.
Hmm. While i would see Barao as the real champ after 1-2 defenses, there's no way i saw Condit as one. He didn't do anything with the belt. A real champ would've put it on the line, not wait for the actual champ to return.
