Two featured articles today in Norways biggest paper about this fight. Never seen anything like it. It's normally just a footnote in the sports section when a norwegian has been fighting, and sometimes not even then. These are proper articles aswell, not just copy/paste.

GSP is a big deal, there's a reason he's the top draw in MMA.

Carlos IS his most dangerous fight though, he has the striking that guys like Koscheck, Fitch, Shields didn't have and he's got the ability to get up from the takedown that Hardy and Alves didn't have. I hope it's enough to dethrone Georges.

I like both guys. I have no problem at all with how Condit fought against Diaz, if you can 'game plan' an opponents weakness and get a win, well, that's the whole damn point of martial arts.

That said, unless GSP's knee becomes an issue, Condit is not going to 'game plan' GSP ... not going to happen. Matter of fact Condit may be beaten already due to not having a game plan for GSP he can have any confidence in.

As for GSP's 'questionable chin', a lot of good fighters have found themselves unable to 'ask' that question once they got in the ring with GSP ... but, that's Condit's only chance really, so if he has any plan at all it is probably to go for broke every time the fight is taken to its feet, and being prepared to spend a lot of time on his back

GSP is very motivated, he really is embracing the moment and the excitement, he is hungry in a way that we have not seen for a long time.. i think we will see a different GSP in the ring tomorrow..

thus condit takes it...

Carlos doesn't have a chance in all hell people. Guys go away for a while and everyone comes up with ways he can be beat and forget how good they are. It's going to take a single round and then everyone is going to go oh yeah why did I ever think this would be close.

GSP looks extremely excited for this fight. The smile on his face and his mannerisms are clear as day. He's loving being back. I honestly think Condit is in for a very rough and short night.

So many folk buying into this "new GSP" hype it's crazy. As I said in an earlier post, I'll eat my undies if GSP finishes Carlos Condit.

Eric Cartman style.

IDK what to expect. I don't like big fights like this after a long layoff; it's not a factor to be ignored.

I love both fighters though, and I hope it's a close yet decisive bout.

I've got a pair you can wash them down with if it happens.

Finally someone with some common sense

The other thing that gets me is all this talk of "ring rust". At what point does ring rust set in exactly? Condit has waited 9 months instead of defending the interim belt. That shows a little lack of confidence to me.

I'm not sure there is much of a difference between not fighting in 9 months, or 19. It's not as if GSP had amnesia and forgot what to do in the cage. He's been training for this fight for months (just like any other fight), and wouldn't be fighting if his knee wasn't 100%.
