One of the most exciting fights on the UFC 132 card is the battle between welterweight contenders Dong Hyun Kim and Carlos Condit. On the USA TODAY / SB Nation MMA Rankings, Kim checks in at #20 with a 14-0-1 1 NC record. Condit sits at #7 with a 26-5 record.
Both men have expressed a belief in recent interviews that they're deserving of a title shot with a win at UFC 132.
I've been on a tear and Dong Hyun Kim is an undefeated fighter. I think whoever wins this fight deserves a title shot. I wouldn't [have a problem fighting Georges St. Pierre], my goal is to get the UFC title belt around my waist and whoever has that belt is fair game.
"I'd like to fight GSP right after this fight, but I think that I'd probably have to fight one more fight,"
"Style-wise, I'm probably going to be the best match-up for GSP, and I'm going to have to prove myself from winning this fight,"
This should be a great fight and it's going to be difficult to deny that the winner of the bout at least deserves to be "in the mix" for a title shot in the near future.
