I would love to see Carlos Condit as the UFC welterweight champion and I think he has what it takes.

He's a fantastic striker with nasty jitz and he's confident he can finish any wrestler who tries to hold him down. And that's exactly what he's always done apart from the title fight with GSP, who's one of the GOATs.

He was coming home with a wet sail against Hendricks and arguably would have run over the top of him if it was a five-round fight. And who knows what would have happened in the Woodley fight. He's a slow starter and he'd already taken Tyron's biggest bombs when he did his ACL.

Condit's a fighter who runs over the top of guys with his superior cardio, grit, heart and finish-minded technique. That's exactly what we saw against Rory. He poured it on and finished him inside three rounds.

Rory looked like fucking elephant man after that fight and could have been deceased given another 20 seconds or so. That fight shook Rory up in a big way - he's spoken about it before.

So yeah, if you're trying to pour cold water on that win, you're wasting your time.

Taking someone down once, landing a total of 1 strike on the ground, while being smashed by a guy on his back does not constitute winning a round. 29-27 condit before the finish.
