“I was at a point before my injury where I went to train because I had to, not because I wanted to. I lost motivation. I learned in my career that sometimes you need to break something to fix it before it breaks by itself. I don’t need to lose a fight to improve my training. I need to stay on top of the game before the fight game catches up on me. The long layoff allowed me to think about stuff. I needed to make my training more efficient for myself… In my contract, I was supposed to defend my title every year and I didn’t do it. For me, I see Carlos Condit as the champion and I’m getting a title shot.”
Yesterday the UFC held the UFC 154 pre-event press conference to kickoff the promotion of the GSP vs. Condit pay-per-view.
While fielding questions from the media, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre spoke on his place in the division and feeling like he doesn’t deserve to call himself the champ.
