I just hope this doesn't mess with GSp's game plan.
I think GSP has the "jab, jab, takedown" game plan down by now ;)
I kid, I kid. GSP is a stud.
When I first heard the news, I immediately felt bad for BJ the most because that was going to be a great fight and now he is left twiddling his thumbs. I also felt bad for the Diaz fans out there, they got the short end of the stick on this deal. I didn't really think about George because he is a machine but this does affect him too, I'm sure he will be able to fine tune his game plan in time though.
The silver lining for me is that Condit is getting a crack at the belt. I'm not a huge NBK fan, although I'm getting there. I never thought he got enough respect being the last WEC WW champ as far as getting instant contendership like others have. I just don't think they could have given the opportunity to a better guy at 170. He is a good dude, a great fighter, and puts on exciting fights. I think this worked out well for him because I had BJ winning if the fight ended up happening and although I am a massive BJ fan, it would have been bitter sweet seeing Condit getting derailed after stringing together some quality wins. I'm sure they will meet up later so its all good.
