Condit is the true champ, not hendrix. hendrix-lawler fight is fixed and
hend already won…..lawler just got into top 10 and should not be fighting
for title. everybody knows that condit should be fighting for title……
Condit won IMO. that decision was pretty crazy. ok Hendricks fought really
good. he won the first round, but he didn’t dominate it. Carlos did threw
some good punches and kicks, and was very effective. And after that Carlos
won second round and dominated the third. the only thing Hendricks did the
last round was getting the takedowns. and Carlos threw much more strikes
from the bottom than Hendricks did from the top. i thought Carlos won that
fight and he should have been fighting for the belt a second time.
Wow I never knew condit was such a nice guy !! He always looked a little
arrogant but guess that’s not the case guess it just his beastyness I use
to not like him as much but now I most defently respect him he’s a cool kat
Condit won the fight. Rogan and Goldberg made such a big deal about
Hendricks’ takedowns, but didn’t give Condit enough credit for his standup
AND ground attacks and defense. Why does it seem that ONLY takedowns win
fights nowadays? You should only get extra points for a takedown IF you do
something with it. Just laying on someone, flailing your arms around is
not impressive. Fighting has many different aspects, and STANDUP should
get it’s just reward. The only way it gets rewarded these days is if it
gets a knockout. However, submissions are no longer required to legitimize
takedowns. Also, promotion had a lot to do with the decision. At the
time, Condit had recently lost to GSP. And, the UFC wasn’t ready to give
him the win since Hendricks was great shows. Better promotion and more
money for a GSP vs. Hendricks fight, ergo Hendricks wins this fight.
condit won this fight –period. he was robbed..i can see the notes being
passed from Dana white to the judges now saying “make sure Condit loses, or
you lose your job”
Condit got hit with full power shots from Hendricks. And didn’t go down
like every one thinks…I think Hendricks is overrated in power…he has
knockout power but anyone can get knocked out including Hendricks by
gsp..we shall see nov 2013…..
Obviously, he defended his belt what? 7 times? When you defend your belt
for as long as that you get an immediate rematch because there’s no such
thing as ‘the perfect fighter.’ No one’s always on point. And Hendricks is
not gonna beat GSP… no way. Condit might beat GSP if and only if he gets
his wrestling defense on point and his submission skills on point (sorta
like Pettis against Bendo).
It just sounds like you love Condit and hate that fact that he lost. It’s
his fault for not being able to defend those takedowns. Also, Hendricks
hurt his hand in the fight and still won. Hendricks is better, just deal it
with it man.
Right, and I’m supporting Hendricksin that fight and have been since he
first burst onto the scene undefeated. The difference is I’m able to view
fighters objectively and see that Condit is by far a much more skilled
fighter. Hendricks is a better wrestler. If you’re only interested in
wrestling and KO power that’s okay, but fighting is about technique.
Hendricks will KO GSP (hopefully) then Condit will TKO him in the 4th round
to take the belt.
Condit looked great in his last fight. If they aren’t gonna give him Rory
Macdonald, then they should give him winner of Shields/Maia! Shields would
b a rematch like Kampman in a fight which he lost and would be looking 2
avenge a loss, and Damian Maia would stylistically be a very interesting
fight I think.
I’m french canadian and i like GSP for sure but i have to be honnest and
say that his style is not very entertaining at all. Not much people can
appreciate ground work with Jiu-Jitsu. I agree with you strikers are more
spectacular. GSP less dominant side is striking for sure. He tried with
Diaz and had to rely on ground and pound to get him. Condit weakness is
defense vs ground n pound. unless he would have won vs Hendricks. In my
opinion the most dangerous fighter coming up is Rory Macdonald.
Rogan said it best. The judges shouldnt even been ring side. They should be
in a room with a bunch of monitors so they can see the fight from a bunch
of different angles cause they miss so much shit sitting that close and
have only angle to judge from.
Yeah I respect your point fully, GSP used to have the striking magic but
has become cautious, Rory will be a great but he’s also suffering from the
boring syndrome like against Ellenberger. I do love all aspects of MMA, but
the true excitement lies with the striker’s for sure because they actually
hurt opponent’s, not grind em down through grappling against the cage. I
agree alot with Diaz, but it’s a shame he couldn’t back it up and gave a no
show against GSP. Condit actually competed.
