Carlos Condit has the chance of a lifetime when he meets Georges St. Pierre at UFC 137.
Condit had been originally pegged to face BJ Penn in a number one contenders match but due to Nick Diaz being removed from the main event, Condit was put in as a replacement.
Condit talked about his opportunity this week while speaking with Buddhasport.com and gave his thoughts on his place in the welterweight division as well as how things have gone between himself and GSP at Greg Jackson's camp:
” 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.”
On the training with GSP topic:
“We actually never did. 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 somebodies style.”
