See what he has to say…
- Carlos Condit recently spoke about his fight on Saturday with Tyron Woodley. Here are the highlights…
On His Past Fights With Diaz and GSP: "Those two fights were kind of unique. It wasn't so much the pressure, but I just felt a little bit flat as far as my motivation, which is kind of weird. I was just in a weird spot. In the past I always had this fire going into fights, just this absolute resolve to make it a bloodbath. In those fights, it just wasn't there for whatever reason."
On Lack of Energy Early in Fights: "I think it starts way further out," he said. "It starts in your camp, in how you're preparing and how you're training. You just try to gain momentum and let that intensity snowball until you get to the fight. I definitely think we're on the right track with that this time, but regardless of whether you feel like a million bucks or whether you feel flat, you've got to go out there and perform. The other guy is coming to kick your ass either way."
On Woodley Calling Him a Point Fighter: "But I don't care," Condit said, "because I get to get in there and finish him and make him into one of those guys that knows that's not what I am or who I am or how I fight."
On This Being a Big Fight: "I've been in a lot of big fights," Condit said. "I've felt the pressure. Going into this fight, I feel like it's another day at the office. I've been here before, I've done this, and as long as the preparation is there, I know I can physically go in there and do what I have to do. And I've done that, so I don't have a whole lot to worry about. I just have to remember to keep my hands up."
