  1. Brazilian says:

    GSP has this on lockdown I think Kampmann vs. Hendricks is interesting too …. I think Hendricks because Kampmann always gets tagged and if Hendricks touches him he’s going out cold …. Similar to Daley fight

  2. FunkyMonkey says:

    How’s Hendricks sub defense? I don’t know his history all that well but kampman can pull a sub out of nowhere like the alves fight. Thiago had that fight won & kampman pulled that choke out.

    • Brazilian says:

      I don’t see Hendricks getting taken down and Thiago fight was more so Alves stupidity than Kampmann skills ….. Alves doubled and bounced off the cage and Mart got lucky I think ….

      • andy says:

        Kampmann has got this, did you not see his last fight with Ellenberger? Kampmann recovers very quick

        • FunkyMonkey says:

          Ellenberger was an idiot too…run into a clinch with ur head open against a muay tai specialist. What’d he think was gonna happen?!

        • krafty11 says:

          So what you are saying is that Kampmann knows how to capitalize on other fighter’s mistakes? Sounds like a good fight skill to have..

        • B-rad says:

          you dont just run into a thai clinch.. he was rocked from a big punch and kampmann finished him off with big knees

      • Tapitout21 says:

        Kampmann doesn’t get lucky he’s good…has an excellent guillotine and is a world class kick boxer. Not saying Hendricks can’t beat him but the smart money is on kampman

        • B-rad says:

          indeed

        • Super de Duper says:

          He luked up with Thiago. He was seconds from the fight ending. Alvarez rocked him, but for someone decided to go for a double leg with his head down. lol The luck comes in when a fighter who has done the right thing the entire fight does something totally senseless for no reason.

          I guess you’re right. It may not be luck, but just stupidity on Thiago’s part.

  3. B-rad says:

    gee what a surprise… condit is gonna get ragdolled

  4. DMAC says:

    Gsp will set the record for most TDs in a fight. Fuck Condit scary ass, you can’t run from Georges ol Kalib Starn copy cat…

  5. Chris says:

    Gasp! feigned hesitation…

  6. allmightysandman says:

    why wouldn’t he be the massive favourite?

    GSP is going to be better at all aspects that condit and I hope he gets mean again and actually finishes him.

  7. Mike Diaz says:

    Of course GSP is going to come out as the heavy favorite. The oddsmakers know that he’ll use that He-man juice to out muscle Condit, lay on him for 5 rounds, and another five round point victory in the books! He’s GSP, Gonna Score Points!

    Diaz Bros and TEAM PENN!!!!!!

  8. maurice says:

    @DMAC i agree 100 percent. because gsp cant strike with condit, but he also cant play in his guard too long. gsp will take condit down, condit will eventually create space to escape to his feet and/or the ref will stand them up about 100 times. problem is gsp wont win any fans and ONCE AGAIN apologize for not doing shit and stalling the fight away. not going to lie tho, if gsp can hold condit down for 25 mins without being subbed ill be pretty suprised.

    lol at the fans that think condit would use the “greg jackson style” against gsp. um diaz is literally the only man at ww that condit would HAVE to use that strategy against. the stand up is condits world. the ground game is normally condits world, but who knows against this ultimate lay n prayer. one things for sure condit is the most complete and capable fighter gsp has ever stepped into the cage with.

  9. 123 says:

    Carlos Condit Wins By 2nd Round TKO, Then Loses The Belt By Decision In A Rematch.

  10. stephen riddle says:

    I just want to see nick diaz fight for gods sake! Gsp will win, condit better sleep with that belt on his days are numbered with it. Carlos better hope he never meets diaz again because it would be a first round finish for diaz by way of sub. Of course.

    • slacker says:

      Yeah, hope to see Diaz fight again. I am sure he and Condit will fight again. They have unfinihsed business, in a way. But, 1st round sub.? You are dreaming.

  11. slacker says:

    I think Condit has a great chance of winning this fight. One thing Condit never got any credit for in his fight with Diaz was his amazing use of his ambidextrous striking ability and stance. The times when Diaz was able to back him up against the fence, Condit would pivot to southpaw, push back Nick’s left, and cock his own power left, which Diaz had to respect, and it caused him to hesitate. Condit is a complete natural fighting from both stances, and this is a big advantage. He is not forcing it like some guys. Don’t be surprised if he finishes GSP by KO or TKO in the 1st or 2nd round.

    • BJ is KING says:

      I love your optimism, and I agree with what you said, but this is GSP we’re talking about. The only person I think who prepares more for a fight than GSP is JBJ. GSP has a gameplan for everything, I’d love to see GSP try and stand up with him, but I’m expecting GSP to try and frustrate Conduit into moving into GSPs takendown, and from there we see 5 rounds of GSP smothering conduit, but conduit has a decent ground game..

  12. Bjj BB says:

    WOW! Gsp is the favorite? Im really shocked! No, no, no, really! I am really really shocked! Wth! I cant believe it! Wow! Lmao!
