“It ebbs and flows day to day, week to week, month to month throughout my whole career,” said the former WEC and interim UFC champion at 170 pounds. “It’s been a rollercoaster. If this thing was easy to do, then everybody would do it. Do I love every aspect of it? No. But ultimately, I’m a martial artist, and deep down this is what I love to do. The pursuit of greatness through physical violence, it calls me for whatever reason.”

Few do it better. A pro since 2002, Condit has seemingly been around forever, but a look at the calendar still sees him at just 33 years old. But after 40 fights, life changes and so does motivation. With a pair of belts, seven post-fight performance awards and the status and respect that come along with being one of the best of his era, what pushes Condit to go through the training camp grind, cut weight and then get into a fistfight at the end of the cycle? Is the goal still a world title?

“I know it’s cliché, but I’m focusing on what I’ve got right now in front of me,” he said. “I don’t have loftier goals. My goal is to go out and put on a hell of a performance Saturday night and do my thing. Fight the way that I fight and that’s it.”
