[UFC 154 VIDEO] Georges St. Pierre to Carlos Condit on His Repaired Knee: Come and Get It

Some of you may have heard of a lil’ MMA fight that’s set to take place next month between the UFC’s interim welterweight champion and some French joker named Georges St. Pierre. GSP has been out of action since successfully defending his belt against Jake Shields in April of 2011 due to multiple knee injuries. Finally, on November 17th, the longtime champ is scheduled to make his return at UFC 154 after undergoing ACL reconstruction surgery and taking the necessary months to recover. In case Carlos Condit is thinking about going after St. Pierre’s newly-recuperated knee, “Rush” has a simple message for his opponent.

“I hope that Condit focuses on targeting my knee. Its not a weak link anymore,” he says in the above UFC video.

“There’s nothing that I can’t do now that I wasn’t able to do. I will leave with the belt.”

St. Pierre goes on to give his usual spiel about his next opponent being the best one he’s ever faced — a practice he’s kept up ever since getting upset by Matt Serra in April 2007 — but he brings up some legit points about Condit. The odds may be against “The Natural Born Killer” when he fights GSP but, as the Canadian says, Condit truly is a versatile fighter capable of coming up with and executing different game plans depending on who he is fighting. (Sound familiar?) It should also be noted that Condit has legit KO power — he stopped Dan Hardy cold, for example, whereas GSP couldn’t finish the Brit over five rounds.

What do you think, nation? Is GSP bluffing or will his knee hold up to any kicking or other attacks that Condit may throw his way? And do you think it makes sense for a fighter to design their game plan around an opponent’s injury?

I like Condit but even coming off an injury GSP is on a whole other level.

Carlos, kick him in the knee. Jon Jones would do it.

I find it hilarious how everyone is counting out Condit. I think Condit is going to shock the world. Condit wants this fight more than anything. He's been waiting is whole life for this moment and I really believe he has the skills to become champion.

I'm predicting that gsp will win by again blowing his knee but this time blowing his knee all over condits face. Or maybe he's more like silva and will blow his knee all over his chest. Well given that he's French Canadian he might be into stuff I don't know about like blowing his knee all over condits feet. Either way its safe to say none of us want to see him blowing his knee all over condits midsection. That would be bad.

Dont let my name fool you, I'm GSP all the way in this one. He is just too physically and mentally strong right now. When you have a serious injury like the one GSP has it can either make or break you depending on what kind of mental state you go to; and GSP seems to be about as mentally strong as they come.

I think it doesn't matter what Condit does he is still gonna lose. There is no if's or but's about it, nobody is beating GSP until GSP gets to old and slows down. That time is not now.

I think Condit will pull the same shit he did against Diaz. I think GSP will continue to point fight and not look to finish and i think this fight will be 2 steps up from a fitch vs shield fight except this fight actually has the potential to be FAN-fucking-TASTIC!
