His chances on winning this fight just went up - whether it's .1%, 10, 40 or whatever, if Greg Jackson trains/corners you it's a positive.
I like it. Mir has always been a favorite of mine. I still believe he is one of, if not the best HW submission guys in MMA. I know people are ready to yell out other names like Werdume and Nog, but I don't believe they are better in MMA. Nog WAS good at taking a beating and then subbing guys. Not to mention, that was back in the Pride days. He's had two subs in 6 years. Not that impressive IMO. Werdum hasn't subbed too many guys either, but at least he has improved with every fight and started collecting KOs. He's definitely found his rhythm. Mir has transformed himself several times and continues to find ways to win and stay on top. IMO, he rarely get the credit he deserves on the forum. He's had awesome comebacks in life and in fights. He's almost never in a boring fight either. He either goes for the KO, rips off a limb or gets rocked and does the truffle shuffle before he finally goes out. ALL equally entertaining!!

Condit earned the label with the Nick Diaz fight.
Well earned I might add. And a factual opinion doesnt make anyone what your name call is.
I was a big fan of Condit until that fight. If fighters werent rewarded by moonwalking
they wouldnt do more and more of it.
when you see Guida become one thats the ultimate rsponse.
I've got to ask...what is a "factual opinion"? Those two words mean opposite things.
A fact is something objectively known. It is a fact that Carlos Condit beat Nick Diaz under the rules of MMA.
An opinion is not objectively known. It is an opinion that the judges were wrong and Nick Diaz should have won the fight.
Now some opinions are informed by by facts, and we call these conclusions. And not everything stated as a fact is in fact one (these are called inaccuracies or lies).
But there is no such thing as a factual opinion. Something is one thing or the other.
