CARLOS CONDIT UNDECIDED ABOUT MMA FUTURE

Carlos Condit openly wondered back in January if his defeat to then-welterweight champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 195 might be the swan song to his 15-year blended martial arts career.


And though Condit decided to in the long run jump back into the fray, the question of retirement cropped up once again on Saturday night , when in the throes of his first-round defeat to Demian Maia at UFC on FOX 21, the 32-year-old Condit owned up to the fact that the end of his fighting career may be approaching.

Condit (30-10) endured the fastest loss of his fighting profession at UFC on FOX 21, submitting to the jiu-jitsu superpower of Maia via rear-naked choke in less than two minutes. The loss worsen a career slip which has seen Condit go 2-5 over his consecutive seven fights since he was decorated the interim UFC welterweight champion , and even though he nearly captured the UFC title earlier this year, Condit confessed that retirement is one thing that has been in the back of his mind for a while now.

Carlos Condit May Fight Thiago Alves in UFC Fight Night 67

UFC Fight Night 67 is likely to take place in Brazil. UFC is already trying to finalise the first matchup of the event and it is likely that the 30 years old American Mixed Martial Artist who was the champion in the Welterweight Category, Carlos Condit, will face off against the 31 years old Brazilian Mixed Martial Artist, Thiago Alves who has a considerable amount of experience of fighting in UFC. Their match is likely to be held in Brazil on 30th of May this year. The match has not been finalised yet. It is likely that UFC’s Fight Night 67 will be held in Goiania Arena which is in Goiania, Brazil. In this very Arena the second Dan Henderson versus Vitor Belfort match was held in the year 2013.

Carlos Condit has managed to secure victory in 29 and lost only eight professional bouts. Condit injured his knee fighting Tyron Woodley in UFC 171 last year which was held in the month of March and did not take part in any match since then. If Condit indeed gets to fight Alves in Brazil this year then it would be his first fight since then. Carlos Condit’s last win was when he managed to knock out Martin Kampmann in the fourth round and this year it is obvious that he will try to the best of his ability to keep winning matches.

Thiago Alves managed to win 21 professional matches and he lost only nine of them. He had suffered a number of injuries and did not fight for a little over two years but he took part in UFC 183 this year which was held in the Month of January and in the second round of his bout against Jordan Mein he managed to knock his opponent out. Thiago Alves won two matches consecutively this year, one against Jordan Mein and another against Seth Baczynski.
