Condit 'guarantees to dominate' Hardy

Quote:
http://www.espn.co.uk/ufc/sport/story/48320.html

Carlos Condit has 'guaranteed to dominate' Dan Hardy at UFC 120, insisting he will make the Briton feel 'uncomfortable' on home turf.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN, Condit showed plenty of respect for Hardy, explaining that The Outlaw's ability was what initially attracted him to the fight. The American acknowledges that his opponent has 'good jiu-jitsu', but he expects to control the fight wherever it goes at London's O2 Arena.

Condit has won his last two fights, against Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald, and he is desperate to earn a crack at the UFC welterweight belt. Hardy is the next step on that path, and the former WEC welterweight champion is confident.

"I guarantee I'll dominate it," Condit told ESPN. "I'm definitely not saying he's not well-rounded; from what I've seen he's got pretty good jiu-jitsu.

"But I'm better on the ground, and we'll find out who's better on the feet. I try to inflict as much damage as possible, at all costs. My job is to make him feel uncomfortable, make him panic, no matter what. I'll be pressing him, whether I'm on my feet or whether he's on his back."

Condit is trained by Greg Jackson, the same coach that drew out the gameplan for Georges St-Pierre to stifle Hardy at UFC 111. Asked if he would follow the blueprint by taking Hardy to the mat at UFC 120, Condit would not rule out the possibility.

"I'm not going to give away too much of my gameplan but I definitely feel I have an advantage on the ground. That won't surprise anybody for me to say that. But we'll see where it goes."
Should be a good fight but i dont see Condit beating Hardy in London, i just think Hardy will have too much and if he rocks him early on then Hardy win will be the only outcome.

Hardy will simply be too fired up for Condit to handle him.

I predict a R1 TKO for Hardy. He's gunna be vicious!

Its gonna be a good fight, this.

I *want* Hardy to win, but who knows. Carlos is pretty shit hot also.

I will say this: using terms like "panic" when talking about Hardy? I dunno about that. If there's one thing we can attribute to Hardy, is that mentally hes pretty damn solid. I'm not sure that pressuring Dan will do Carlos any favours. Its all very well trying to get up from under GSP or Fitch, but the rest of the division have nowhere near the skills those two do.

Whatever. I love both these guys. I will be very surprised if this is anything other than full on pain.

I like Condit's style. He takes the fight to his opponent wherever it goes even if he's on his back. He's probably one of the most aggressive fighters in the UFC and his ground game is pretty slick.

I wasn't too impressed with Hardy's fights prior to his title shot and he got demolished by GSP. So this should give us a better gauge of where he's at in the WW division.

No doubt this will be a good fight though.

I'm not sure Condit should be talking about "dominating" anyone. I think he'll beat Hardy but he was damn close to losing to both Ellenberger and Macdonald so domination would surprise me.

I'm a huge Carlos Condit fan.. but the UFC is a bit different than WEC. Carlos doesn't carry the muscle mass nor the speed necessary to be successful in the upper echelons of WW in the UFC. He needs to drop to LW.

Condit is going to get knocked senseless by Dan F'n Hardy. I'm gonna hate it.. don't much like Hardy.... but this is a mis-match. On paper maybe it looks better... but this is not going to be competetive.

Exactly. What would you say happens if he gets tagged in the same manner by Hardy instead of the previous guys? Carlos has shown less than stellar strike avoidance skills, always willing ot mix it up and take a shot to deliver a shot. Well, this ain't Kansas anymore.. these guys are bigger and stronger than you Carlos and they have good technique. Keep leading with your chin and you're going to get KTFO.

And why do you figure that? Hardy has only put 1 of his opponents away since he joined the UFC. It seems everyone still believes the UFC hype that he has amazing striking along with 1 punch KO power.

Condit will get tagged early like he always does and then proceed to prison **** Hardy for the rest of the fight.

Yea, that particular statistic always got on my nerves. And I'm a Hardy fan. Dan does have good striking, and manages to pack a lot of power into short punches. Hence his ability to rock a dude from seemingly nothing. This is his strongest striking feature. However, you're right. He doesn't have a KO punch. Also, after rocking Swick, his instincts were severely lacking. This kind of surprised me as watching Dans fights in lesser organizations, he tended to jump on his opponent when he had him rocked. Against Swick he just stood there after rocking him badly. Not great, especially against a dude like Carlos.

I hope this fight can answer enough questions so I can be a fan of Hardy the fighter, to the level that I adore Hardy the man. The funny fecker.
