Carlos Condit Has Plans To ‘Beat The (Expletive) Out Of’ Johny Hendricks

Coming off his first loss in over three years, Carlos Condit wants nothing more than to step back inside the Octagon and hear his name called as the victor.

“The Natural Born Killer” will meet Johny Hendricks this Saturday night at UFC 158, and knows the importance of a win in such a key contest.

“Hendricks has called me out – I don’t mind being called out,” Condit said. “If somebody wants to fight you, that means you have something that they want. But (am I) worried? No. I’m gonna go in there and try to beat the (expletive) out of him.”

Originally, Condit was set to face Rory MacDonald in a rematch of a 2010 fight won by the former interim UFC welterweight champion. MacDonald was hurt, and Hendricks offered to step in.

“It’s a huge fight,” Condit stated. “It puts me right back in title contention with a win. It’s a risky fight, it’s dangerous; but the reward is definitely worth it.”

Condit’s posted a 28-6 career record, including wins over Nick Diaz, Jake Ellenberger, Dan Hardy and the aforementioned MacDonald. His style may not be the most entertaining to some people – looking at you Mr. Diaz – but he wins fights. This should be an interesting matchup between Condit and Hendricks.
