Georges St. Pierre vs. Carlos Condit

Gionti: Give me Condit in this fight. I feel this is the perfect storm for an upset. St. Pierre is coming off a serious injury, Condit has serious knockout power and, in the time GSP was rehabbing, Condit was training.

Manning: St.Pierre via decision. I could be totally wrong about this pick. St. Pierre could come out looking slow, and Condit could finish him early. I just tend to think that if GSP is fighting, he is ready to go, and  expect him to win in a decision in a very close fight.

Martin Kampmann vs. Johny Hendricks

Gionti: I like Hendricks via decision. He has big knockout power in that left handed and outstanding wrestling. Kampmann takes a lot of damage in his fights, but I don’t think he can do that against Hendricks.

Manning: Kampmann via decision. I love Kampmann’s recovery skills, and I think those are key in this fight. Hendricks will crack him, but I think he recovers and wins 2/3 rounds. The X-Factor here is Hendricks’s wrestling – if he uses it, he could grind this out.
