Do you know how hard it was for GSP to keep Condit down? Any other WW grappler and Condit would have swept. Why do you think he was trying so hard to escape? Because being at the bottom is just NOT a great position to be at unless your bread and butter was Jitz. Those pity strikes from the bother did enough damage to bother the ground and pound but don't kid yourself, none of those strikes actually do "Real" dmg, just annoying pecking.

GSP cut Condit badly on the eye and busted his nose, I even think he had his other brow bleeding too. Condit didn't do all that much damage apart from a head kick and a few failed sub attempts. I'm guessing you're not a GSP fan lol

That would have been tasteless IMO, after GSP's long layoff and tough first fight back. It would have made him look like a bully as well. If he fights GSP, he better fight JBJ afterwards or I would lose respect for him. This is coming from a major AS nuthugger.

Lets not start hating GSP for his first fight in 19months, the fact is that 99% of the fighters would come in out of shape and probably lose this fight on such a long lay off. There are very few fighters who can take 19 months off, injury or not, and come back and look as impressive as GSP has. Just be happy GSP is back, regardless if you hate him or love him.

Kind of difficult to do so though. Whenever GSP wasn't throwing punches, Condit was throwing elbows.

What about GSP's face. His eyes are both swollen and he has marks all over his face, where did they all come from?

Yes, I'm not disputing that GSP fully deserved the win - he certainly did. I just don't want to see people claiming it was a thoroughly dominant performance and an "easy win", when really, it wasn't. It was a fairly competitive fight.

GSP also bruises easily if you haven't noticed. It doesn't take much to get his eyes swollen.

Where the hell did I say it was? I already acknowledged that GSP busted him wide open.
