Carlos Condit has already gone up against Georges St-Pierre who is arguably one of the greatest champions to fight in the Octagon. Despite losing a unanimous decision in a title unification bout with St-Pierre at UFC 154, Condit said in an open workout ahead of UFC 195 that the current welterweight champion Robbie Lawler is an even more dangerous opponent.
“Georges, he wasn’t as dangerous but he did have his aura about him,” Condit said at Wednesday’s UFC 195 open workouts, which took place on the MGM Grand casino floor (transcibed by MMA Fighting). “He had this mystique. Robbie not so much, but he’s the more dangerous fighter.”
With Lawler already putting on a fight for the ages against Rory MacDonald in 2015, Condit sees them setting the bar extremely high for the new year.
“They’re going to lock us in the cage and me and Robbie Lawler are going to try to f—— kill each other,” Condit said. “I think we’re two of the most skilled guys in the division, for sure. If not the sport. I think we’re going to go in there and put on a display of violence and aggression that people won’t soon forget.”
