When Georges St-Pierre revealed that his proudest moment in his career was surviving a kick to the head from Carlos Condit

Must read

Recently retired Carlos Condit is one of the few men who has given Georges St-Pierre a legitimately difficult time inside the Octagon. The longtime former UFC welterweight champion has previously admitted that his proudest moment as a fighter was when he was able to survive a brutal kick to the head from ‘The Natural Born Killer’.

At a 2019 press conference, St-Pierre recalled his stellar career after announcing his retirement from the sport. He then revealed how proud he was when he fought Condit at UFC 154 in November 2012.

“The moment I’m most proud of my career is when they left me in the fighting game,” St-Pierre said. “It’s when I fell with a kick to the head of Carlos Condit and I fell and was able to stand up.”

In the end, Georges St-Pierre proved to be the best fighter. He defended his undisputed title by unanimous decision after five rounds. However, GSP’s post-fight photos reveal just how much damage Condit has inflicted on the seemingly invincible champion.

What seemed like spending five rounds with an excellent Carlos Condit in the old days.

St-Pierre added that people were always surprised by his response as they often expected him to pick his best moments and victories as his proudest moment.

“Sounds strange,” GSP said. “People think it will be a win or a knockout (but) for me it’s when I got knocked down by a kick to the head and I survived.”


Reviewing Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit

Georges St-Pierre took an extended hiatus in 2011 after securing his sixth successful title defense against Jake Shields. ‘Rush’ was forced to take a break to heal from his torn ACL.

In his absence, Carlos Condit emerged as the interim welterweight champion, beating Nick Diaz at UFC 143 over five rounds. With five straight wins under Condit’s belt, the stage was set for a unification fight against St-Pierre.

The first round saw St-Pierre use his vaunted wrestling advantage for a mid-round takedown. Condit threatened the champion with an attempt at armbar, but to no avail.

Things heated up in the second round when Georges St-Pierre defeated Condit with a combination of strikes. The French-Canadian legend proved he could trade blows with ‘The Natural Born Killer’ and achieve significant success.

The third frame saw Condit’s best work. The then interim champion landed a massive kick to the head that sent GSP crashing to the mat. Condit followed up with Ground-and-Pound, but ‘Rush’ was able to pull up the guard and survive.

The last two rounds were all by Georges St-Pierre, but to say that Carlos Condit pushed the welterweight GOAT to the limit would be a huge understatement.
