In February, it was determined UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (Pictured) would ride the pine and attempt to unify the crown when 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre returned from injury.
However, now that Martin Kampmann has catapulted up the totem pole with his upset special over Jake Ellenberger, Condit might be willing to put his manufactured belt up for grabs in the name of redemption if GSP’s surgically-repaired knee isn’t healed by the Holidays.
“If it turns out Georges can’t fight in November, most likely, I will fight somebody else,” Condit told Inside MMA. “I really wanna fight Georges. I really wanna unify the belts, but there’s also some other guys that I would like to fight, as well.
“Martin Kampmann’s the only guy that I’ve lost to in the UFC, the only guy I’ve lost to in about the last six years, so I would definitely like to avenge that loss.”
Kampmann posted a controversial split decision victory over “The Natural Born Killer” in April 2009. It marks the only blemish on Condit’s résumé over his past 14 scraps.
However, this might be a moot discussion because St-Pierre released a video this week flaunting how well his knee is coming along. GSP is hoping to train at full capacity by next month and be back inside the Octagon in November.
