“I’m the real deal and Iâ€™m ready for Condit. I’m ready for it, so itâ€™s just a matter of getting (Condit) to agree, but (the WEC) definitely wants it to happen. Itâ€™s up to Conditâ€™s camp to figure out what it wants. Iâ€™d like to fight as often as possible, but the way itâ€™s looking, this is the fight I want to wait for. I donâ€™t want to risk anything like I did before fighting Condit the first time. I was supposed to fight him when I fought Kevin Knabjan two months before, and I think I peaked too early for that. Itâ€™s hard to peak twice in two months, so if it comes out that way, thatâ€™s the way Iâ€™m going to have to take it.
My confidence level is as high as it can be. Iâ€™ve always been really confident in my ground game, but now with my hands Iâ€™ve been doing a lot of sparring, and Iâ€™m confident everywhere now. I donâ€™t feel like I have a huge hole anywhere. Itâ€™s going to take a pretty tough dude to bury me. I think that right now Iâ€™m doing the best that Iâ€™ve ever done and Iâ€™m ready for it.
Keep watching and youâ€™re going to see more explosiveness from me and that belt around my waist.”
WEC welterweight Brock Larson (23-2-1), who defeated Carlo Prater via first-round TKO at WEC 35 on August 3rd, tells MMA Weekly that he has his sights set on again fighting WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit, who successfully defended his 170-pound title with a fourth-round TKO victory over Hiromitsu Miura in the WEC 35 main event. In their first meeting, Condit successfully defended his title for the first time with a first-round armbar submission victory over Larson at WEC 29 in August 2007.
