UFC 154 Primetime: St Pierre vs Condit – Episode 1
UFC 154 Primetime go inside the personal lives and training camps of welterweight champion Georges St Pierre and interim champion Carlos Condit in the weeks leading up to their title fight at UFC 154 scheduled on November 17, 2012, at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
“I said it in Brazil, and I’ll say it again: Hell yes, they will (fight)” Dana White said Tuesday during MetroPCS online chat.
But it will not be easy, because both of them have other plans (watch Anderson Silva UFC 153 post fight interview) and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones (17-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) said he wants to be a heavyweight as early as next year. Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) has always said that his desire is to fight welterweight champ Georges St Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC), who will make his most-anticipated return in the Octagon in less than 3 weeks (UFC 154: St Pierre vs Condit).
White, though, isn’t buying that argument: “I guarantee you that fight will absolutely happen. When people say that, it’s crazy because a lot of people believe that Jon Jones should be fighting at heavyweight anyway,” he said. “So to say that GSP vs Anderson Silva doesn’t make Read more »
UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit knows that to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man.
But if that “man” is named Georges St Pierre, everything becomes complicated.
On November 17 in Montreal at UFC 154 GSP will make his return after almost 20 months from his last match against Jake Shields at UFC 129.
On December 7, 2011, it was in fact revealed St-Pierre had sustained an ACL injury to his right knee, forcing him out of the bout with Nick Diaz. Diaz lost to Carlos Condit at UFC 143, in a fight for the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship. “He’s the best in the world. He’s one of the best the sport has ever seen,” Condit admitted.
But if GSP is “the man”, ‘The Natural Born Killer’ is Read more »
After his dominant UFC 153 victory over Stephan Bonnar at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro (= Silva vs Bonnar), Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva was once again in the middle of the “Jon Jones issue”.
Though the middleweight champion is still against the idea of facing the reigning light heavyweight champion, UFC president Dana White thinks he can change Silva’s mind, not only by words, but using money. A lot of money.
During Saturday night’s post-fight press conference Dana said: “I know he’s been saying ‘no’, but, for the amount of money that would be offered for that fight, I guarantee you I will make Anderson Silva say ‘yes.’” Silva, however, immediately Read more »
Less than 15 days to UFC 153 (October 13, 2012 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), but the questions at a press conference for promoting the bout are all for Silva’s future. In particular the alleged fear of the “Spider” to face Chris Weidman, who is coming off dominant back-to-back wins over top-10 opponents.
“Everything has its time. He’ll have his opportunity to fight for the belt. Maybe I fight next before he gets the shot, I lose and he fights someone else. We don’t know. I can fight Bonnar, lose and say: ‘you know what, I don’t want it anymore’. Or maybe I win and way ‘I don’t want Read more »
