Carlo Prater Is Ready For The Fight Of His Life

Just days before the biggest fight of his career, Carlo Prater stopped by The Park to discusses his upcoming bout against WEC Welterweight champ Carlos Condit this Wednesday in Albuquerque, NM. Prater will be making his WEC debut and will also be looking to capture his second victory over the 23-year-old Condit. He is actually one of the few contenders out there who never received a shot at fighting for one of the major MMA promotions but come Wednesday all that will change. Some of the topics we also touched on included:

* The difference between the Carlos Condit he defeated in 2004 and the one he will be facing in a few days

* How he received a title shot in his WEC debut

* His strategy going into the fight

* Why it took so long to make it to the “big leagues”

* His thoughts on fighting in the WEC as opposed to the UFC

* Why he was not promoted in the last WEC show and why he is the only fighter from the triple main event not to be featured on the official poster (weird isn’t it?)

Really enjoyed this one. I genuinely felt how anxious, ready and excited Prater was to fight Condit. Take a listen.

    Gotta support your boys Pavinator.

    Seriously, what an insane card top-to-bottom. Don’t forget about our native son Mark “The Machine” Hominick. I love that bastard.

  4. [...] This one has a photo too.  As much as we have a hard time understanding this sport, I can realize how important it is for Carlo.  As Carla says, she doesn’t know whether to pray that he wins because he needs the money or to lose so he will quit and do something else.  He will probably continue to coach and maybe teach at the American School in Brasilia when he doesn’t spend so much time training.  “World Welterweight Champ” will read well on a resume.  J http://www.jarrypark.com/2008/02/08/carlo-prater-is-ready-for-the-fight-of-his-life/ [...]
