ALBUQUERQUE., During his visit this weekend to Albuquerque, New Mexico, WBA “Regular” Super Welterweight Champion, Austin Trout, stopped by the world renown Jackson’s-Winkeljohn Mixed Martial Arts gym to meet Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit.
The meeting was originally scheduled to be a sparring session between the two New Mexican champions but a cut suffered by Carlos Condit during training last week, turned the rendezvous into a simple session.
The only two male combat sports champions from New Mexico exchanged stories of past fights.
Both men offered each other tips and strategies. Condit, an orthodox fighter, who tends to transition in fights to southpaw, picked Trout’s brain for weakness he would be able to exploit in a lefty.
While on the bags Trout, even delivered a very impressive flying roundhouse kick that drew a look of acknowledgement from Condit.
Trout and Condit are preparing for fights to take place in the not too distant future.
Trout, has a possible September 29th match-up with WBA number four ranked Roberto Garcia and Condit has a highly anticipated contest with George St. Pierre at UFC 154.
The two men hope to meet again to test each other in the ring.
