I think he badly underestimated GSP's top game. I think he swept him twice but GSP recovered and put him in his back again both times iirc. It seemed like he was happy not to expend energy defending the takedown becuase he felt he could threaten with subs or anticipated being more successful was sweeps. That was a mistake because GSP held him down and beat him up.
Condit's still a bad, bad man, but with so many wrestlers at 170 he needs to improve his defensive wrestling. Even so, GSP is so hard to stop because he's so good a disguising his shots.
Goremire's rules for enjoyable MMA forum posting
Rule 1: REMEMBER that you cannot reason someone out of an argument they did not reason themselves into in the first place.
Rule 2: Albert Einstein once wrote a foreword endorsing a book rubbishing the theory of plate tectonics. History proved him wrong. Moral of the story? REMEMBER: We all say stupid stuff sometimes!
Rule 3: NEVER attempt to mediate in a flame-war between GSP and BJ Penn nuthuggers debating GSP/Penn II. It won't end well.
