SD: You seemed to let your hands go much earlier in your fight with Hendricks than you did with St. Pierre. Do you think if you had fought as aggressively then as you did this time, you might have beaten Georges?

CC: I fought the fight against Hendricks that I wish I had fought against GSP, honestly, with the stand-ups and the striking and everything. You know what? With Georges, you've got to get in there and do what you have to do to win. I don't care how you win. That's from a fighter's perspective. You've got to get in there and win the fight.

Yeah, I put on an exciting show in my last one, but I didn't get the number one contender's spot. I don't get a title fight. I don't get the things that come along with that, the bigger paydays and that sort of thing. Exciting or not exciting, you've got to win fights. I like to put on a show and do it in exciting fashion, but I can't knock Georges for his style at all.

SD: You say that you like to put on exciting fights, and lots of other athletes have voiced the same sentiment, but is there really a conscious effort or part of your gameplan to do that, or does it come down to whether a person's instincts tell them to go for broke or to play it safe?

CC: I think for me, personally, it's just part of my makeup. I think a big part of the reason why my fights tend to be so exciting is because I'm not the most ... well, you know a lot of the guys I fight are honestly better than I am. I just want it more. I have heart, and I have a chin and I love to fight. I think that formula, or combination of things just makes for exciting fights.

Condit is everything I love about this sport.

Humble, respectful, but a killer when the door shuts.

Signed, signed again and then signed another time. And then one more time. And one last time.

Condit has the best attitude reguarding the fight game, gotta love that stuff.

I agree, he sounds like a great guy outside of the cage and a true warrior inside the cage

I love the humility, but tbh I think Carlos is selling himself short.  He's one of the very best technical strikers in the WW division, maybe even the best.

Maybe wished Diaz could deal with a leg kick so it would have been more back and forth? Condit won in case you forgot. Phone Post

I've never disliked Condit, but after his two recent fights with GSP and Hendricks, he's become one of my favorites. He's the epitome of a fighter with heart and determination. Also, it's great to see how humble he is, especially since he's an animal when he fights. Seems like a genuinely cool guy.

Billytk - I honestly thought Condit won the Hendricks fight but no matter how he fights I just don't see Carlos Ever beating GSP it just won't happen
He came pretty close the first time. Can't count Condit out against anyone if you give him 5 rounds. Phone Post

Wake me up when he finishes someone in the top 5, while they are actually rated in the top 5.
