Condit: Hardy made a 'big miscalculation'

by Steve Marrocco | source:

"Anything's possible," Condit said. "Apparently, [Hardy] feels very confident in his ground game these days. He's saying he's going to choke me out, which I think is just trying to play head games.

"But he might try to take me down if I start damaging him on the feet."

That's the ideal scenario for Condit, not only because he feels confident in his standup abilities, but because he gets a little payback.

He says he hasn't paid Hardy any mind in the buildup to Saturday's fight. But he'll enjoy proving he's a better fighter in the most physical way possible.

"I'm going to get in there, and not only show the fans what I got, but I'm going to show him that he made a big miscalculation," Condit said.

It's alright though. We now know he doesn't have the power to matter at higher levels in the weight class. It's what Bisping DIDN'T or COULDN'T do that is the rub.

Hardy's tough, but I hope Condit breaks his face open.

Boring decision, but Condit wins. My money is on Condit.

This fight is good. Striking wise, i cant really see Carlos inflicting much damage on Hardy, he's got an iron chin. And if Condit gets it to the ground, Hardy's takedown defense and grappling will be tested, which im sure will be laughable. Especially considering all the shit he's been talking about wrestlers nowadays.
