Carlos Condit: I will most likely fight off my back against Georges St. PierrePosted on June 18, 2012, 11:33 AM by Anton Gurevich
Interim UFC Welterweight champion Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit is expected to face Georges St. Pierre later this year, looking to become the undisputed UFC 170lbs champ. St. Pierre is currently recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him for nearly a year, while Condit made his way to the top with victories over Dong Hyun-Kim and Nick Diaz.
NBK is 28-5 in his MMA career, 5-1 in the UFC. Condit was the last WEC Welterweight champion, and held a record of 5-0 in the now-defunct promotion. In fact, Condit's only loss in the past seven years is against Martin Kampmann via Split Decision, back at UFC Fight Night 18.
Condit also spoke about the ongoing "TRT-debate", claiming that any type of enhancers just muddies the water of Mixed Martial Arts as a sport. Condit declared he never used performance enhancing drugs, and got where he is today thanks to his natural athletic abilities (quote via MMA.tv):
“I think it’s a slippery slope, you know what I mean? You let guys start using testosterone and it’s – where does it end? You know what I mean? I wonder, especially for younger guys, I know Frank Mir’s a little bit older and of course your testosterone levels kind of dip as you get older, but some of these younger guys, you know, guys maybe in their late twenties and thirties using testosterone replacement therapy, I wonder, I wonder why is there testosterone low in the first place? And I, my theory is they may have been using something in the past, because when you use steroids, your body, after you get off has a hard time bringing yourself up to natural levels. I don’t know man. I’m not going to judge anybody, but that’s just, that’s not – I got to where I am without ever ever using any performance enhancing drugs."
