Carlos Condit considers Georges St. Pierre to be as good as it gets in MMA

UFC welterweight contender Carlos Condit may hold an overall record of 27-5 with 26 stoppages but even he admits current champion Georges St. Pierre poses a challenge unlike any he’s seen so far in his career.

St. Pierre, considered to be one of MMA’s pound-for-pound greats, is one of the few competitors who blend every aspect of the sport together seamlessly. A tremendous grappler with diverse stand-up and never-ending cardio, GSP hasn’t been beaten in more than four-and-a-half years while picking up wins over a number of highly-respected peers like B.J. Penn, Matt Hughes, Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck, and most recently Jake Shields.

Condit understands the significant task at hand, a point he drove home in a recent interview with the UFC relating to his October 29 headliner against the popular French-Canadian at UFC 137.

“Georges is very hard to gameplan against. He’s as dynamic and well-rounded as they come. He’s a very, very tough puzzle to solve,” Condit explained before making it clear he’s no slouch either. “I’m hard to fight. No matter what position we’re in I make you very uncomfortable. I try to not only beat you down physically but break you mentally.”

    This match doesn’t do anything for me. Condit is a well rounded guy and seems to bring it each fight but, I would be shocked to see anything besides another 5 round GSP UD snooze-fest. GSP says “this is my toughest challenge yet”. Condit says” I have the tools to beat GSP”

    After not being ale to do anything against GSP after the first round Condit will be like every other challenger and get over aggressive and desperate and GSP switches to auto pilot and cruises to another easy win.

    If it wasn’t for Penn/Diaz fight I would totally skip this PPV. Last several GSP fights I have found myself starting to fall asleep after first round.

    Not hating on GSP but, he just isn’t a very exciting fighter no matter how extremely talented he may be.

  • Then You’re a foOL Hatter….GSP has been battling one dimensional fighters for the past four and a half years….this time he’s got a REAL challenge on his hands. He’s not going to be able to cruise because Carlos wont quit like everyone else has. On his feet Carlos will be throwin crisp technical strikes from every angle, on the ground Carlos has the businesses best Kimura sweep and some of the nastiest arm bars ever……GSP might win, he’s GSP…but for the first time in four years he’s fighting someone that is better than him at some aspects of the game. IMO better than him at everything but wrestlings and overall pure athleticism.
    Georges better be ready to not cruise because if he does the best finisher in the business will put him away. I cant wait for this fight card.

    I’m still stoked to see this fight. Condit is as legitimate a threat as anyone else put in front of GSP in recent years; I don’t think he’ll win, but I think he deserves the chance to try.
