WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit is set to make his third title defense against Hiromitsu Miura in one of the featured fights at WEC 35 on Sunday at 6 p.m. on Versus at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Condit-Miura is one of three title fights at WEC 35.

Condit, of Albuquerque, N.M., captured the WEC 170-pound title with a rear-naked choke over John Alessio at WEC 26, submitted Brock Larson with an armbar at WEC 29 and submitted Carlo Prater with a guillotine choke at WEC 32. He is 4-0 with four submission victories in the WEC.

I got a chance to interview Condit earlier this week. he talked about his upcoming fight, his trip to visit the troops in Afghanistan and his thoughts about th 170-pound weight class.

Here is what “The Natural Born Killer” had to say:

On his thoughts heading into his fight against Hiromitsu Miura:

“I’m really looking forward to this fight. I’ve been feeling real sharp in my training camp. I think it’s a pretty good opponent for me. He’s pretty tough. He’s a pretty well-versed striker and I’m looking to display some of my standup aand striking skills against him.”
