Video UFC 137's Carlos Condit: I've Never Been So Motivated

Former WEC champion Carlos Condit gets his shot at UFC gold against welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 137 on October 29 in Las Vegas. The UFC's newest promo video features Condit talking about his fighting style and his attitude going into the biggest fight of his life.

Condit, of course, is a consolation prize for fans. He only got the title shot after the UFC was forced to pull ex-Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz out of the fight due to Diaz' failure to appear at multiple press events to promote the card. 

Ultimately, Diaz got demoted to fighting B.J. Penn in the co-main event and Condit got the opportunity of a lifetime. Condit (27-5, 4-1 UFC) came to the UFC in early 2009 after a 5-0 run in the WEC. He got off to a rocky start with a pair of split decisions (losing to Martin Kampmann and getting the nod over Jake Ellenberger) but he's reeled off three straight KO/TKO victories over Rory MacDonald, Dan Hardy and Dong Hyun Kim.
