Carlos Condit contemplated on making it the end of his career, having lost to Robbie Lawler at the beginning of the year.
Now it appears that he may be even closer to hanging up his four-ounce gloves for good.
One bout removed him from very nearly claiming welterweight gold, Condit returned to the Octagon at UFC on Fox 21 in Vancouver with a chance to jump right back into the welterweight title picture.
Nevertheless, the evening did not go as planned, as “The Natural Born Killer” was overwhelmed by the grappling of Demian Maia and tapped to a rear-naked choke 1:52 into the first round of their main event clash.
Condit managed to land only one significant strike before succumbing to Maia. It was a far cry from his previous outing against Lawler, a bout many thought he won and is one of the frontrunners for “Fight of the Year” for 2016. Read the rest of this entry »

Carlos Condit may have fought his last match as he is considering retirement from the UFC following his defeat to Robbie Lawler at the UFC 195.
The match between the duo was contested in a hard fought five round match with Carlos Condit performing below par despite out landing champion Robbie Lawler by a significant number of strikes.
Following the defeat, Condit said he left everything he had in the arena the night he fought Lawler and believes that’s enough to draw the curtain on his impressive career so far. This were his words after the defeat: “It’s not an emotional thing. I’m not dejected. I have to evaluate, but there’s a possibility that might be my last one. We’ll see,”
“I’ve been at this for a long time, over 40 professional MMA and kickboxing (fights). I came up short tonight”, he added. Read the rest of this entry »

The former UFC champion Carlos Condit made an alleged announcement recently that he is undergoing training for his next fight with Nick Diaz.
The UFC Welterweight champion had achieved the title of 170 pounds when he defeated Nick Diaz during UFC 143. The natural fighter had his championship fights with Robbie Lawler and Georges St-Pierre. Condit is doing all the required preparations for a rematch with Nick and it will take place sometime after August as Diaz is still under suspension period. Once Diaz is released from it, there is going to a tough competition between these two fighters which would be fun to watch.

Fighters in the ring often do much more than simply providing entertainment and recreation to their fans and onlookers.
Some become public figures for the way they develop their bodies and spirit for fights and martial arts. Indeed, the kind of rigorous routines, grueling fights and workouts, stamina and mental strength that one needs to showcase can help motivate many others to get over their weaknesses and be better individuals.
Carlos Condit is one such figure who does more than simply fight in the ring. Being a mixed martial artist from America, he has competed in the welterweight category. He also holds the title of WEC Welterweight Champion. As in 2015 he obtained the fourth rank among UFC welterweights worldwide. Condit has been able to achieve thirty wins in his fighting career so far. Out of those wins, Carlos has mostly made victory either by knocking out his opponent or making them submit. He himself has never lost due to being knocked out or being struck down. He has lost only due to being injured. Read the rest of this entry »
