ONE37pm: As you mentioned, you have fought in Hawaii, Tokyo, Abu Dhabi, Indianapolis, Vegas… which place was your favorite to fight in… and what place had the best post-fight meal?
Condit:“Oh man, it’s really hard to choose. Tokyo was one of my favorite places for a lot of different reasons. Who I was at the time, having not seen a whole lot of the world… Tokyo definitely holds a special place in my heart. For a post-fight meal, I gotta say in Montreal. We had amazing food there.”
ONE37pm: What is it with Canada and MMA? What is the connection? It just seems perfect. What is it?
Condit: “I don’t know if I could quite put my finger on it. But I know GSP being such an incredible athlete, talent, and champion had a big part.”
ONE37pm: In your time in the WEC, you go 5-0. You’re the champ. You’re a bad man, the Natural Born Killer. What was it during that time span that you were syncing on all levels? Was it the matchups? Was it the time in your life mentally? What do you think led to that iconic 5-0 run?
Condit: “I think a lot of things aligned. I had my formula right at the moment, at that time. That’s a moving target though. That changes as things change around you and as you change as a person. You have to adjust… but during that time I think I just had my formula dialed in.”
