Even past Condit, GSP still would have a lot to deal with at 170. The winner of Kampmann-Hendricks can't be ignored. There's still Nick Diaz out there..

Wouldn't it make more sense for Rory to move up? He has a much bigger frame.

I actually do think it would play a part, ACL injuries destroy the careers of many and I'm not sure if enough people are catuious about it. Very few can come back from it like Adrian Peterson is doing but then again, look at what they've done to Shogun, completely ruined him.

An instant rematch? Instant rematches should only be used in instances of a Draw or a terrible judges decision that management and fans all didn't see the same way.

If a guy goes out there and finishes a guy, there is no sense to an instant rematch. Whether kicked in the leg or not. Pat Barry stopped fights due to leg kicks. Could the guy say he sprained his knee in practice and it was weak? GSP said he is 100% and is stepping in there as such. He didn't hurry anything. If Condit goes out there, leg kicks him....hurts it, then KO's him. That is what he is supposed to do. That is his job. Why would GSP get a rematch if he stepped in there at the almost 4 to 1 favorite and Condit hurt him and finished him? Do we wait 10 more months to let GSP heel to see if his knee would hold up again? Does Condit sit on the sidelines parading his stupid fake belt around or would he get the real one? Or is there an injury belt too?

In the end it won't matter. GSP wins and it isn't even close. GSP's knee is 100%. He wouuldn't fight if it wasn't. I don't see how a legkick GSP injury makes anyone think he would deserve a do-over. Condit throws leg kicks. You are telling him if he wins that way that it wasn't actually legit enough.

I think if Condit wins, no matter how the fight goes, people are inevitably going to blame it on GSP's long lay-off.

If GSP loses, no matter what the reason, the UFC WILL give him a rematch no matter what. They can't let their highest-drawing champion lose his title and not get a chance to win it back.

I would be seriously annoyed if people used the excuse of ringrust/injury for GSP's loss. He's been inactive for nearly a year and has taken an extended period of time to heal 100% and then has had a full training camp to train for Condit, someone he has extensive information on.

I hate immediate rematches in any occasion outside of incidental injuries like fight-ending nutshots, eyepokes, cuts, or any other random incident (like James Irvin and Bobby Southworth falling out of the cage resulting in Irvin popping his knee out.)
