UFC NEWS – Carlos Condit Reacts To GSP Injury, Fighting Diaz For The Interim Title

“Another change of opponents. It’s been kind of a crazy ride the last couple months but you know, just gotta kinda roll with it. The good thing is that I’ve been training and focusing on what I need to be doing to win a fight no matter who they put in front of me. I’m really excited. I’ve been wanting to step into the octagon with Nick Diaz for a really long time. Great fighter. Great skill set. I think that we’re really going to put on a good show for the fans. I’m sure everybody’s excited. Like I said, I’m stoked. I will be the UFC interim champion. And then when Georges gets better I will be the undisputed UFC champion.”

      Hahaha you must be smoking the devils lettuce

      WTF are you kidding GSP is not god he can and has been beaten(Matt Serra when he tapped from strikes as BJ Penn said if your a fighter and you tap from strikes your a little bitch he could have given his back up anything but he just quit which shows he can be broken mentally) give Condit some credit WEC welterweight champion really if you were to be honest he should have got a shot a the title in his first UFC fight simply because he was the WEC champ and the companys merged, and he has proven time & time again he can win, i never thought this guy would beat Dan hardy or any of the guys he has beaton lately he truly is a fighter where gsp is a great all-rounder/athlete big difference and Koscheck and you kidding bro he has a great skill set very athletic and a great wrestler i’ll give you that but he is not in the top 5 in the division let alone beat Condit easily as you seem to suggest i bet you think anderson silva is the greatest too but ask yourself who has he beaten in his 7 title defences or whatever it is whos he beaten the only defences really that were top flight fighters were Henderson, Sonnen, Maia & Belfort the rest of the guys were not really in that calibar no ones fault its just that when silva first came to the middleweight division there were not many GREAT middleweights i mean he fought Lutter and Leben and there both great fighters but when you compare the middleweight division to some other divisions it doesnt have the depth that say the welterweight or the light heavyweight does so im not discrediting Silva as the champ im simply saying he hasnt been in many fights where he has had to really war because he was so much better than everyone else for ages now the middleweight division has heaps more depth he wont hold the belt for much longer and to make Chael Sonnen fight Mark Munoz to see who fights anderson is bullshit I cannot see how anyone can justify Mark Munoz getting a title shot he has won 3 in a row but will be an interesting fight Munoz used to beat Sonnen up in high school wrestling there both from Oregan but its a different fight now my moneys on Sonnen I dont think munoz could beat Stann and Sonnen destroyed him so i dont give him much chance I dont like Sonnens mouth he runs it too much but ask yourself if you were Anderson Silva and someone was talking all the shit that Sonnen is wouldnt you wanna fight him piss him off cause if Silva beats Sonnen again he wont get another title shot for a long long time so why would he not want to take the most hyped fight in UFC history debatably and destroy this smart mouthed prick, personally i think he scared of losing he’s had it so good for so long as here comes this loud mouthed guy who picks him out and Silva doesnt like it the only explanation is he is worried and he should be Sonnen is an Olympic alternate this guy trains the house down Silva has been living the good life to long Chael Sonnen is the best thing to happen to the UFC middleweight division ever he’s very annoying and very entertaining and he can back it up and thats why i think people dont like him cause hes a smartarse and he can back up what he says so i dont get it u would think Silva would take the fight submitt the guy again laugh at him and Sonnen is GONE simple as that dana will not give someone another title shot at the same guy if they have lost twice in a title shot why do you think Ken-Flo has changed divisions 3 times and had 3 different shots at titles do u think if he stayed in the one division he would have got 3 title shots against the same guy and lose every one no way wouldnt happen so there has to be more to this story that what we are being led to believe there has to be a reason why Silvas avoiding fightin Sonnen he say he wants Bisping or Munoz ,Sonnen will beat both those guys clearly its so obvious Silva & Sonnen and leauges above everyone else in that division this fight should have happened 2 months ago more, so annoying neither of these guys are my favourite fighters but for fucks sake FIGHT ALREADY!!!!!! so we can move on to the next fight its like the Maynard vs Edgar fights by the 3rd fight it was like thank god he knocked him out so its over i dont think those 2 will fight again for a long long time it would be the same if Silva submits Sonnen again so why not fight him, from a frusrated UFC fan

  5. iamsoawesome says:

    “DON’T BE SCARED HOMIE(GSP)”!!!!!!!!! but that fucking blows!!!!! so many of us were so fucking hyped for GSP vs Diaz! WTF!!!!!!!

  6. Jb says:

    Kos sucks apparently you don’t follow mma. Carlos or Diaz would kill kos

    • Fortyb4five says:

      Apparently you’re a dumbass :/

      • Karl Rivera says:

        He’s a “dumbass” ’cause he doesn’t share your opinion? What’re you 12?! Listen, Kos is a good fighter but Condit’s too fast, too sharp and too well-condition than him! Condit will kill Koscheck in the octagon.

        • bertram says:

          what you fail to mention though is koscheck’s abilities. being that he’s easily the 2nd best wrestler in the division behind georges, and he has the power to knockout anybody if he connects. a wrestler easily has an advantage over any opponent he faces. which is exactly why georges is who he is. if kos threw caution to the wind and threw down with diaz blow-for-blow then yes maybe he wouldnt last, but the difference is that if he was losing on the feet, he could sit on him for 25 minutes and keep out of a submission and grind a decision. and he could do the same againstg condit if he chose to. jon fitch’s style works for a reason, as does gsp’s, and if koscheck chose to employ the same style during a fight, he’d beat both of them hands down

        • Zoeldog27 says:

          And your basing that on what mate? your opinion you can tell from what you just said that you obviously have no idea about all the differet aspects that makes up MMA Koscheck is not the the 2nd best wrestler in the division there are 5 or 6 guys that are clearly better than him in that area, sounds like youve been pulling your dick over koscheck too much buddy you need to be more open minded there are guys in other orginizations that would beat Koscheck, George Sotoropolous would beat Koscheck and hes a lightweight and how can you say if Koscheck chose to employ gsp or fintchs style he would beat them both is crap thats like me saying if i played a guitar like slash id be a millionaire rockstar or if i drove a car like dale earnhart jr id be a nascar ledgend or if i swam like michael phelps id be an olympic gold medalist wake up idiot come back to reality stop playing ufc on the xbox thinking your gsp lol your assuming you know when you dont your not Koscheck buddy so you cant say that you cant speak for him and you can what if all day the truth is a fighter is as only as good as his last 2 fights and thats all that matters the rest is erelavant! Go train some mma and you’ll understand the sport better!

        • phace says:

          No, I think he said that because the statement didn’t make any sense. I wouldn’t condone the namecalling thing, but the statement almost sounded sarcastic. Kos is a fighter with credibility. Just because GSP closed his eye doesn’t make him any less credible. Stylistically he’s a tough matchup for both Condit and Diaz. He can neutralize both of them with his wrestling abilities AND he has knockout power. Hopefully he gets to fight those guys one day.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Just that simple, huh? Why, because Diaz has no problems with elite wrestlers who also have KO power? Or is it because Condit’s decent ground game woul render Kos’ wrestling useless, leaving him open for the submission? Kos can bang with Condit, and his wrestling is more than a match for Diaz’ brilliant BJJ game, and he far from sucks. Not saying it’s an auto win against either, but neither would simply “kill” Kos

  7. The Beast says:

    im not that big a koscheck fan but to say the guy sucks is just plain dumb he will be back with a title shot in no time great wrestler and pretty good striker

  8. David Brown says:

    What a warrior willing to get into the cage with anyone, never says anything negative about his opponents….The Martial Way!!! He may get defeated in battle but I don’t think anyone will put a whoopin on this warrior :-)

  9. Jb says:

    Wow dumbass? Great line you fuckin retard. He does suck and will never hold the belt and if you ever think he would once again like most on this forum don’t know mma. All you know is UFC bandwagon fan like most on here. Now say something really clever and tough over the net. Retards

  10. iamsoawesome says:

    Kos is a alright fighter. He would lose to the top WW though like Condit, Shields, Diaz, and even his own training partner Tree humping Fitch. Kos’s biggest win was probably Daley and that’s pretty weak if u ask me. so he’s a class B fighter.

  11. JB Spencer says:

    If kos wants the winner of this fight, he should have to fight someone like ellenburger or mcdonald to repace condit on that card. Yeah, rory mcdonald v josh koshchec for no 1 contender spot, that would be perfect. Mcdonald would smash him, it would be a good fight though.

  12. Jake says:

    This is a Great match up for them both. I have Carlos winning it but I know it’s anyone’s fight for sure. NOW Gsp is a whole other story. Good luck with that one guys. I know condit will fight him fair but you know
    Diaz is just make that knee the center point of his offense. I’m not saying he don’t posess the tools to win the fight but lets just admit it, he’s just that kind of fighter but who knows

  13. JB Spencer says:

    And o yeah, W T F !!
    If ther was ever a ppv i would wana see if i could only see one a year, it was this one, gsp v diaz and condit v kos, that had me tingly all over in anticipation. Dont get me wrong, diaz v condit will be a bad ass fight and makes a whole lota sense too even without the circumstance that made it happen. But for me itl be just like penn v diaz where i dont want either one too lose.

    Mite be a good thing though, cuz while unlikely, if i had too watch both diaz and condit lose in one nite i would have probably sunk into a deep depresion.

  14. Digs says:

    Really Good matchup. Striking. Jiu Jitsu. Reach. Cardo. Pretty even all around.

    Worse thing that could happen, one of em pulls up lame with an injury.

  15. Vincent says:

    Learn how to spell David brown.

  16. Chartmonster says:

    This is the right matchup for the contendership..I got Carlos Condit!

  17. SmoothAssNigga says:

    Once again fortyguysb4girls spamming the comment section with blind bullshit STFU. One post a article is enuff u bum, move on. I doubt Kos would of put a beating on em, but u can keep riding dick as expected.

    I love this fight, pretty even. Im a big Carlos fan so Im goin with my dude. I think he well rounded enuff to win but wouldnt be surprise if Nick takes it he is just that good.

  18. mitchell says:

    awesome video!

  19. GRT 3000 says:

    Condit takes Diaz by flying knee!

    • mmaislandjunkie says:

      ur thinking of gsp vs his imaginary opponent who has twice now defeated him by that move.

      • mmaislandjunkie says:

        i thought i read flying kneebar lol

        • GRT 3000 says:

          nah it’s just knee. Diaz is going to take a knee in the face from Condit while he’s airborne. Then yer’ fav. GSP is going to defeat Condit via GnP.

          …so why all the hate on GSP from you? His last few fights have been a little boring 4 sure, but you talk like he dropped your shorts in public or something.

  20. Curtis says:

    LOL i love all the nick diaz groupies …. nick is an amazing SCRAPPER!!! and thats it. He isnt gonna beat ANY WW in the ufc in the top 10. AND THATS THE BOTTOM LINE…..CAUSE STONE COLD SAID SO!!! BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH!

    • mmaislandjunkie says:

      bj was a top 5 ww in the ufc before losing to nick. bj almost beat the no 2 ww and if it wasnt for horrible judging he would have got the w over fitch. then nick diaz beats bj. get ur facts straight u gsp shitstain loving fool.

  21. Jeff says:

    I like both Condit and Diaz. Carlos seems like a respectable dude who brings it. Diaz brings it too. But with the performance he had against BJ I think he might light up Carlos. I know I know MMA mathematics don’t work that way and BJ was landing at will in the 1st round. Diaz can take a punch better than most mma fighters. It will be a great fight. Let’s hope for injury free training from here on out.

  22. Mike Diaz says:

    The divisions are getting run by fighters who got more heart and hunger to compete at the highest level. It’s leave it all behind to reign on top of your division or not. Condit is a legit fighter but in this case Diaz is going to show this lil boy how far behind he is to step into a title fight. Diaz by KO or Submission…..TEAM PENN!!!!!!

  23. slacker says:

    I see this one going to a decision. Both guys have real good stand-up and great chins. Both have great ground games. Condit has one-punch KO power, which Nick doesn’t, so you never know. Either way, I’ll take Condit too come out on top.
