Condit: I'm the best welterweight in the world

by Mike Fleig | source: buddhasport.com
 

Mike Fleig- Obviously you are fighting Georges St Pierre, one of the pound for pound best and possibly one of the greats the sport has ever seen. So what do you think of your new UFC 137 opponent?

Carlos Condit- " 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."

Mike Fleig- GSP and yourself are associated with the Greg Jackson Camp, so how often have you and Georges actually trained together?

Carlos Condit- "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."

I'm sure he was joking. I will just pretend he never said it. He realizes he's not the best in the "world". I just know he does.

Kos would differ, his orbital was smashed when he just attacked...Hardy almost lost an arm just attacking, Alves was on his back dominated and then punched in the mouth after just attacking and Fitch's face was hamburger meat with your simple theory...Oh and Pen quite after attacking...

Not correct. He was with FITNHB in Abq first, mullet lady. Then he went to AZ combat in Arizona, then he came to Jackson's. Looks like you were the one not watching very closely.

 Don't get defensive about someone calling you on the thread title.  When I saw it on the front page I thought it was pretty pathetic of UG news to write it that way and then read the article and see the actual quote was different.  People might not be able to distinguish how much of a difference there is with the word "think" in there but it's pretty significant.
