As a former Condit fan, it's a bummer, but the Diaz fight will follow him around for the rest of his career.

And in 5 years, after he has failed to beat GSP, lost a couple more fights, got cut, and retired, it will be what he is remembered for.

Especially if they rematch and Diaz beats him.

There's nothing 'wrong' with it. But it won't make you a popular fighter. And once you guys realize this isn't really a sport, it's entertainment, you'll understand.

If it was a sport, Chael Sonnen wouldn't be fighting Jones for the LHW title.

Imagine if last year David Stern announced that Kobe and the Lakers would be getting to play Lebron and the Heat for the championship because he said so and it was the match up the fans really wanted.

May I ask what you're basing that on?

Has he taken a big shot since? No.

Therefore his chin is still questionable.

I wouldn't say that's enough to make his chin questionable. I would say about 95% of the division would have been put down if hit with the same shots.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

GSP is training like an animal. Loving the primetime shows! In the battle of the guest coaches GSP's got it won. Danaher is an incredible BJJ coach, and it was awesome to see the guys from Tiger helping GSP out. I went over to Thailand in the summer, and did 3 weeks at Tiger, and actually had a few sessions with Master Yod. Didn't see Lam while I was there, but Master Yod helped out in a few of the beginner classes. Pretty insane to see the difference between GSP hitting the pads, and Lam hitting the pads. Lam has some insane power!

I cannot wait for this fight. Condit is an incredible fighter, and has been training like a beast too, but I just think GSP's too skilled, and will be so ready for this fight. It'll probably go to a decision, but I'd love to see some old school 'Rush' from GSP. Condit's incredibly durable though, so it wouldn't surprise me if GSP takes a fairly comfortable UD. War GSP!

Whats the general consensus on where GSP is gonna want to take this fight? Strike with Condit or take him down?

this pretty much sums it up. If GSP is 100% Condit is going to have a long night. Unless GSP also re-discovered his killer instinct, in which case it will be a short night. If he didn't regain his explosiveness, he's pretty much toast. That is what sets him above everyone else. He loses that there's a few WW that will flatten him

Chael Sonnen is a point fighter.

GSP's also regarded as a point fighter and he's the biggest draw in MMA now that Brock has left us.

Basically, you CAN be a point fighter if you have charisma, which both guys do. Chael Sonnen has the largest arms and the most charm and GSP has riddum. Kinda like Floyd Mayweather who is the King of PPV, it's all about charisma.

I agree with this.

But as a whole, it will always be more popular to not be a point fighter. Those are 2 extreme examples.

Chael has the biggest mouth in the history of MMA. Of course he will have big exposure even if he sucked ass.

GSP is the face of Canada. A country that loves and embraces MMA. Other than Rory he is basically their only star. GSP will always do huge numbers because of that. He has the backing of a whole country.

Those are extreme examples. You CAN create a huge draw out of it. But you have to be in certain situations. Not every guy can talk like Chael nor wants to. Not every guy can rep a country like GSP does in MMA. Even if Brock was a wrestler who didn't finish. Just wrestled. He would still of been a HUGE draw because he was a famous pro wrestler. His physique. Not everyone in MMA can be a former WWE star and one of the biggest guys out there. Again it would have been a extreme situation. But Lesnar was a HW and finished fights...or got finished...haha
