Rory MacDonald has clearly chalked out his strategies for his upcoming mission at UFC 158, the pay per view event of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and that is not just a victory against Carlos Condit, but also to physically as well as mentally harm him. Condit is a direct contender as well as former number one contender for the UFC Welterweight Championship, having lost to Georges St. Pierre in a title match at UFC 154 in November. Fans of Mixed Martial Arts have been noticing a kind of psychotic tendency in his motivations as well as demeanor.
And in an interview with BJPenn.com, those tendencies became quite clear when he stated that he wants to do exactly the same thing to Condit as he had done to him. He added that he wants to make him feels embarrassed in front of his friends and family, the same way he was made to feel embarrassed; he made it clear that he would love to hurt Carlos Condit the same way he has hurt him and he hopes to exact revenge on him making him suffer so that he remembers the fifteen minutes they spend inside the Octagon for the rest of his life.
MacDonald, it seems, is honing his skills in terms of his pre fight trash talking and the way he has been speaking, using such psychotic tendencies, it could make even the best flinch. But Condit is someone who is almost as unflappable as anyone and there are doubts whether these words from MacDonald would affect him in any way.
Carlos Condit is one of the biggest draws in the Welterweight division of the UFC after the champion Georges St. Pierre and the match against MacDonald would almost certainly decide who faces the champion for the UFC Welterweight Championship.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Welterweight Championship contender Carlos Condit is an extremely humble and down to earth person and he accepted his UFC 154 defeat at the hands of the reigning champion Georges St. Pierre with immense dignity and a sense of reality. But he knows that he is just one win away from getting himself back into the picture for the title and with a match against Rory MacDonald in the offing, he is getting ready to stake his claim on the UFC Welterweight Championship once again.
Speaking to ESPN, Condit stated that the fact that he has just come off a loss doesn’t change anything; he was involved in the biggest match of his career and that has him fired up quite a lot. He went on to add that he is looking to come back even stronger, and will be vying for revenge against the champion. Carlos Condit went on to add that he wasn’t surprised that MacDonald called him out for a rematch after he had given the youngster the worst beating of his life, further mentioning that he was happy to have been able to beat the snot out of the arrogant Canadian.
During the encounter at UFC 115, Condit came back after being completely dominated in the first round to register a victory by knock out in the third round – a fight that garnered such wide spread acclaim that it earned the two fighters the Fight of the Night honors.
Carlos Condit added that a lot of people are talking about Rory, and he has a lot of hype surrounding him. And he knows having defeated him already, another win over him would put him right back into the mix for a shot at Georges St. Pierre and his UFC Welterweight Championship.

The reigning interim Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Welterweight champion Carlos Condit has admitted that he is enjoying being seen as a villain as he gears up for his UFC Welterweight Championship fight against the champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154 on the 17th of November and adds that he has lived this moment many times in the past. When he steps inside the UFC Octagon at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada to take on the home town favorite, he knows he will have a huge fight on his hands as he not only faces Rush inside the ring, a legend of the sport, but also thousands of fans cheering for him outside the ring.
When one knows Carlos Condit personally, there is not much to hate about him – he is a loving husband, a doting father who has been chasing his dream of becoming a legend of Mixed Martial Arts ever since he was legally old to drive a car but for the fans of GSP, just the fact that he will be vying to take away the UFC Welterweight Championship from their home town hero, a title that he has held since 2008 would be enough to jeer for the native from New Mexico.
Condit is the public enemy number one in Canada this week and that is a role he has embraced as well as thrived in several times before. He stated that one of the best memories he has had of his career is how he silenced the crowd at the O2 Arena in London when he beat Dan Hardy.
But even Carlos Condit knows that he won’t have it easy against Georges St. Pierre and he will have to give his best to stand a chance and he is ready for that.
