Condit Camp Responds | Carlos Won The Fight, We Are Not Interested In A Rematch

“At this point, [a rematch] is not something we’re looking to do. We’re looking for Georges. People forget, Carlos waited a long time to get this fight.

Cesar Gracie Unsure Of Diaz Retirement, Open To A Condit Rematch

[Retirement] is something I haven’t talked to him about. I would hate to see that.

Final Thoughts With Carlos Condit | "I'm gonna bury this mother f*cker"

“A lot of guys are over looking me; a lot of guys are underestimating me. I know that Georges [St-Pierre] wants to fight Nick Diaz really bad but I have other plans. I feel like people are counting me out and that’s a mistake, I’m coming to fight. I expect a war, Nicks a warrior...

No One Wants To Finish Fights More Than Me, Says GSP

“Everyone has a violent side. My job is to win, and in order to win most of the time I need to injure my opponent. It’s a violent sport but in real life I’m not a violent guy. I’m an athlete in a full contact sport so it requires violence to win. I’ve had a...
