Carlos Condit On Conor & Nate’s Bottle/Can Throwing Incident: “It Was Childish”

Carlos Condit On Conor & Nate's Bottle/Can Throwing Incident

Recently, Welterweight contender Carlos Condit had a few things to say on fellow 170-pound’ers Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz’s bottle/can throwing episode at the UFC 202 Press Conference…

“Honestly man, it wasn’t a good look. I thought it was childish. I think a fist fight would’ve been better than throwing a bunch of water bottles at each other. I think that would be a bit more classy in my opinion… I think that for years we’ve been trying to change public perception of the sport, and I don’t think this incident did much to help that.”

“Both Nick and Nate definitely like to try and get in your head, try and get you to fight emotionally. When you see guys that kind of disconnect and don’t play into that game, they do very well against them. But when you get guys like- for instance, when Donald Cerrone fought Nate he was all riled up. He was pissed. Nate had him going and he went out there and fought like shit. I think there’s something to be said for that. Conor’s a proud guy and he’s not disconnecting like I said. I don’t think that’s a smart way to go into this fight against Nate.”

“Who knows how much is real and how much is just for show? If I was in his camp, I’d tell him to just let them do their thing. But on the other side of it, he’s great at getting into other people’s heads. It’s two guys that kind of play that game so I doubt that he’s going to step back his rhetoric or his antics because that’s who he is.”

“I don’t blame Woodley. I myself waited for Georges St-Pierre to come back to take that fight rather than take another fight, for a similar reason. We have a short self life in this sport. It goes by quick and we’ve got to get what we can get so I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing for these guys to be looking for money fights.”

“A win over Maia puts me right back in title contention, especially with the performance that I know I’m going to put on against Maia, gets me a title shot. I think that I have one last run in me before I’m ready to ride off into the sunset.”
