I agree with the sentiment that Carlos marked up Georges more, and he landed the most significant strike of the night.

George couldn't do much from the top, but of course he deserves the decision based on what the rules are.

Great fight, but Georges still can't finish.

More and more I think Silva would tool him.

Until he gets his 1 in 10 right and goes nuts telling us "I told you so" and bragging how smart he was.

Because this was a big trolling move many fell for. Anderson never called GSP, UFC is pushing the fight, fans want to see the fight, but Anderson never been the "bully" LyotoLegion likes to describe. If he would climb to the stage, for sure everything would be in agreement. Those guys are not Tito or Forrest protocol breakers.

Anyway, this is GSP comeback night. Lets not spoil his moment.

I'm a GSP fan and Canadian, but I don't see how any one can put faith in GSP finishing a fight anymore.

People don't give GSP credit. His top game (ground) is on par with a an Anderson Silva striking game say in mid 2000s which is still pretty impressive. His technical prowess, maneuvering, slipping out of submissions constantly, control, pushing a frenetic pace, and GNP has to be commended. The ONLY thing he lacks is KO power. If he had the equivalent KO power of the LHW title holder in his respective division he would have finished 90% of his fights.

Also I realized that's why GSP is more proned to getting injured because his fights always go the distance as opposed to the other champions in other divisions who are able to finish quicker.

PS: Although exciting, as I said Condit is far too reckless with his striking even though the Brazillian kick and 3+4 lhk combo was pretty sweet. Anderson Silva would have done what he always does countering and it would be lights out.

PSS: I now believe GSP is being pressured into a fight he DOES NOT want against Anderson Silva. As much as the majority of us want to see it, it's really up to his camp. He said Condit was the biggest threat. Facing Anderson Silva will take that honour.

You really don`t get it huh?

I've been a Nick Diaz fan for the better part of a decade and I used to say the same thing. 'How the hell did Nick lose he was beating the hell out of that guy from his back...'

But it doesn't matter.

The judges have the collective IQ of one retarded 6 year old.

Duh guy on da top winz erry time yuh!

And until we get judges who understand the sport, it will never change.

And if it was anyone but Carlos on the end of this, I would be a little pissed off too.

But Carlos deserves it imo. Now he can see what it feels like when you train for months to fight a guy, and he shows up and just refuses to fight you. And wins.

But GR, let's not have a full meltdown tonight bro. It didn't go your way tonight, but you gotta reign it in a bit, man.

Hendricks KO'd Kampmann and GSP humped Carlos into the living death.

It happens.

In all fairness it seems Condit is hard to finish. No question in my mind that GSP somewhat became a bit more passive on the ground and on the feet after the head kick. But it's not like he just layed on Condit, or refused to engage him on the feet either, cause that would be an exaggeration. But I don't see how any could argue that rounds 1-3 (beginning up till the head kick) were different from rounds 4 and 5.

But again this wasn't Dan Hardy, it was Condit and Condit was nasty from the ground, not only from the strikes but also from the threat of sweeps and subs.
