I expect GSP to comeback with a great performance. I truly think St Pierre is one of the few great fighters in the UFC and I believe the injury and time off will make him even more motivated which will be shown by his performance. I'm expecting GSP to do damage to Condit with both strikes and ground and pound. I think its possible for GSP to stop Condit if he does it will likely be in the later rounds, If he doesn't finish Condit I do expect him to at least bust Condit up. I've been saying for a while GSP is due to devastate one of his opponents, I know he is capable, and I have a feeling this fight is the one a lot of fans have been waiting for.

GSP via decision if he has his explosiveness after this injury and Condit by knockout if he doesn't.

Very skeptical about GSP coming off this particular injury... But looking at the fight on paper, GSP via (T)KO round 2. Against the grain I know.

He really has taken the time to try and come back right, and I think he really wants to stop Condit who is UNDOUBTEDLY a lesser fighter. Condit loses the mental game and get's overwhelmed by a GSP with serious fire under his ass.

Stop being butthurt over Condit/Diaz. Watch Condit's fight with Rory if you think he will "mentally break".

That being said, I think St. Pierre takes a 5 round decision. This is a very bad matchup for Condit, who was taken down and controlled by a leg bbq'd Diaz. St. Pierre also won't get swept like Kim either. His top control will be too strong.

Condit is a fighter i always feel has a shot as long as he is in there, not the kind to break at all. It was his will to win that led to him abandoning his normal aggressive style to outpoint Diaz.

If Condit was clearly losing fighting like that you can bet on him coming out aggressive against Diaz, but what was working was working and he had no reason to switch it up.

Stoked for this one, first time going into a fight that I'm actively pulling for Georges since the Trigg fight.

I hope it goes 5 rounds and Condit gets what's coming to him. Imagine how much more exciting this would be if it was GSP/Diaz...

Why would he cry tears of shame?

Because a bunch of butthurt Diaz fans didn't like his technical approach?

Like how this thread is using the picture i used for my sig like a year ago. So excited for this fight. Love both fighters and where I think GSP is better on paper he leaves fighters alive for too long. He does not finish fights when he should and as has already been said on this thread Condit always looks for the win as long as he is still alive. He is always dangerous and I think if GSP doesnt finish it he will give condit too many chances to win. That and I think that Condit has everything needed to beat GSP. Can no wait to see how this plays out. If it will be a fight people will love rewatching for a long time or all the foolish people saying it was boring even though they it was a smart gameplan. it has the opportunity for both I'm afraid.

The whole reason Condit fought Diaz the way he did was because he was broken mentally long before the fight started.

He knew in his heart of hearts, or someone he trusts convinced him, that he would need to employ a drastically different and frankly underwhelming strategy to CONTROVERSIALLY WIN ON POINTS for that fight. It was a terrible fight and complete waste of Nick Diaz' time. Condit cannot afford to do that again and when he tries to turn it up on GSP he will be outclassed, just like he was every time he decided not to turn and run when Nick Diaz attacked him.

GSP vs Diaz is the real skill FIGHT in this division right now.

That knee is going to get wrecked Georgey boy. Hopefully after this fight he retires for good.

Condit wins via being the better fighter. He's proven himself against a plethora of solid grapplers in the UFC. Kim, Ellenberger and Rory Mac. His height and reach advantage is going to give him a good advantage on the feet, I expect plenty of his signature kicks to the knee, like he did to perfection in the Dan Hardy fight and several hooks to the body when GSP comes lunging in with his jab which leaves his body wide open for a counter. On the ground I expect Condit to actively look for sweeps, subs and elbows to the head, giving George all kinds of problems.

Then hopefully we get a Diaz/Condit rematch and see the fight that we fans deserved from the first one. Two starving Hyenas thrown into a sack.
