Carlos Condit On How He Will Defeat Georges St-Pierre At UFC 154

Carlos Condit took part in the post-fight show for UFC on Fuel TV 6 Saturday, just days ahead of his scheduled encounter with Georges St-Pierre.

Condit and St-Pierre will collide Saturday at UFC 154 to unify the UFC welterweight crowns. Condit earned the interim title earlier this year when he defeated Nick Diaz.

“The Natural Born Killer” was posed a question he has been asked countless times in press conferences and interviews: how are you going to defeat GSP?

I am really going to have to draw on my toughness and those things and assets that I think are overlooked.

Condit mentioned that he has been focusing on wrestling during his extended training camp, adding, “(GSP) has taken down a lot better wrestlers than me. What separates my ground game from other guys in the past is I incorporate a lot of striking.”

The 28-year-old former WEC champion has reeled off five consecutive victories since a split decision defeat at the hands of Martin Kampmann back in 2009. Three of those wins came via finish, as he stopped Dong Hyun Kim, Dan Hardy and Rory MacDonald.
