Condit: I'm hungrier

by Case Keefer | source:

Condit pays the declarations no mind.

“I’m hungrier,” Condit said. “I’m the one that’s been chomping at the bit to get this thing on. I haven’t fought competitively since February. I’ve just been training an sparring and preparing for this opportunity.”

While St. Pierre went to work rehabbing his knee, Condit slaved away in the gym with minimal time off. Condit wisely tried to avoid attention, but he heard the glut of negative voices.

Many mixed martial arts fans continued to argue the judges got it wrong and Nick Diaz actually beat Condit in their UFC 143 interim title fight. Even more people criticized Condit for his decision to wait for St. Pierre to recover instead of defending the interim belt.

“People are going to talk either way,” Condit said. “It’s making me a little antsy to get in there.”

If GSP is 100% of what he used to be he'll win the fight. That's what has me intrigued though, we don't know how good he's going to look and Condit is still very dangerous.

Well at least he didn't say he's ready to fight to the death this time. This is more realistic as point fighting works up a bit of an appetite. Just wonder how he'll out point the best point fighter in the biz?

Completely disagree that Condit is the best fighter GSP has faced. GSP has fought and beaten better wrestlers, strikers, and submission fighters. Heck a great many people feel Condit shouldnt even be in this fight and unless GSP is completely broken he is going to most likely walk right through him.

Guess we're both some crazy motherfuckers then because that's what I see happening.

I have a feeling GSP is coming back more like the GSP that fought Hughes then the one we've seen lately.  That might either get him knocked out, or may get Condit knocked out.  Either way it should be a great fight.

Condit said he would have defended (even agreed to Immediate Diaz rematch before the positive test came back) but said that the UFC offered him no fights.
