Carlos Condit has a unique perspective on the next welterweight title fight, having fought and lost bouts to both the champion, Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks.

Former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit gives his prediction on a potential match up between Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks on AXS TV's "Inside MMA."

"I'm going to have to go with Georges St. Pierre. Georges St. Pierre - he's just a more polished fighter. Johny Hendricks, he's dangerous and he's got good skills be he is a little rough around the edges when it comes to his whole game, and Georges is just such a technician. He puts things together so well and is just a sharp, clean fighter and I think that's going to make the difference in that match up."

condit knows hendricks got a sub-par boxing/muy thai skills to challenge gsp on the feet!, condit out struck him i believe condit won the fight! unless big rig catches gsp with a wild left hook and puts him to sleep this will be another boring fight dominated by gsp, and a frustrated hendricks stepping into his jab frustrated running after gsp

Interesting.

If the GSP that fought Condit comes to fight Hendricks, he wins.

I predict Hendricks will come out swinging and and try to show up GSP with his own wrestling power and will gas himself out. GSP weathers the storm and dominates a sluggish Hendricks with burned out arms. Phone Post 3.0

Hendricks' accuracy, GSP's chin and Hendricks's TDD are the three things that are most interesting to me when I discuss the potential matchup.

I really do think Hendricks is a huge threat, moreso than Condit, but he IS a less complete fighter and lacks experience... but that power is fucking scary. Condit ate a buncha power shots that GSP probably can't recover from...

I want GSP/Hendricks way more than GSP/Silva at this point. Silva can wait... and there's still the worthy names of Ellenberger and Maia waiting for their opportunity.

I understand what you are saying but it isn't like GSP has a bad chin. He took some huge shots from Condit and survived. The idea that GSP has a bad chin is based on what? Getting haymaker'd by Serra flush on the chin and still fighting back until it was brutal and over? GSP has a good chin and I think he would recover from the same shots Condit took.

I'm not a GSP fan by any stretch but I can't imagine the Hendricks fight being really competitive outside of the handful of moments where Hendricks can create a bit of chaos. Outside of those opportunities, it will be a typical GSP fight and we all already know how that goes. Don't we?

It's all going to come down to cardio, which GSP has better.

Agree. Hendricks has some great attributes, but he's still pretty green as a fighter. Phone Post 3.0

GSP certainly does not have a bad chin, even against Serra he was never out...Serra landed at least a dozen blows.

Against Condit, he took several good shots.

Herpaderp - i agree with condit but it will be interesting to see if hendricks can actually nullify gsps takedowns and maybe even take a page out of gsps book and beat him at his own game, holding top position

T-rex armed Hendricks beats GSP via gaining and maintaining dominant top position while delivering effective g n p, advancing position, attempting subs and avoiding getting swept, reversed, subbed or stood up for lack of any of the previously mentioned??

L oh fucking L!!


A wise man once said "If I woke up in the morning with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised (to see hendricks dominate GSP via maintaining dominant top position and actually doing something with it.)"

the biggest concern i have about hendricks in a 5 round fight is his cardio... other than that he's got everything necessary to dethrone the aging champ.  GSP has been slowing down ever since the Jake Shields fight.

GSP's peak is long gone.  He asked for diaz because even he realizes it.  Hendricks is at the right place at the right time and with all the tools necessary to dethrone GSP.

this year, I believe both Anderson and GSP will lose their titles.  Weidman and Hendricks will win.

I completely disagree that GSP is slowing down. He's fighting better opponents. Of course his competition is going to go up, therefore, making for tougher fights. Too many people think that a fighter is starting to suck if their performance isn't as impressive going against higher level fighters.

I do agree that Weidman beats Anderson.

^ he is fighting better opponents... no argument there.

Here's another problem i cant get over... hendricks has five rounds (25 minutes) to knock GSP out... whereas GSP has to not only survive 5 rounds (25 minutes) but also win at least 3 of those rounds against a division 1 champion wrestler who hits like a mack truck. 

GSP's inability to finish will be his downfall against a guy like Hendricks.

Now GSP didnt have a problem with Koscheck, but he had a to break his orbital in the first... Hendricks is a bit of a different animal.  Johnny can change the fight with one punch.   GSP is gonna have to at least hurt Hendricks

GSP should be the favorite but I think his time has come and Hendricks is the worst type of opponent for him at this time.

GSP IS SCARED! this is getting so out of hand already. What kind of champion in anything is afraid of even the number one contender. He would rather take his belt to the grave getting destroyed by a bigger badder Condit (Anderson Silva), then fight a semi one trick pony fighter in Hendricks. I LOVE Hendricks.. I think he is the next big thing in the WW division. If he learns some ground and pound and how to use his right hand, the man is a monster at that weight.

GSP is running like a bitch after cruising through Diaz, and only really faced any kinda danger verses Condit for maybe 45 seconds after he was kicked in the head and attacked on the ground.

Condit is only saying this to see them fight. After losing to both men, he realizes the quickest way to the belt is allowing Hendricks an chance to turn off the lights on GSP, and then getting another chance at Hendrick and defeating him.

While Hendricks is more dangerous, his style is much more easily defeated. Most fights dont end with the man on the bottom finishing the fight by KO, Condit isnt a submission specialist or a decorated wrestler. If he is going to win a fight its going to be with a majority of the time standing. Hendricks while a good wrestler would much rather end the night with the big, Mack truck, left then grind out his opponent for 15-25 mins.

Lets be honest if I was GSP, I might let him take me down and try to sweep him cause he showed no talent with his ground game, nor could keep Condit from advancing positions. Why waste his energy taking him down and squirming to get into position when full mount, side, and back are easily taken from the bottom by sweep. Plus its much harder to throw a left hook laying on someone. If Hendricks gets half the care taking and has half the brain GSP has, hes the next name were going to be running to see for the next 5 years in the WW division. Either way if GSP runs to get destroyed by Silva, Hendricks gets a shot at the vacant title vs Condit or Rory.. He should be favorite verses both men.

seems like every opponent gsp faces is going to beat him. hendricks don't have a chance against gap. hendricks will get his ass handed to him. plain and simple. you can try to analyze the fight before it happens. gsp always finds a way to win. that is why he has faced all odds. how many times have we said he was gonna get beat. every fighter he faced says its his time. every fighter he faced has had a good track record of winning.

You know what they say about a broke ass clock right?

Eventually a guy like Silver Spoon will be right because GSP can't win forever. Eventually he will lose.

That's when Silver Spoon will remind us of his prediction!
