Carlos Condit: “I’m the best welterweight in the world”


“I’ve always been a big fan of Georges, I’ve admired his style and kinda of the way he carries himself and I’m honored to get in their and challenge him for the belt and step in the cage with him. With all that aside I think that I’m the best welterweight in the world and I’ve been trying to prove that every single time I get in their and this fight is going to be no different. It’s a great opportunity for me, but I think whether Nick did what he did or he didn’t, I still think I deserve the title shot. I didn’t get it by default or anything like that. With that being said it’s unfortunate for him. At this stage of the game it’s not just fighting. It’s selling the fights, you got to show up and do the P.R. It’s not always fun but it’s part of it. So it is unfortunate for Nick, he kind of blew his opportunity and I think he would have been a tough challenge for Georges. But you got to do the footwork and sell the fight.”

In an interview with Buddhasports.com the UFC’s upcoming welterweight title challenger, Carlos Condit speaks on his upcoming fight with GSP.

Best welterweight in the world? According to Condit that accolade goes to him, anyone care to disagree?
