Why don't you mention when Kampmann humbled Condit? That was Condits first UFC fight, so I think nervousness played a factor. I chalk that one up to UFC jitters, as I do the Codit/MacDonald fight...Give the kid a break!
I disagree that Rory took the first 2 rounds against Condit. Condit did more damage the first 2 rounds, Rory just got some takedowns, but didn't do much with them. I remember at the end of one of the rounds Condit landed a jumping front kick right to the face. I can't remember what round I scored for Condit but I remember I had it 1-1 going into the third.
Other than Nate, who is a LW, the dude's most impressive wins are Pyle and Mills. He has accomplished nothing compared to Penn, and I hope Penn sees this interview and gets pissed because of it. BJ with a fire lit under his ass could be very bad for Rory. He's not going to be so confident if he can't take BJ down and starts getting his ass beat...because I honestly think BJ smokes him on the feet if he's in good shape. Does anyone actually think it will be easy as cake for Rory to just take BJ down and beat him down? I don't...
