Carlos Condit Embracing His Inner Bad Guy For GSP Bout

Carlos Condit knows what it feels like to step inside the Octagon against a hometown fighter.

In November, Condit will square off with Georges St-Pierre in Montreal for the unified UFC welterweight title at UFC 154.

Back in 2010, “The Natural Born Killer” stepped into the O2 Arena in England and faced Brit Dan Hardy. Condit won that bout via knockout, and has since pushed his current win streak to five in a row.

“I kind of enjoy the role of the bad guy,” Condit said. “Coming into (an opponents) hometown, trying to defeat him.”

Condit also defeated Canadian Rory MacDonald in his backyard, topping him in Vancouver. Add to that wins over native fighters in Hawaii and Japan, all of which resulted in stoppage victories.
