Condit: GSP's 'gusto' could be a big mistake


"Yeah I do [expect St. Pierre to be more aggressive]," Condit told MMA Mania. "I think that's because of a lot of the criticism that he's got lately, you know he's going to try and make a statement. He's going to try and come back with some gusto and, you know, I think that's going to be a mistake though."

While Condit will be unable to get a true gauge on St. Pierre's level of aggression until the fight actually begins, one thing "The Natural Born Killer" isn't trying to gauge is the surgically reconstructed knee of GSP.

Despite suffering an injury that would end the career of a lesser athlete, Condit is not focusing on St. Pierre's health, expecting the injury to play no role in the outcome of the fight.

"I don't think [the injury is] going to take away from Georges' abilities," Condit explained. "I think that he was still staying sharp and from all reports from his camp he's 100 percent ... I'm expecting Georges St-Pierre at his best."

  The kind that chase each other for 25 minutes, with the occasional paw slap.

I really think Carlos's best shot is to go for broke and lay it all on the line and be the killer that got him the title shot in the first place. If he tries to play it safe he gets dominated for 5 rounds.

What they should say is that he used kicks that are 100% legal in an MMA fight.  I'm sure they'll say they were cheap because of the surgery, but he's used a heavy leg kick strategy for years and has used to side kick/ teep kick to the knee on many opponents.  Winklejohn teaches that kick which is why you see Jones, Condit, and Cowboy using it.  Nothing wrong with using a legal kick.
