Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s interim Welterweight title holder Carlos Condit is very aware of the fact that his opponent at UFC 171, Tyron Woodley will not be an easy nut to crack.
The two are set to go head to head against each other next month on the undercard of the Robbie Lawler versus Johnny Hendricks bout for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship. Many feel that it would have been fair had the UFC put Condit up against Hendricks for the vacant title in a rematch of their epic battle last year but they overlooked him in favor of Lawler.
But with all that is set to go down in Dallas next month, Carlos Condit knows he will have to take care of the job on hand at first before he can look beyond and a future shot at the UFC Welterweight Championship.
After he defeated Nick Diaz to win the interim UFC Welterweight Championship, Condit lost the unification match for the lineal belt to Georges St. Pierre in 2012 before another defeat at the hands of the hard hitting Hendricks the following year via a close decision result.
And he stated that it is obvious that the first thing on his agenda is to get past Woodley, who he knows will be a tough fight. But he admitted that it is ultimate goal to get another shot at the title again and he will do anything to get the UFC Welterweight Championship belt around his waist once again.
Carlos Condit knows that the opportunities that one gets are always short lived and he knows Tyron Woodley is standing between him and another shot at the championship belt as well as the big money fights and the huge pay per view draws that come along with it.
