Carlos Condit Mentally Strong Enough To Not Be Bothered Facing GSP At UFC 154 In Canada

Carlos Condit expects to hear plenty of booing when he walks to the Octagon next month to face Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154.

Along with being one of the most popular fighters in all of MMA, GSP will be returning to action for the first time in well over a year – and in his hometown of Montreal, no less.

Fighting in front of Georges St-Pierre’s hometown might throw a lot of guys off, but mentally, I’m going to be strong and be able to put that aside and do what I need to do. I’m on the preface of achieving my life goal.

Condit (28-5) earned the interim UFC welterweight title when he defeated Nick Diaz. “The Natural Born Killer” decided to remain on the sidelines until St-Pierre (22-2) healed up enough for a return to the Octagon. The winner will leave the Bell Centre with the unified UFC welterweight crown.

St-Pierre has not competed since defeating Jake Shields in 2011.
