Carlos Condit is asking for some change...at least in this new hilarious video campaign posted by the UFC's YouTube page.

Condit comes into UFC 154 looking to become the undisputed UFC Welterweight Champion.  He has a 28-5 record and is on a five fight winning streak.

Condit didn't come over to the UFC until a year after GSP started his current reign as king of the 170 pound division.

The ad also states that if elected...if he wins the championship, he will be known for three things: "knockouts, knockouts [and] shorts" (obviously a shot at GSP's usual spandex ring attire).

Condit's track record speaks for itself, as he has knocked out three of his last four opponents, those being Rory MacDonald, Dan Hardy and Kim Dong-Hyun.

St. Pierre is known for the ground game, so Condit will have to use everything he knows from training with GSP so he can be ready to block take down attempts.  That way, he keeps the fight standing up, away from his opponent's greatest strength.

Condit will do his best to "stand" for everything he believes in and is hoping to get your support as he tries to secure your votes...secure a victory and claim the belt.

Who will come out of UFC 154 still wearing gold?
