I get it man I watched the fights with some friends tonight who are very knowledgeable. We train together and talk mma a lot none use forums and only had bad things to say about them. I was thinking you guys must just be on the UG or sherdog but I come on here and it's a lot of the same after fights everyone bitching and tearing about elite fighters no matter the outcome.

I guess I just don't understand how some fans can't be pleased after a fight like that. I'd envisioned this fight for years, and it surpassed my expectations, which were high to begin with. There's just no pleasing some people. Yes it was a five round decision. But it was five rounds of heart-stopping action. There's really no reason to complain. If you can't appreciate a fight like that, then there's no impressing you.

Fightmetric is saying Condit outlanded St. Pierre by 20 strikes but that St. Pierre landed more than twice the number of significant strikes that Condit did. Interesting.

I really enjoyed this fight. St. Pierre looked really good coming off of a layoff and a career threatening injury. Condit was also very, very game even thought he was on his back most of the night. I jumped out of my seat when he knocked GSP down with that headkick in the third but was equally impressed with St. Pierre's ability to recover from it and take back control of the fight. As always, I loved watching St. Pierre grind from the guard. His ground and pound is wonderful to watch.

Still, watching this fight made me think even more that Anderson wouldn't have that much of a problem with St. Pierre. The size difference and the striking advantage are noticable.

His legs are getting huge too, definitely came in with a thick frame for this fight. I know he sounds very hesitant about taking a fight with Silva, but didn't he say a long time ago that if he was he wanted to get bigger? He definitely has to me. This is the most likely I feel the fight has ever been to happening. It may not be GSP's next fight though, he may have to beat Hendricks first. Anderson I think will sit back and wait to see what happens with Weidman/GSP and if GSP beats Hendricks,then we get our superfight. If Hendricks KO's GSP (only way I see him winning), we get Silva/Weidman.

People are hating on this fight? Seriously? That was the best GSP performance for a long time, and a superb fight. It wasn't 5 rounds of GSP laying on someone, or him jabbing them to death, this was a back and forth war. Georges looked superb, he made Condit, who's one of those guys who never normally makes a backwards step look tentative. Condit had opportunities to throw, but didn't. He threw 1 decent leg kick the whole fight, and immediately got taken down, that's how good GSP is. Superb fight, delighted to see Georges get the win, and can't wait for the super fight!

I did, I said he only threw one decent LEG kick, which is true. Condit rocked GSP hard, but that was pretty much the only decent combo he did land, other than that, Georges made him look tentative.

How the F*ck could 2 judges score 50-45, with Condit so close to finishing the fight and inflicting the most damage there than either fighter did at any point in the fight.

When is MMA judging gonna get its shit together.. Am i the only one that thinks Lombard got robbed?
