Only blind favoritism could allow somebody to think Diaz beat Condit, Diaz is Leonard Garcia with a black belt and better boxing and a love of that style cannot allow somebody to score a fight for him. Condit didn't really give GSP alot of trouble one head kick was the only time he was even remotely in control. What does the fact Condit can land one big shot have to due when arguing Diaz can land his 50 some body shots?One Diaz body shot is not gonna crumple GSP that is the difference. I think the fact you went back 7 years against a guy who should have been fighting at FW just furthers my point.
I would bet you that not only does GSP win but that he does so far easier than the Condit fight.
It won't be an easier fight than condit, condit didn't win the fight with diaz also since what did he land? 0 significant strikes. Nothing rocked diaz or even came close to finishing him at all, but diaz landed the harder face and body shots and was the only one to come close to finishing the fight by TAKING CONDIT DOWN and having a little time with condits back. Sherk is in no way a fw I don't know where you get that from he has only lost to champions of the lw and ww divisions. I'll let the fight with gsp and nick speak for itself.
