Condit: I want to avenge Jake Shields loss

by Luke Thomas | source: sbnation.com
 

In this exclusive interview from MMA Nation on 106.7 The Fan, Condit tells SB Nation's Luke Thomas that while a title shot would be nice, he'd rather avenge his loss to former Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields. The timing of that fight is also problematic as Shields is currently set to face Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 25. Still, Condit says sooner or later, he'd like to avenge his 2006 loss he suffered to Shields at the Rumble on the Rock tournament

Condit also talks about the atmosphere at Greg Jackson's gym in the absence of Rashad Evans, if he's got a preference among Josh Koscheck, B.J. Penn or Jon Fitch as potential opposition, how soon he's ready to compete, what having a child did for his personal maturity as well as career and much more

Full audio below. The interview begins at approximately 2:28 of the video:

Condit is awesome, but Shields is a stylistic nightmare for him. Condit has always depended on his slick bottom game to make up for his lack of takedown defense, but Shields slick top game completely cancels him out.Shields takes him down and controls him all three rounds and takes an easy 30-27 UD.

The interviewer was awful. He was trying to put words in Carlos's mouth and just asking him if he agreed. And the question about his kid was pretty weird.

Condit has to KO Shields...otherwise, if Jake secures a takedown, it's going to be far more difficult for Condit to sweep Shields than Kim. Shields' top control is something else.

Not interested. It would probably end up looking exactly like their last fight

Yes, in my opinion. I guess I could be wrong, maybe DHK isn't as good as I thought he was, but Shields is vastly over rated IMO. I think Ellenberger will beat him.
