Yeah, I'm a big fan of Condit and a lot of it is for that very reason. He showed cage IQ and the discipline to stick to a winning plan vs Diaz, and he showed against MacDonald that he keeps his head in bad situations and he's never out of the fight.
He's a pretty well-rounded fighter, and he strikes you as the kind of guy who has the right mentality to pull the upset. At least, that's what he seems like to me. Whether he's good enough to do it or not remains to be seen, but I don't see him freezing up when the bell rings.
