UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre might be one of the finest competitors to ever grace the Octagon but he’s not invincible. Though he holds an overall record of 22-2, both of his losses have involved some form of finish, showing some level of vulnerability even if he’s polished his craft since the stumbles.
While interim title-holder Carlos Condit understand it won’t be easy to stamp a third stoppage on GSP’s record when they fight this weekend at UFC 154, doing so remains his primary goal.
“This fight is something I have been working towards for 10…12…15 years, since I first started competing – not even competing but just training in mixed martial arts. This is a dream of mine. To fight Georges St-Pierre is his hometown for the undisputed belt…it’s surreal and an opportunity of a lifetime,” said Condit of the clash in an interview with UFC Tonight, adding he hopes his evening will end with “a finish over one of the biggest stars in the sport.”
The 28-5 Condit has finished 26 of the opponents he’s beaten including an even split between TKOs/submissions.
Condit also made it clear he isn’t afraid to test St-Pierre’s surgically repaired knee, stating MMA is a “full contact sport” and there’s no rule saying the fan-favorite’s leg is off-limits.
