Carlos Condit Still Wants To Fight BJ Penn
“Nah, this title shot has been what I’ve wanted since I started fighting and I would still like to fight BJ. He’s a legend in the sport. I’ve looked up to him for a very long time and that would be a win that I would want on my record. For now, I’ve got to capitalize on this moment and go hard and see if I could get this belt.”
Carlos Condit tells MMANation.com that even though his focus is on his title fight with Georges St. Pierre, he still wants a fight with BJ Penn at some point. Up until a few days ago, Condit was scheduled to face Penn in the co-main event at UFC 137, but was bumped up to the main event spot when the UFC decided to pull Nick Diaz from the card. BJ is now set to face Diaz on the same card, but depending on how the dust settles this fall, a showdown with “The Prodigy” could definitely be in Condit’s future.
