Normally GSP passes with ease and ups in side control as he pleases, he got there a few times, but Condit got back into full guard every time. An extremely good showing for Condit, it was GSP for 4 out of five rds, but Condit did well. Great fight.
My comment was directed more at those that blame GSP for not winning with KO's. Condit DID come to fight, but his opponent (and I think he realized it early in the fight), was way too strong for him physically. And while he guarded pretty well, fact of the matter was that he lost most of the rounds because GSP was controlling the canvas. And Condit seldom had GSP in trouble while down. And you don't win MMA by just guarding.
