Impressive? Very much so. Smart? I don't know about that. To me, it would be equivalent to Thiago Alves pulling a triangle off on BJ Penn.
Smart fighters are more likely to go on and have a long successful career, yet lack the excitement in a lot of their fights. Fighters like GSP come to mind here. On the flip side, you have the brave fighters who feel invincible, and will fight their opponents to their opponents' strength, and will have very exciting fights. Guys like Condit, or the modern-day Jorge Gurgel come to mind here.
What are your thoughts on this comparison of mentalities?
condit always does that loves to beat people at their own game
"Chael that isn't even your belt!!"
"Well then whose do you propose it is?"
