A 'positive' Carlos Condit ready to get off the UFC 137 roller coaster

All Carlos Condit has ever wanted since signing with the UFC was the chance to fight for the welterweight title.

After stunning Dong Hyun Kim earlier this year, he finally got the chance to challenge Georges St. Pierre for the 170-pound strap at UFC 137 on Oct. 29 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And he had a little help from Nick Diaz.

But just under two weeks from the fight, "Rush" blew out his knee in training camp, postponing the contest until an undetermined point in 2012.

Condit's reaction:

"It's been a roller coaster to say the least. I'm trying not to get bummed out about the situation and trying to stay positive. It's just something that happens, it's the nature of the sport. I'm just trying to keep a positive outlook, it's the best I can do."

Hear more from "The Natural Born Killer" in his interview with FOX Sports after the jump.

Anyone think the layoff will help Condit get better? Or is he overmatched regardless of how long he trains?
