I thought he lost the fight, but even so, grinding out a split decision over a 3rd rate fighter, and getting knocked on your ass repeatedly, and taken down repeatedly, doing it, well, all I can say is now I know how much better the WW div is than the WEC now. Condit was the freakin champ at WEC, now he's 1-1, could've easily been 0-2, and his win is a nail biter over a nobody. That doesn't suggest great things in his future to me. He has some serious holes in his game, and if last night is any indication, he gets crushed by any top ten WW.
I know he will never see the belt. He would still give a lot of guys problems though. Hughes, KoS, Swick would all be entertaining. Not so sure he would win any of them but still lol.
