Jake Ellenberger: Carlos Condit doesn't want to fight me again ,and I don't blame him

Quote:

Hard-hitting Welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger has one loss since transitioning to the big leagues of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

A close split decision to Carlos Condit.

Since that disappointing night back in 2009, which served as his Octagon debut, "The Juggernaut" has won six straight contests with four violent finishes. He recently planished Diego Sanchez in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV earlier this month to put himself "in the mix."

Like Ellenberger, Condit has been flawless since they first met in Oklahoma City, recording four straight wins with three (T)KO victories. His unanimous decision victory over Nick Diaz at UFC 143 was good enough to earn him the division's Interim Championship.

With Georges St. Pierre rehabbing a surgically repaired knee, it could be several months before "The Natural Born Killer" has the opportunity to unify the 170-pound titles.

That leaves him a pretty sizable window to settle some unfinished business with Ellenberger, who tells Sherdog's Beatdown Radio it's a fight Condit doesn't want, and for good reason.

Check it out, after the jump.

"I think the fans do want it, but at the same time, I donít know if thatís what the UFC wants or not. I really donít. If it was up to me, then yeah, weíd probably be fighting in May or June, but I donít know if thatís what the UFC wants. I think they kind of still put it in Conditís hands, but I know Carlos. I know his manager, and I know they donít want that fight. But again, if I put myself in their shoes, I donít blame them. Itís not even necessarily a personal thing. Carlos right now has the belt, and thatís where I want to be. Heís a fantastic fighter and heís in the position heís in for a reason. I was hoping I could get another rematch with Condit, but whether he fights again is going to be up to him. Ö I wouldnít blame him if he wants to wait. Thatís just the reality of it, but in my opinion, I sure hope I get that fight."

Condit is not opposed to fighting prior to St. Pierre's return, but it all depends on how quickly the Canadian can "Rush" back into action. A November or December timetable will likely give Ellenberger the opportunity he's looking for; however, anything sooner than that and Condit will opt to wait.

And protect his Interim title in the process.

Even if he goes on to defeat St. Pierre, he'll likely cross paths with Ellenberger again anyway. It's (perhaps) just a question of when, not if. Unless some fantasy matchmakers out there in MMA land have a different perspective?

I'd pick Carlos to win the rematch as well with his more technical striking.

This would be a five round fight. Ellenberger would get slaughtered.

He almost beat him the first time, not sure how Ellenberger's cardio could hold up though, I think Condit would sub him in the 4th or 5th.

Haha, the thread title was a little out of context you sneaky bastard

I came in here ready to rip Ellenberger a new arsehole. All that aside, I'd take Carlos in a rematch. Jake has some glaring omissions in his game, and I'm in no way buying into this kid like others are.

I would like to see a rematch. I think Condit takes it though.

What was the point of making a interim title if condit wont fight the top contender. they just called it a interim title to sell more ppvs

Imo Ellenberger won the first fight and I would back him to win again

Not sure why people are saying Condit would surely win a re-match. IMO Ellenberger won the first fight despite gassing. If he works out his cardio issues I think he beats Condit.

Of course if he gasses then Condit wins. So basically Condit needs to hope Ellenberger gasses.

Its certainly is not a guarunteed win for Condit and Im sure Condit is not doing backflips to fight Ellenberger again.

Dont forget people, Condit beat two of the WW divisions young talented fighters in Rory McDonald and Jake Ellenberger on cardio alone, not because he was a better fighter.
