Carlos Condit will look to "end" Georges St. Pierre at UFC 137Posted on September 9, 2011, 10:47 AM by Joey Santosus
"Different guys have different approaches to fighting. Georges (St. Pierre) steps in there with a very calculated gameplan – not taking a whole lot of risks, and he feels like he's safe in that approach. My approach to fighting is a little bit different. I don't feel that I'm safe in the cage until my opponent isn't moving anymore – until the ref waves his hands and says, 'Fight's over.' That's when I'm safe in the cage. My goal is to end my opponent...He's a man. He's a human. He's not invincible. He's not this machine that is untouchable. Other guys have proved that there are some weaknesses there. I've got to train hard and figure out how I can exploit that." - For more from Carlos Condit, visit MMAJunkie.com
With four consecutive decision victories over the course of his last four title defense, Welterweight Champion Georges St. is widely criticized for what many perceive as a safety first fighting style. And while Carlos Condit doesn't necessarily disagree with this opinion of the champ, "The Natural Born Killer" says he has his own safe approach inside the octagon - separating his opponents from consciousness.
Tabbed as a late replacement for former Strikeforce Champion Nick Diaz, Condit will head into his title clash against St. Pierre with 26 finishes in 27 victories. Perhaps an even more impressive statistic, however, is the fact that 13 of those have come by way of (T)KO, while the other 13 were via submission, making the Jackson's MMA product as versatile as he is dangerous. So what do you think LowKick'ers? Can the "Killer" known as Condit "end" GSP or is St. Pierre just getting started?
