Carlos Condit open to Ellenberger fight, but prefers to wait for "Michael Jordan of MMA" GSPPosted on February 27, 2012, 02:12 PM by Joey Santosus
Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit, who defeated Nick Diaz at UFC 143 to lay claim to the belt, looks back on the match-up and discusses his fighting future. Condit admits that he's open to fighting Jake Ellenberger if the UFC insists, but says he prefers to wait for "the Michael Jordan of MMA" Georges St. Pierre.
"I would like to fight Georges St. Pierre. He is the Michael Jordan of MMA. An opportunity to fight Georges St. Pierre could come up once in a lifetime. Not only is he the UFC Welterweight Champion, but I've been waiting to fight him for months. I was supposed to fight him last October and that fell through, and I'm just itching to fight Georges. I am (okay with waiting). I'm at a great camp, I have pretty realistic sparring every day, so it's not like I'm gathering ring-rust."
