UFC Interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit appeared on the Nov. 13 installment of "UFC Tonight" and discussed Saturday's main event with welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

St-Pierre is coming off a year break from fighting, due to a knee injury, surgery, and rehab.

The two are both members of Jackson's MMA, but discounted the significance, as they have not trained to together.

I have been around Georges a little while he’s been training," said Condit. "But not a whole lot. We haven’t ever sparred together. It’s not really an advantage for either one of us.”

"Georges is such a dynamic fighter. He is an incredible athlete. He is a powerful, explosive guy. Between takedowns and strikes, there is a lot to deal with.”

“I really feel like Georges is the undisputed champion. He has been so dominant in the division for the last several years, he has been undefeated and until someone defeats him, he is the champion.”

Condit was asked directly of he though GSP's knee is fair game.

“Yeah man, I think so," said Condit. "If someone in the cage, you can’t say ‘hey man that is off limits.’ There are no time outs, there are no substitutions.”

“I wouldn’t say that I’ve been leg kicking any more or less than before," Condit added.

“I’ve really made a point to work on my overall athletic ability. I’m really working hard on my strength and conditioning. I’ve filled in some holes in my game I knew I would need to fix before I fight Georges. I’ve trained with some of the best guys in the world on a daily basis, and it’s not a fight, but it’s pretty close. I’m really not too concerned.”

“This fight is something I have been working toward for 10-12-15 years since I first started competing, and not even competing but training in mixed martial arts. This is a dream of mine. To fight GSP for the title in his home town for the undisputed belt is both surreal and an opportunity of a lifetime.”

When asked how he planned to win, Condit was succinct.

“Through hard work and hopefully a finish over one of the biggest stars in the sport.”

Yes, it's a fight, but I hope his gameplam doesn't revolve around destroying George's knee again. Fair game, but still a bit cheap. Phone Post

If Condit wins, I just hope it will be because he beat GSP, and not because he beat GSP's knee. Does that make sense?

lol @ acting like being "buzzed out" is a detriment to Nick that should make him easier to finish.

So in the second primetime, mike winklejohn stressed keeping his fighters safe as part of the gameplan ( this was right after the story about him losing his rye) But we regularly see condit and jones use potentially career ending knee kicks. That is pretty hypocritical. Phone Post

Honestly I wouldn't even really consider GSP as a Jackson's MMA fighter. Sure he trains there somtimes, but if you had to pick, he'd be considered a Tri Star product. Greg Jackson just wants credit for the best fighters.

I knew Winklejohns plan for this fight was going to be the oblique kick.  I've had a feeling about this all week that Condit is going to blow out GSP's knee with a kick....If that happens I am going to feel so ripped off.

Doubt GSPs fixed knee is more susceptible to that attack than his good one

GSP has game planned enough so that if NBK does kick at the knee he has the timing down for some type of counter. It's all fair game. GSP is one of the best at game plans. If NBK does attack the knee GSP has a counter for it.
Isnt attacking the knee the same as GSPs takedowns? It would be expected right?

Is NBK skilled enough to have something for GSPs counters?

Don't worry about his knee. As soon as Condit throws a kick... Boom takedown. He'll be fighting off his back the whole time. Phone Post

If GSP felt he deserved to be called one of his coaches for years, then yes, Greg does deserve credit. Phone Post
