Watch UFC 154 PPV Live on The UG!

GSP is a heavy favorite over Carlos Condit Saturday night, with odds around Condit (+300) vs GSP (-380). That means if you bet 100 bucks on Condit and he wins, you make $300. Bet $100 on GSP and he wins, you make less than $30.

However, a quick survey on Twitter reveals a more divided opinion among fighters themselves.

Like both guys, and think they are two of the most respectful and best representatives for the sport. That said I think GSP will win, but am rooting for Carlos.

War NBK!!

Belcher is pretty confident in Condit. I think Silva-Bonnar was an easier pick in the last 2 months let alone a year

8 pros above who like Condit, so it is far from unanimous.

I think frank trigg is but hurt over the way gsp man handled him. I also think the hitman picked condit because that's who he would rather fight since he already has a win over him. Phone Post

Just pointing this out, Carlos is the son of a politician, he is far from 'white trash'. smh. Idk this tweet is first in line.

More interesting than the picks is the fact that most folks, pros or otherwise, are picking the winner by decision - especially in the case of GSP.

No argument - other than I can't see CC winning by decision. If he finds a way to win it surely must be by KO or TKO. Despite his Diaz performance, it is very difficult to imagine a world wherein CC dominates 5 rounds against GSP.

I am *hoping* for a finish either way.

Hard choice.

GSP out with a very serious injury. Then spends months in rehab on the injury. Then has a normal sized camp for this fight. We'll see pretty quick if GSP really is 100%. (He won't know it until then either)

Condit out for 9 months by choice. Spends months increasing strength and working on his weaknesses with only GSP to concern himself with. Feels he needed the time to be able to beat GSP.

Anyways. If I have to make a call I agree with most. Either a CC finish or a GSP ud.
