Georges St. Pierre makes his long awaited return to the Octagon next month at UFC 154 when he faces Carlos Condit for the UFC Welterweight Championship and in the lead up to the belt the Champion talked to UFC.com about the fight, his opponent, and how he feels the bout will end. Check out the quotes and video below:
“It's been a year and a half. … I'm back stronger and better than ever. The hardest part to being out for so long is to be inactive, to be unable to do what you like to do for a living. This will be the biggest challenge of my whole career. I have to fight the toughest opponent I ever fought. I have to come back from a long layoff, a big inactive period of time.
“The most interesting thing Carlos has is his capacity for adaptation. He can adapt to any opponent he fights. That's why he's so good. He's very skilled but he's also very smarter.
“I'm not afraid of Carlos Condit. I hope Condit focuses on targeting my knee. It's not a weak link anymore. There is nothing that I can't do now that I was able to do before.
“I will leave with the belt. There is no doubt in my mind.”
