GSP's next opponent better come to fight as well. Compare this fight to the Alves one. It's like Thiago didn't even try and GSP had 100% control of the fight where's Condit was game for the full 25 minutes.

When you're ready to actually make a case for Condit, come try sometime, don't waste time with ad hominem bs. What grade are you in?

Was a great showing from GSP after such a long layoff and against a tough opponent. That being said, he did seem to be missing a couple things we're used to seeing from him. First was his cardio. While going 5 rounds at that pase would kill most people, this was the first fight I've ever seen GSP look even slightly winded. Second was his standup. What made him so dangerous on his feet was his ability to stay out of range, explode in, strike and get back out before getting tagged. There wasn't really any of that this time. Even his takedowns seem more due to his immaculate timing. There were none of those steamroller doubleleg. Hoping it was ringrust, but we'll see.

GSP vs. Hendricks will see Hendricks spending alot of time on his back, very similar to GSP/Koshchek 1. No excitement there.

GSP/Silva has potential. GSP is absolutely for sure going to keep that fight on the ground. No way he's dumb enough to bang with him. He also doesn't have Sonnens tendancy to stick his head in triangles at every opportunity. That being said, those long limbs make Silva damn dangerous off his back. Just don't think it will be the one sided murder some people think.

Bummed out Condit didn't win as he's one of my favorites. GSP was taking him down too easily. The blueprint (if there is one) to beating GSP seems to be someone who has good striking and TDD. Once Condit didn't finish the TKO, I knew he was doomed because GSP went for only TD's after that and rightfully so. To beat GSP, it has to be a clean KO.

Same, I am bummed as I seriously thought Condit was going to win, and not only win, but finish as I knew a decision would never go his way.

I really thought Condit's ground game off his back would be enough to neutralize most of GSP's offense, but clearly I was wrong. GSP was able to keep up his attack and Condit couldn't really get anything solid.

I thought Condit had GSP after the headkick, but all the credit in the world to GSP for coming back, and as one article said 'He even appeared angry for the first time ever in the cage'.

As a side note, and hopefully not taken as bitterness as it isn't, but why couldn't GSP finish Condit. There were several times where I saw chances that he could have gone for, but everytime he rode it to safety again. Other than that head kick GSP was never in any real danger, so why not take the risk knowing he could regain control should it not work?

Awesome fight. Condit brought it and didn't stop until the end.

This is very true, but generally even great TDD isn't enough. BJ Penn has great TDD but it didn't do him any good. The problem is that GSP's TD timing is so good. He always hits the TD when the other guy commits to a strike. Very hard to stop a TD off guard like that, especially against someone with GSP's TD skill

It's because GSP just doesn't have great power. He is very technically sound, well rounded, and accurate. However, he lacks good submissions or delivering really big shots. I also think he doesn't go for big shots because he doesn't want to get caught while doing so. But there's a reason he hasn't finished anyone in 4.5 years (not counting a doctor stoppage in between rounds against Penn).

(again, not taking anything away from him either, I think he's #2 P4P)
