    I firmly believe that Condit is the right guy to dethrone GSP at this point in GSP's career.

    Condit is going to come into this fight extremely well rounded, with a ton of heart and precisely aggressive.

    GSP is going to come in a little bit off his game, it's a very tall order to ask him to come in and compete against a guy as good as Condit on your first fight back after major knee surgery but alas this is the burden of a champion.

    It's not that I think Condit is better than GSP (actually I do, very little but I do), I think Condit is just going to get GSP at an optimal time (for Condit) and he's got the right mix of ingredients to give GSP some problems.

    I'm going to be very interested in seeing how Condit approaches the striking game, knowing that he's going to have to defend a takedown or be ready to fight off his back... I like Condit's power and I think he can stop GSP if he finds his chin with a good fist or elbow or kick..

    If GSP lands the takedown (which I"m sure he will), it's going to be really interesting to see what GSP can do with him... Condit is the best MMArtist that GSP has ever fought in my opinion.. just because GSP outwrestled (in dominating fashion) guys who were on paper the better wrestler... doesn't mean he's going to be able to do that to Condit... Condit is very sneaky off his back and he doesn't take breaks... and again he is very well rounded so he's going to have some options as far as trying to go for certain things.. GSP will have to be ready for anything... and that's not something that he generally had to worry about in previous fights in which he easily controlled his opponent via the ground game... like with Hardy or Kos or Alves GSP didnt have to worry about being swept or submitted but he absolutely will have to be prepared for such tings against Condit..

    Well it will be interesting if Carlos can catch GSP is a submission as no one has come close since Hughes tapped him with the arm bar. I don't think he will but Carlos is a finisher and is dangerous pretty much everywhere. I'm still sticking to the fact that I think Condits key to victory is his well timed and accurate flying knee.

    Its not like Condit doesn't even know what he's in for, I think hes by far the most talented and smartest fighter GSP has ever faced....The Stun Gun fight, Stun Gun took Carlos down and Carlos immediately swept him and landed on mount position, making it look easy...Not saying Stun Gun has better grappling than GSP but Condit has a really good legitimate shot at GSP...I think Carlos pulls off the upset

    as long as GSP isnt looking right rusty and terrible, im happy. Praying he doesnt come in looking bad.

    Condit doesn't typically circle like he did in the Diaz fight. He's got real finishing power, decent technique, and he's had a very long time to work on his TDD - this fight isn't a surprise for him; plus fighting at 170 with Kos, Hendricks, Story, etc. he's known this is something to work on.
    I still have GSP winning, but it should be an exciting fight.

    Condit is not going to be able to circle and disengage from GSP like he did against Diaz. I see Condit eating a couple stiff jabs and spending several minutes of each round on his back getting pounded and having his guard passed. Condits best chance will be a flying knee and I bet we see atleast one per round. Hoping Georges is hungry enough for his belt that he gets his killer instinct back and finishes Condit.

    As long as GSP hasn't noticeably declined as a result of his injury or rustiness, he should have no problem with Condit imo.

    No. Hating GJ fighters is cool.

    I don't think so.
