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.
