Agree... Condit is really dangerous off of his back... but thats where GSP wants the fight, and will likely be for the majority of the fight... GSP has excellent top control and sub defense.... I would be shocked to see Condit pull off a submission once GSP established control, it would likely come from a scramble or transition if it did come about....
Condit's real chance is standing... He isnt just a heavy hitter like Hardy... He has legit Muay Thai and throws in some unorthodox looks to surprise you. He has the power in his Hands, Kicks, and Knees to end it with one shot....
GSP wont be able to play his jab, jab, leg kick, superman punch routine on condit effectiely imo... He will be asking for trouble if he took that approach with Carlos, which he probably wont.... GSP usually has a solid gameplan.
