Carlos Condit Dan Hardy UFC 120

Carlos Condit vs. Dan Hardy

As a Top 10 170-pound fighter and former WEC champion, Carlos Condit is getting closer and closer to a shot at the UFC welterweight championship.

Currently riding a three-fight win streak, Condit is coming off a knockout win of former top contender Dan Hardy and is currently prepping for a fight against Chris Lytle at UFC 127 in Australia in February.

Current welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has run roughshod over the division and while his next fight is already set against Jake Shields in 2011, Condit is ready to throw his hat in as a contender.

“I think I’m coming to that point. I feel like I’m ready,” Condit said on Wednesday.

He has faced some of the best in the world already, and with a win over Lytle he would have dealt with one of the toughest competitors in all of MMA. Not looking too far ahead, Condit is confident that with the right streak a title shot can’t elude him much longer.

“I’ve got to put the wins together to get my place, and I think in one or two wins I should be there,” Condit stated.

While Condit and St-Pierre are both under the tutelage of Greg Jackson, the New Mexico based fighter has stated in the past that he would face GSP in the Octagon for a title shot. He also understands just how dangerous St-Pierre can be as an opponent, but that wouldn’t stop him from stepping up to the challenge and facing him for the belt.

“I think no matter who I step in against there’s always doubt, there’s always the opportunity for them to knock you out cold and embarrass you, but you’ve just got to put that aside and put your best foot forward and go out there and fight your best fight no matter who it is,” said Condit about facing GSP.

The “Natural Born Killer” has stepped up his game since working with Greg Jackson and striking coach Mike Winkeljohn in New Mexico, and with a win over Lytle, he may be poised for another big fight and possibly a shot at the UFC welterweight belt.
