Anyways, it was a great fight and the first really good GSP fight I've seen in a while.
Man, I'm not gonna jump down your throat because I've been enjoying your posts for a long time and I like your work, but I have to fundamentally disagree with this. I've only watched the fight once but my take-home impressions were only of a dominant victory for GSP. Moral victory, PRIDE rules, Diaz rules, whatever, GSP took this fight.
I agree that GSP took some lumps (that head kick had me marking out like a 12 year old watching RAW) but Condit got the worse of the striking (ground and standing) in all rounds but the third in my opinion.
Can't wait to see Condit fight again, that guy is a badass. No quit in him whatsoever, he won GSP's AND the Montreal crowd's respect with that performance
