*No Mercy* but its good to point out that Condit did get the TKO win against Rory.
Yah Condit is a sleeper. This guy was the WEC champ so he has credibility as shown in his recent fights.
Two points why Condit would make for an interesting challenge to the throne.
1.) He fights tenaciously with unpredictability. His striking is far better than Fitch or Koschek with the exception of Alves. The element of surprise can really disrupt GSP's systematic approach. Condit can brawl (Hardy fight), but he's fairly tactical.
2.) Heart. The fight against Rory Mcdonald showed that. He was getting dominated for two rounds and came back in the 3rd like nothing happened. This shows that Condit has the "killer instinct" and can finish at any given moment.
Can he do the job, unlikely, but it'll be very interesting.
Condit vs Fitch, Kos, BJ Penn, Alves or Anthony Johnson would be an interesting contender match up.
