“I want to fight next week. It’s in my heart to fight, but logically, I need to be patient. No matter who the opponent was — right now, a fight against anyone other than Georges wouldn’t make sense. I have some small — I wouldn’t even call them injuries — that come from training day in and day out, so I guess I have time to heal now. But I would rather have just fought through it. I was ready to fight. The layoff isn’t huge, but, you know, it’s kind of a crappy situation all around.”
Carlos Condit tells ESPN.com basically, that now that he has booked the shot at GSP’s title, he would rather sit on the sidelines and wait for his opponents’ recovery than risking his place with another bout.
Originally scheduled to face BJ Penn on the same UFC 137 card, Condit opted to take a title shot against GSP when Dana White suddenly felt the need to remove Diaz from the main event for failed attempts at making press conferences.
Now that GSP has failed to stay healthy in the lead up to their bout, Condit is left holding the bag and is stuck without a fight.
