Carlos Condit is set to headline the UFC on Fox Sports 1 (2) event in Indianapolis verus Martin Kampmann. The bout is an important one for both as the winner will stay relevant in the welterweight title picture and the loser will have some serious work in front of them, something Condit knows all too well:

"I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to avenge that loss. It was a really close fight. I had some opportunities in that fight to end it and I didn’t. That night Martin was a better man and he won the fight. What’s exciting about this matchup is he’s improved so much as a fighter since then as have I. We are both hungry.

“This is kind of a ‘do or die’ fight for both of us. I’m coming off two losses in a row. He’s coming off a loss. This is a crazy sport and a crazy business. You never know when you are going to get that pink slip. We are both highly motivated to go in there and get the win.

“He’s a hungry guy and a hard worker. I have a lot of respect for him—and I know everybody says that—but Martin Kampmann is a guy I genuinely respect. I really do. He’s worked his ass off to come to the states and follow his dream. He’s trying to achieve his goals and so am I. That makes for a dangerous combination and an exciting formula to make a great fight for the fans.”

I like Condit and his attitude. Easily one of the most likeable fighters out there.

I like Carlos and his attitude but his fight w/ Diaz pissed me off, but I wish him well.

This.

 

I'm still gun-shy from that Diaz fight so whenever he says "it's do or die" and coming off of two losses how bad he needs to "win" this fight.  I'm hesitant.  That being said, I'm definitely a fan and (almost) always enjoy a NBK fight.

Ummmm, he beat Diaz. Let it go......IMO i don't even think Nick's in the top 10. There are plenty of guys that would take him out.

If they gave Hardy about 5 shots at redemption then Condit should get ~10. Phone Post

Love Condit. Guy is a true professional. The only person to fight Gsp that I said if George has to lose then I'm ok with it being Condit. Phone Post 3.0

I don't think I've ever heard Condit make excuses for a loss. [Kampmann was the better man.] That's it.

So refreshing compared to the usual "I don't wanna make excuses but here's a list..." Phone Post 3.0

Not much of a Carlos fan (personally anyways) but I do enjoy watching him fight. I rarely root for the guy but enjoyed the Diaz fight. Thought he fought smart and I have an appreciation for that.
