Condit's never ran from anyone. He fought damn smart and awesome in the Diaz fight. And came out to kill GSP but was beaten by a better fighter.

I'm impartial to Condit, but always enjoy his fights. I'll never understand the stick he got for the Diaz fight. He made Diaz look stupid (just understood why he gets hate now...)

Hendricks all day long. He'll be too much for Condit's recent fighting style change

I completely disagree with both statements. Condit has been in reverse for 2 fights now.

How was he in reverse against GSP? Actually justify your claim.

Condit worked more from bottom than anyone who has faced St. Pierre thus far, and he came within inches of removing GSP's head from his body, after which he stormed in for a potential finish. You're reaching for the stars if you believe Condit ran from GSP.

How can you go forward from your back? Carlos has fought like a little bitch the last 2 fights compared to the killer he was before that. Call it "smart" if you want but throwing kicks and hoping to counter everytime while refusing to come forward and engage is not what he was doing for years. It's not what got him his fans it's not what got him his nickname. Just like GSP hasn't fought the same post-Serra. Both fighters are fighting scared to lose. I can't stand either fighter at the moment.

LOL, if you believe 'going backwards' and fighting from one's back are the same, then your perception of MMA is seriously flawed.

I'm just saying it's hard to go in reverse from your back. Being active from your back is the same as countering really. You aren't the aggressor you are reacting to the other guy pushing the pace.

How can you go in reverse from your back? There's a big difference between reversing and having a solid game off your back. He had to have had GSP worried in their fight.

GSP is always worried, that's why he doesn't take any risk.
