There is only one other fighter other than UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre to have defeated both Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck – Johny Hendricks . With an outstanding 13-1 record the Team Takedown welterweight is riding a four-fight winning streak and poised to challenge for the welterweight title. Unfortunately there’s a catch involved
UFC interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit likes nothing more than entering the Octagon and throwing punches with whomever is standing across from him.
Don’t mind Carlos Condit if he sits on the sidelines, waiting for a title-unification bout with Georges St. Pierre .

While both men may have their hands full in the coming months, UFC welterweights Diego Sanchez and Carlos Condit could eventually cross paths down the road depending on how 2012 plays out. Though the two are teammates at Greg Jackson ’s gym in New Mexico, Sanchez recently made it clear there is no controversy to be had when it comes to the possibility of the training partners facing off inside the Octagon with a title on the line. Straying from the attitude causing a rift between Jon Jones-Rashad Evans , as well as the one seeing Evans refuse to face Keith Jardine a few years back, Sanchez spoke to The MMA Hour earlier this week where he said he’s already discussed such a scenario with “The Natural Born Killer”.
