A win over a grisly veteran like Lytle would set him up for a top five fighter in the division. It could be a number of different people Fitch, Sheilds, Kampman rematch, Kos or even GSP depending on how the divisions play out over the next 4-5 months. Either way the welter weight division is really starting to heat up with alot of hungry up and comers. Who knows, maybe we'll see Hughs make another run haha.
Agreed. But imo, we've recently found out more about Condit than we did about Hardy in this fight. Depending on Hardy's next fight, I think we'll see if Hardy is in fact overrated....assuming the UFC gives Hardy someone relevant. Its hard to deny though that Hardy's a tough SOB and getting a KO over him certainly looks good on Condit's resume.
