Carlos Condit believes he is one of the more entertaining fighters in all of MMA, regardless of the outcome of his last two fights. The former interim UFC welterweight champion has lost to Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks, but is still viewed as an elite fighter at 170 pounds.
“I put on an exciting show in my last (fight), but I didn’t get the No. 1 contender’s spot,” said Condit, during a recent interview with BloodyElbow.com. “I don’t get a title fight. I don’t get the things that come along with that: the bigger paydays and that sort of thing. Exciting or not exciting, you’ve got to win fights.”
Condit was able to continually get up after Hendricks used his wrestling to take him down countless times. The bout went much the same way as his title unification fight with St-Pierre in late 2012.
“I fought the fight against Hendricks that I wish I had fought against GSP, honestly,” Condit said. “With the stand-up and the striking and everything.”
Condit has yet to have another match scheduled since the loss to Hendricks, but mentioned a rematch with “Bigg Rigg” or another fight vs. Rory MacDonald as bouts of interest to him going forward.
