“Carlos Condit is in his way and Carlos Condit is telling people he is going to knock Nick out. [Nick] realizes this guy is not on our team, this guy is on a team that I personally do not like. It’s like fighting an enemy. He doesn’t have to work himself up he’s there… [Carlos is] definitely a tactician but he’s in a whole other league now.
As pressure starts to mount, as thing goes off on [Nick] where he’s been the underdog all his life. Where people wanted to bully him his whole life, they want to portray him as something he is not, they want to write a script for his life and that’s not the script he wants and he is fighting against that.
As fight time approaches all of that starts to emerge. It’s a focused rage, it’s not just chaotic anger, there’s a focused rage there. He just realizes this guy is in his way and he must be eliminated.”
