Carlos Condit: I've always been a fan of Georges St. Pierre

“I’ve always been a big fan of Georges, I’ve admired his style and kinda of the way he carries himself and I’m honored to get in their and challenge him for the belt and step in the cage with him. With all that aside I think that I’m the best welterweight in the world and I’ve been trying to prove that every single time I get in their and this fight is going to be no different. We actually never trained together. There was a time or two when we were training in the gym at the same time, but I think we kind of seen this fight on the horizon. We were always cool and always friendly with each other but he would kind of be doing his thing and I would be doing my own thing. We have never sparred and that would be the best way to get to know somebody’s style.” BuddhaSport

The Natural Born Killer Carlon Condit will get his shot at Georges St. Pierre’s UFC Weterweight title on October 29th. The fight will headline the stacked UFC 137 fight card, which will have the original title contender Nick Diaz now in the co-main event bout with BJ “The Prodigy” Penn. Despite representing being under the same roof Jackson’s-Winklejohn’s MMA, Carlos Condit declares he never sparred or even trained with Georges St. Pierre.

Jackson’s MMA is well-known for producing elite Mixed Martial Arts talent, such as the reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and the former team member Rashad Evans. The feud between the two went public after Jon Jones decided to fight for what was then Shogun Rua’s title, instead of giving up on the opportunity in favor of injured Rashad Evans. One way or another, looks like there’s not enough “warm feelings” between Condit and St. Pierre to create such situation, in combination with a fact that both are two of the classiest fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

    GSP finishes this fight. Condit will over commit on something and GSP will capitalize on it and end the fight.

    Apart of me wants Condit to beat that ass, but, the fan in me wants GSP to win. I think of Condit wins, GSP will regain his killer instinct and go in there and show the world what hes really capable of.

    Exciting times. Either way, I feel its a win win for a fan of the man called GSP. He wins, well, he adds yet another victory and defense and another mill in his pocket.

    He loses, the GSP of old comes back and plows through the division again to murder the champ at the time.

    It’s good to hear a fighter be respectful and appreciate another martial artists. I understand when guys are promoting the fight, but the fans know the reason they are saying half the stuff is to get people to watch the fight. The problem is that we as fans know that and therefore the tough talk does not make the fight that much more intriguing.

    Condit by 2nd rd. TKO. I think Condit might catch GSP like Serra did. But GSP is a beast. I’d like to see GSP really just let go and not play it so safe. Wishful thinking.

    Enjoy your day lowkickers.

    carlos condit is probly the toughest fighter in the ww division, you really think gsp is gonnna get his first finish in over two years on him when he couldnt even finish dan hardy? thats wishful thinking. i think this is a lose lose situation for gsp because if he wins its gonna be another desicion victory, and by that point people are gonna start getting sick of gsp, and if he loses then he lost to a big underdog. there is no chance in hell that gsp will finish condit. im chosing carlos to win because i for one am sick of gsp’s lack of killer instinct and making excuses for not finishing, look what just happend to his last opponent. condit on the other hand has visciouse killer instinct and will be trying to kill gsp all five rounds.

    One of the WEAKest comments I’ve ever read

  • TheRealDeal

    Condit is a class act and this will be by far GSP’s biggest test. Condit is hungry and hungry stands for a lot in MMA. The belt could switch hands on this one.

  • TheRealDeal

    I agree totally. WEAK as hell.

  • TheRealDeal

    “Beat that ass”???

  • HoustonsOwn

    Stop being a fan asap.

    GSP is so dominate, until you’ve fought a guy that tough, who knows?

    Condit has shown moments of power and incredible toughness, but also some decent sized holes in his game,

    GSP tends to win by decision lately. If your the guy fighting him, either getting stopped or fighting defensively and taking a beating for 5 rounds aren’t two very good choices.

  • codemaster

    I like Condit, and though he may respect GSP, I am certain he will bring it–and GSP knows that. I am really looking forward to this fight–though I believe GSP will dominate again–I am ready and willing to be surprised by Condit.

    Condit has improved since beating MacDonald in the nick of time–but GSP has also improved. The last fight with Shields was not a good gauge of his improvement since he was in survival mode due to the blatant eye-poke by Shields.

    I have noticed that GSP’s opponents fight more conservatively in title matches–Shields, Koscheck, Hardy and Alves did not seem like the same fighters they were in contender matches. They seemed to be fighting not to lose–and did not bring it to the champion. I don’t think Condit will be so cautious, and will bring it.

    This will be a great fight.

    It’s simple really. It’s easy to go out and say, oooo this guy is stopping everyone. Well that’s your job, go out there and put it on the line and climb the ranks. In title fights, its a lot different…you are more tentative, reluctant and “safe” because one mistake will cost you your dream.

    All GSP has to do is prevent people from taking his belt. So its up the the opponent to bring the fight to GSP, which they don’t because of the things said above. They don’t want to blow their chance. Koscheck just stood in front of GSP. Hardy was too slow. Alves just wasn’t ready. Shields likes to poke eyes, but he was doing what he had to do to win but failed.

    There was an article about Cain Velasquez and some dude started saying some funny stupid shit, then kept saying if anyone disagrees “Then come at me bro”…..Well that guy got 120+ weaks. That guy will have the record for a long time
