Yeah, I like Condit, but my opinion is that while Kampmann lost his fight, Condit was beaten.

Kampamm can look at his fight and brush off the loss as getting careless for a second and getting hit by a clean shot, a bit more concentration and the rematch could come out entirely different ... Condit on the other hand has to look at his fight and ask, what the hell could I have done to win that fight beyond just getting lucky? And he would be hard pressed to come up with any easy or credible answer.

Condit's real challange will be to not let this fight break his will and make him question his career in the MW division.

I was impressed by GSP's performance. I thought it was a very good fight and GSP came to fight. This was what you should come to expect when arguably the two best in the division square off. GSP didn't get the finish but I don't feel you can say anything bad about that because he did some serious damage to Condit but Condit stayed in there and kept fighting. GSP also showed great heart as he was in big trouble in the third and took many good strikes throughout. Overall I think this was a great performance by St Pierre.

I don't think it would be wise for GSP to fight Silva judging by this fight. GSP though fighting tough used his wrestling to over power Condit when things got a little tricky in the stand up. If GSP gets in the cage with Silva and can't take him down at will which I think will be the case I don't think he'll be able to stand up with Silva. I think if GSP fights Silva it could end up being a very devastating defeat for St Pierre.

You can't tell yourself "he was just lucky for 5 rounds."

Probably makes a lot pf opponents question whether they belong in the UFC WW division.
Not a fan of GSP style at all, but you depicted the ultimate truth here.

It's a shame for who like great exchanges, but ppl have to live with that. Saw the same frustration on the face of great strikers facing Jiu Jitsu for their first time. Adapt or get frustrated. Don't like BJJ? Train it hard. Don't like Wrestling? Do the same. That's the way to have the chance of implementing your preferred style finish. It's that or keep complaining world is unfair to you.

Incredible performance by GSP. Make no mistake, Condit is an incredible fighter, however once again, just not on GSP's level.

Regardless, Condit has made a huge fan out of me. I will watch any fight of his and support him.

how will he have trouble taking anderson down? if GSP truly is one of the elite wrestlers in MMA he should have no problem taking anderson down, especially since anderson doesnt depend on his strength a really good wrestler can take anyone down, look at Kos vs rumble...thats an even bigger size difference, if GSP loses its simply because hes no that good and needs to work on his wrestling. Plus i believe GSP is stronger than anderson

anyway....just watched the fight, pretty awesome! condit fought his heart out, he didnt give up and he was the ONLY fighter to not give up mentally against GSP...gotta respect that! too bad he spent to much time trying to fight off his back instead of trying to get up

Haters are going to hate. Every single time. They were looking for some straws to pull from this great fight and all they got is the UD. Some try CC did more damage but they themselves know they are being very partial but they can't resist it.

As it is, this was a great fight. GSP is also coming off of a long lay off, due to an injury. People tend to forget that in their hatred for him.

I don't hate him, nothing personal, but for me he needs to finish fights. He couldn't even knock down Condit in all 5 rounds, were Condit shocked all with his nearly finish to the champ.

Anyway, congrats to GSP, and hard luck to Condit.

Your entire post was pure garbage after an insanely amazing fight between two amazing fighters, you don't deserve to watch guys like GSP and Condit fight.
A sick guy, who can't stand others opinion!

If you didn't like what I said? Leave it, go forward read the next post in line, don't waste your time. The only guys who read garbage are the garbage themselves!!

What I talked about is facts. Tell me when was his last fight that he finished an opponent? Why take it hard to accept such a quote? This is FACT, its numbers not just lame speech such as what you're trying to enforce here!!

GSP is one of the greatest? Okay, but we need to see finishes not just fights that end by POINTS! We need to see what Martial Arts its about. The game is moving to like BOXING, or even today's world soccer. All about strategy and scoring points. I love the kill of the fighter not just lay and punch. Yes he did damage to Condit, but did you truly in all your heart saw the damage Condit did to GSP, and from where? From his BACK!!!

Grow up, and don't be so childish, if you hate a person's post, you don't have to form all that garbage act of yours against him. Just IGNORE THE POST.


Again, congrats to GSP and his fans, and hard luck for Condit and his fans too.

i like this new Georges, he really was trying to finish out there. loading up on punches and dropping some huge elbows and bombs from the top.. however condit is almost impossible to finish so you cant hold anything against GSP for not finishing this one.. its good to see him win a real fight though rather than the snoozefest of sweet man loving that he gives to most of his opponents...

condit surprised me though it seems at times he was content to just lay on his back and pepper georges punches and elbows hoping for a submission opportunity.. it seemed like when he really wanted to get up, he was actually able to. so im curious as to why he didn't force it more. also after the fight he said he was surprised at how good GSPs top control was.. dude its GSP! duh his ******* top control is good thats what he does!
