Exactly my point. And on the ground if he gives GSP the same problems we can see GSP having issues.

Maybe historically has more ways he has won, but coming up against GSP, he's going to be limited by GSP's abilities, namely his boxing, takedowns, and top control. I definitely don't count him out. Maybe Condit's record has been impressive, but he's never come against a wrestler or striker like GSP.
GSP is not the striker he used to be so that is a statement that no longer qualifies. As for being a better wrestler, that is true in the form of TD's and TDD, but on the ground I think Condit is better than GSP from both the bottom and top. If Condit manages to sweep GSP, something that can happen, GSP will really be like a fish out of water.

I doubt that fish out of water would describe it. Obviously GSP hasn't spent a lot of time on his back, but when he has, he has taken virtually no damage and gotten up almost immediately. On top of that, the few times he was on his back, it was high end guys on top of him, Kos, Fitch, Alves, and he got up easily.

Not saying he wants to be on his back, of course he doesn't, but he got up easily against those guys, no reason to think he wouldn't against Condit.

Because those guys were wrestlers, except for Alves who had no clue what to do because he was as surprised as anyone that he was on top. They wanted to control GSP, Condit will attack. GSP will try his normal sweeps or try to standup only to find Condit on his neck, or after an arm, or who knows what.
