Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Welterweight Carlos Condit is feeling good about himself once again. Having suffered a horrific knee injury in his bout against Tyron Woodley at UFC 171 more than a year ago, the American has now said that he feels back to one hundred per cent and is primed to take on Brazilian fighter Thiago Alves in what promises to be a slugfest.
Condit recently travelled to Brazil to promote the card set for May 30 which both of them are headlining and he said that he feels really good. He mentioned that it was unfortunate that he blew his knee but now he is feeling back to his best – both mentally and physically.
According to Carlos Condit, he is back and it is all a part of the game adding that he is just trying to get the strength back to his leg with the ACL. He mentioned that he also working on his overall development as a Mixed Martial Artist. He firmly believes that this injury has been a blessing in disguise for him and that he will come back stronger.
A former interim UFC Welterweight champion, Condit knows the importance of the match against Alves. He said that a win against the Brazilian will take him a long way along the path to getting a shot at the title but he doesn’t want to look beyond Pitbull just now. (more…)

It has been almost a year since former interim Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Welterweight champion Carlos Condit stepped inside the UFC Octagon. And not only did he lose his match to Tyron Woodley in devastating fashion via knockout, the end result was not really too pretty for him s well as he suffered a torn meniscus and ACL that put him on the shelf indefinitely.
Moreover, the loss meant that his record in his last four fights was down to 1-3 and now, the Natural Born Killer is ready to make his return to the Octagon and start making up for lost time. According to reports, Condit could face Thiago Alves in a match scheduled for the end of May or early in June with both the fighters as well as UFC officials agreeing on making the match happen.
Carlos Condit, who has a professional record of 29-8, has hit a very difficult patch of form ever since he defeated Nick Diaz to win the interim championship belt. The fact that he had to face three extremely difficult challenges in the form of Georges St. Pierre, Woodley and Johnny Hendricks also didn’t help his cause much. But he did manage to secure a win against Martin Kampmann in between, avenging the loss on his debut fight in the UFC in 2009. (more…)
