Condit: ‘Pressure’ key to upset
According to oddsmakers, UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (28-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) has about a 25 percent chase of defeating UFC title holder Georges St-Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) at this weekend’s UFC 154 event.
Not surprisingly, Condit doesn’t agree.
Instead, the “Natural Born Killer” believes he’s primed for the upset, and he pins his chances on one simple approach: pressure, pressure, pressure.
“I feel like I just have the ability to threaten from any position, whether we’re standing or the fight is on the ground,” Condit said. “I try to finish from my back if I get put there, which I think is a big difference from some of the contenders he’s fought in the past.”
