UFC 137: Carlos Condit's Management Comment On GSP Title Shot Opportunity

First Round Management, Carlos Condit's management company, issued a press release following the news their fighter would be facing UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre as Nick Diaz has been removed from the fight.

"The timing was perfect for this to all come together," Condit stated via press release. "First I want to thank the UFC for allowing me this opportunity and also my agent Malki Kawa who saw an opening and took advantage of it. With me already fighting on that card, I will need to make some adjustments to get ready for a new opponent, but my actual training is still right on schedule."

"It's an honor to be able to fight for the championship, especially against one of the legends of our sport in Georges St-Pierre," said Condit. "I've been fighting for nearly a decade and there has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears that has gone into that. A lot of sacrifices have been made both personally and professionally, and I'm looking forward to showing the UFC that I am deserving of this opportunity."

"Carlos Condit deserves this title shot. It is something he has worked hard for his entire career. The stars were aligned for this to happen for him, and I know he's going to bring a lot of excitement to this fight," said Malki Kawa, Condit's manager.
