All of gsp fights now go 5 rounds. This won't be any different. But i would respect condit more if he defends the title at least once before gsp

I met condit 3 times. Don't like his attitude. Can't say I am a big fan of his and I wore his Sig t shirt sat. I may have jinxed diaz by doing it. But he defends once I will have more respect for him

GSP knows he has a glass jaw, which explains "The King of Decisions" style over the past years. If Condit wants to stay on the outside, score points and avoid a fight, he is in for a rude awakening because there is no one better at that than GSP.

Condit needs a flying knee to KO GSP, otherwise it's another UD for "Rush". (kind of ironic nickname these days)

I like to see Condit employ the same technique against GSP. I think it could work but Condit would have to be more conservative simply because GSP is so fast. Condit cannot land leg kicks at will like he did against Diaz. He would have to keep moving and only throw them when GSP has not set.

The recipe is there for Condit and I hope he uses it and I hope we get a new champion. No disrespect toward GSP. I like the guy but I like a warrior more.

Yeah, that raised an eyebrow with me as well.

Please tell me it's not because he got clipped by Serra, pmoney. 24 fights and finished once by strikes. I don't get it. How does that equal a glass jaw?

Not just clipped by Serra, he got hit in the back of the head and it staggered him. He's been in there with the likes of Alves, Koscheck, Hardy, and Penn and never been staggered, at least to my recollection.

GSP doesn't have a glass jaw, makes no sense to say he does.

All it takes is one spectacular finish from GSP to make everyone forget about all his decisions, you know its true.
I'm waiting for it

If we were to quantify GSP's chin, i wouldn't rate it higher than an 80. So maybe not glass chin(depending on what you really mean by that word) but i would certainly say its lesser compared to the rest of the top of the division.

Georges St. Pierre definitely has a glass jaw. There's no other explanation for his desire to not be hit repeatedly in it.

This fight will be decided in the first round. Either St. Pierre is too rusty to work his magic or he throws Condit to the floor and has his way with him.

C'mon you guys. I don't like to bash GSP but the one time he was tested in the stand up and rocked, he crumpled like a wet napkin, couldnt recover at all from shots from a guy who had never tko'd anyone in his career. He then proceeds to fight not to lose for the rest of his career after said tko he faced. He is really that good that he hadnt really been rocked up until serra and good enough not to get rocked since but its clear he has changed for the worse, and its because of his mediocre chin and stun recovery.

@ last 2 posts...and pmoney

there are only a select few fighters out there to like to get hit in the face repeatedly...and also take note of where they are in the rankings. Guys like Stout and Leben will never get near a title shot and that is why GSP is a long reigning champion.

Getting hit behind the ear IS NOT his jaw. Get that through your head. Jonathan Goulet and Keith Jardine have glass jaws, St Pierre does not. Serra clipped him BEHIND THE EAR, you know the same spot that dropped Machida (Shogun) and Franklin (Belfort), among numerous others, were dropped...so under your line of thinking they have weak chins too right? Serra followed up and finished him, just like virtually every other fighter who has rocked and finished his opponent. GSP had an off fight FIVE YEARS AGO and has not lost since and has fought smarter. yeah his last 2 fights havent been the most exciting, but at the end of the day he is the champion.

Maybe GSP hasnt been hit that much because he is that good at defensive striking and implements his gameplan a lot more effectively and quickly than his opponent? Kind of like Anderson Silva...or does he have a glass chin too because he prefers not to get hit in the face?

Hate him for his style of fighting, thats fine, but if you are going to put him down, at least get your arguments straight.
