by George Martinez
New Mexico MMA had the pleasure of interviewing New Mexico's own Carlos Condit.
Carlos is the WEC Welterweight Champion. He is defending his belt for the first time on
August 5, 2007 on the Versus channel. Carlos took time out of his training session to
answer some questions for us.
Hey Carlos, How is everything going?
Every thing's going good man. I have been training like a mad man.
Yeah, You look good. Your kicks look very strong.
Yeah. That's never been a problem. Unlike my Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu.
How's training going?
Training is going well man. It's tough. I have been feeling pretty worn out lately, but that's
how your suppose to feel after training like this.
No, I had the shoulder thing, but now my shoulder is 100 percent. I am just ready to get in
there and defend the Title.
That's Great. I am glad that you have that Title here in New Mexico.
Did you get to see the belt up there? It's in the pro shop.
No I haven't got to see it yet. I will have to check it out.
So what do you know about your opponent?
Brock is an excellent competitor. He has solid wrestling skills, really good submissions,
really good Jiu Jitsu, and he is strong as an Ox. He's Coming, He's a legit contender. I am
going to have my hands full, but I'm gonna handle him.
Yeah, I think you will. Well thanks Carlos. I am going to let you get back to work.
OK, Take care and I will come back after you defend your Title, So we could sit down for a
OK cool, Come back anytime you want. I am always down here. This is where you can find
Cool, Thanks a lot.
New Mexico MMA would like to thank Carlos, as well as everyone at FIT/NHB for a great
day. I had a blast talking with all of you guys. Keep up the hard training and hopefully next
time I stop by I will be in shape to roll with you guys. Take care and I will see you all very
soon. Keep checking back for other interviews with FIT/NHB fighters that I talked to that
day. Thanks for inviting me to your house.
