Carlos Condit out to finish Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154

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.
