Martin Kampmann: ‘Georges St. Pierre will quit if hurt, Carlos Condit will fight to the end’

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Can Carlos Condit make Georges St. Pierre quit at UFC 154? Martin Kampmann seems to think so, if "The Natural Born Killer" can land a good enough shot that is.

It's a bit of a surprise who Martin Kampmann is picking to win the main event title fight between Georges St. Pierre vs. Carlos Condit at UFC 154 later this month.

"The Hitman" recently told MMA Weekly he initially felt St. Pierre would be able to grind out a decision victory over "The Natural Born Killer" when the two meet on Nov. 17, 2012 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to unify the Welterweight titles. However, as the date draws nearer, Martin seems to have had a change of heart.


It's simple, the Dane believes should Condit land a good solid shot on the current 170-pound champion that hurts him, "Rush" will buckle and wave the white flag, throw in the towel or...well, you get the picture.

His words:

"I used to think GSP would probably get a victory by taking him down and grinding out a decision, but now that it's closer to the fight, I'm starting to lean towards Carlos picking up the upset. I'm not sure why, but I could see Carlos hitting GSP with some crazy knee or a spinning back fist or something crazy, and pull off the upset."

Having faced off against Condit before, handing him his first and only loss inside the Octagon back in 2009 via a razor-thin split decision, "The Hitman" knows just how tough it can be to finish the current UFC interim welterweight champion which is why he believes Condit will fight to the end while "GSP" will quit should he be hurt by "The Natural Born Killer":

"I could see GSP quitting if he gets hurt, if he gets hit with a good shot, but Condit he's going to keep going, he's going to be in the fight till the end. That's why I'm starting to lean more towards him."

Kampmann will have his own business to take care of that night as he takes on surging Johny Hendricks in the co-main event of the evening. The winner is expected to be the next contender for the title at welterweight, taking on the headlining bout's winner.

Anyone care to break down Kampmann's comments? Can Condit force the French-Canadian to say "no mas?"
