Condit Ready for Hendricks: "He's Called Me Out in the Past, This is His Chance to Try to Back That Up" | MMAWeekly.com
“Fighting Johny Hendricks is the perfect opportunity for Carlos to earn another shot at the UFC welterweight title,” Condit’s manager, Malki Kawa, said in a statement to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday night.
“While I was disappointed to hear that Rory MacDonald is injured, I am glad that the UFC was able to find a strong replacement for the fight in Johny Hendricks,” said Condit. “He is one of the toughest welterweights in the world, and has quickly risen up the ladder in our division. |
“We are similar in that we like to stay active and aggressive in our fights, so this should be a great fight for the fans to watch.”
Condit is never one to back down from a difficult challenge, however, and Hendricks promises to be just that.
“He’s called me out in the past, and now is his chance to try to back that talk up. I’ll be ready for him.”
