Condit knows Woodley is a difficult opponent

March 11th, 2014 by admin

Many people still believe former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s interim Welterweight champion Carlos Condit should have been given a chance to take on Johnny Hendricks at UFC 171 in a rematch of their 2013 fight for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship belt.

Instead, the UFC offered Robbie Lawler the chance to take Hendricks on and Condit had to contend with a match against Tyron Woodley, on the same night as he prepares himself to prove his credentials once again against someone who is already being seen as the future of the division.

Speaking to a media outlet, Condit mentioned that Woodley is a great wrestler, adding that he has a brilliant background in amateur wrestling and he has transitioned well into becoming a Mixed Martial Artist.

Carlos Condit went on to add that Woodley has a lot of depth thanks to his skills in wrestling, but admitted that he is still very raw in the sport but he is still great at a few things and the things he does well are extremely dangerous too.

And Condit knows how important that match is for him, as he knows a win could directly place him in a UFC Welterweight Championship match against the winner of the Hendricks versus Lawler bout. That is his aim and he knows he has to take care of Woodley to achieve that.

And he admitted that the first thing is he has to take care of the job on hand at first and get past Woodley, which will be a difficult task in itself. Carlos Condit that a title shot is what he is gunning for and he is looking forward to getting on a run that will put him in a position to ask for a shot at the UFC Welterweight Championship again.

Nick Diaz turned down Carlos Condit fight

December 18th, 2013 by admin

With the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC booking Robbie Lawler and Johnny Hendricks to fight for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship, Dana White, the president of the UFC stated that he thought he had another high profile Welterweight match booked for UFC 171.

But that wasn’t meant to be as Nick Diaz turned the fight down.

White said that he had made Nick Diaz the offer of a fight against Carlos Condit last Saturday at UFC on FOX 9 but the veteran fighter passed on the offer. White also mentioned that the offer was made in person with Diaz present at cage side during the event.

And after passing up the opportunity to fight the Natural Born Killer, Diaz will continue to remain out of action, as per his own whims and wishes. He also told White that he might make a return in spring 2014 and if he does, it will be for a title fight.

White stated that he doesn’t want the match, adding that he thought he would like the rematch against the number one ranked Carlos Condit but the umber ten ranked Diaz just didn’t show enough interest. White also ventured to state that might be holding out for a return to action in May.

The UFC boss went on to explain that Diaz told him that he would want a fight against the winner of the Hendricks versus Lawler bout in a match for the title; but added that he had made it clear to him that he is ranked at number ten in the rankings and a title match is not given that way.

And this might just pave the way for Carlos Condit to get an immediate shot at the title once the winner is decided after the unfolding of UFC 171.
