Schooling Nick? I don't remember that, regardless that decision was not without controversy.
If GSP starts feeling uncomfortable standing he'll just take Condit down and grind him to a finish or decision.
Condit was able to Caleb Starns his way to the win against Daiz in part because of poor judging but also because Nick doesn't have the best mma wrestling in the UFC to fall back on. GSP is the gold standard for mma wrestling.
Condit has slightly better stand up however some of his tools are going to to be left in his tool belt.
You can't just leg kick GSP haphazardly. GSP wont ignore them, he'll check them to stop them from scoring and he'll take you down if you get repetitive, Condit definitely wants to stay away from the ground game.
Condit cannot win this fight by trying to out point GSP from bottom, that would be a atrocious gameplan of fail.
Odds are GSP by decision IMO and I can't see him gassing either, to me that's just wishful thinking by Condit fans.
In my eyes Condit needs to stop GSP anyway he can. He better sub, cut, TKO/KO him and the sooner the better b/c GSP should take over in the championship rounds. I just don't see Condit having the skill to make GSP fight Condit's fight.
Condit fans better pray for a goat vagina.
