Condit Doesnt Feel GSP's Injury Will Be A Factor, His Gusto Will

Georges St. Pierre has been on the sidelines since April 2011 and will finally make his return this weekend at UFC 154 but while he's been away, Carlos Condit has secured himself the UFC interim welterweight title and as such, the right to welcome St. Pierre back to the cage.

Although Condit doesn't feel the injured knee will play a role in the bout, he does think St. Pierre's desire to make a statement will:

“Yeah I do [expect St. Pierre to be more aggressive],” Condit told MMA Mania. “I think that's because of a lot of the criticism that he's got lately, you know he's going to try and make a statement. He's going to try and come back with some gusto and, you know, I think that's going to be a mistake though.”

“I don't think [the injury is] going to take away from Georges' abilities,” Condit explained. “I think that he was still staying sharp and from all reports from his camp he's 100 percent … I'm expecting Georges St-Pierre at his best.”
