Carlos Condit Likely To Retire If Not Granted Title Shot
Former WEC welterweight champion and UFC welterweight interim champion, Carlos Condit, has apparently met with the UFC to discuss his future. According to Ariel Helwani, reporting for UFC Tonight, ‘The Natural Born Killer’ is only interested in stepping back in the Octagon if it’s a title fight.
Back at UFC 195, Condit challenged welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, in a fight that is easily the early candidate for ‘Fight of the Year’ in 2016. Many felt that Condit should have be awarded the decision victory, in a closely contested battle. However, the judges gave Robbie Lawler the split decision victory.
Carlos Condit has a UFC record of 7-5, and an overall MMA record of 30-9. Condit has a massive fan-base, due to his aggressive fighting style and desire to finish his opponent, every time he steps in the UFC’s Octagon.
There’s no official plans for UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler’s next fight, as of right now. It’s believed that his next title defense could happen at UFC 200 in July.
Carlos Condit is in a holding pattern after meeting with the UFC. He wants a title shot or could retire. (Per @ArielHelwani)
