Condit beat Hendricks.
true story, WATCH THE FIGHT.
hendricks comes aggressive, condit dodges most, withstands the rest, hurts him with strikes of his own. hendricks takes condit down and doesnt DARE fight on the ground, he gets up and keeps the fight standing.(1st min)
hendricks keeps being aggressive while condit dodges even more as hendricks starts to gas since the middle of the 1st round(true story). hendricks starts losing the standup badly, gets the fight to the ground, gets swept, condit gets his back.
fortunately for hendricks, he gets back up before the bell.
round 2 is a slightly gassed hendricks losing the striking exchange, taking condit down, condit beating hendricks up from the bottom, hendricks posing no offense, and condit getting back up.
round 3 is all condit, hendricks looks completely gassed, all he can do is charge for a takedown to stop getting beat up and then hanging on for dear life against sweeps/subs/strikes.
there is no way hendricks won that. hendricks lost on the standup AND ON THE GROUND. the fact that judges are uneducated and think the bottom guy is always losing is irrelevant. hendricks got beat up. if the fight had hendricks CONSTANTLY on top as its rules, hendricks would STILL get beat up. thats just how much condit outclassed him ont he ground. it looked like a blue belt against a 3-stripe brown belt, it was silly.
yes, i know, "grappling is efficient too". i LOVE grappling, i recently started competing in bjj(not a badass, but for fun) but condit even looked so calm and relaxed while pWning hendricks ON THE GROUND. sweeps, sub attempts, back control before hendricks got completely gassed. this was stupid. hendricks looked completely outclassed. he was so threatened that he couldnt even risk attempting a strike usualy.let alone doing any damage. even GSP stands up to strike and/or use elbows goddammit. hendricks didnt, because he COULDNT. because HE WAS LOSING ON THE GROUND as if condit was some bjj ace that had pulled guard.
improve scoring, THEN see who wins.
