As far as Carlos Condit is concerned, his next fight inside the Octagon will be against Georges St-Pierre for the unified UFC welterweight championship.
GSP is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL, but has targeted a return date of November for the match with Condit. “The Natural Born Killer” informed Bleacher Reporta during a recent interview that he hasn’t heard anything different from the UFC.
The bottom line is that the UFC has not offered me another fight. I haven’t been contacted, not has my management been contacted about fighting anybody else other than Georges St-Pierre. So, Georges is the guy I want. And if the UFC wants that fight, I’m content to wait for him to be ready.
The planned meeting is UFC 154 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The idea is to have Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks in the co-main event for the No. 1 contender spot, which would also provide an opponent if Condit or GSP were to be forced out before the date arrives.
