Yes, a few probably could. Just because GSP doesn't have a granite chin doesn't mean it's questionable. It means he's not a human punching bag.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I think its funny how anyone questions GSPs chin just based off the Serra fight. Serra landed some hard ******* shots including a few to the back of GSPs head and he never actually went out. GSPs chin is just fine.

I don't doubt it but its not like he's ever really been hit otherwise.

No one would take a hard shot right behind the ear and be more or less unharmed.

You probably know that our inner ear is what allows us to maintain our balance, but I don't think you understand how delicate a structure it is, or just how profoundly we rely on it.

suffer even slight damage to your inner ear, and your brain starts getting conflicting information about which way is up, and which way your head is moving. It would become very hard just to stand still on focus your eyes, much less move around, and impossible to defend against a fighter trying to put you away.

After reading article after article about the super fight. GSP has an enormous weight over his shoulders. I don't know how one man does it the way Anderson does. Think about it for one minute. Imagine yourself in that spotlight. Could you handle it.

This fight has to happen and there's only one obstacle in the way this Saturday. Can GSP shake off the ring rust and come back from his injury to reclaim his throne.

I think we're going to see a vintage GSP controlling the top position all five rounds. Setting up what we've all been waiting for all these years.

As with this one...

I like Condit and I like GSP. I really would preffer this fight wouldn't be GSP coming back from some intense recovery.
I normally don't like GSP style, but if he can win even in a boring 5 rounds decision it's OK, because regardless of the result I wish he stays healthy and active for future challenges.

Condit well deserves this title shot. It should be a great fight.

May the best man win and GSP's knee remains intact no matter what.

Wonder if size difference will come into play.

Condit could tower a good 4-5[?] inches over GSP.

Condit is taller, but they have the same reach.
I suspect that the taller/more upright Carlos chooses to fight, the better it will work for GSP's shots/TD's.

I would be mightily surprised if GSP looked like the overall smaller fighter come fight night.
