Matt Brown Says He’d Likely Come Out of “Semi-Retirement” to Fight Carlos Condit
By FCF Staff
Matt Brown has made it clear he’s thinking about hanging up the gloves, but recently the welterweight said he’d likely put retirement off, in order to fight Carlos Condit.
Condit recently returned to the cage at UFC 219, and lost via decision to Neil Magny. During a follow up episode of the Fight Society podcast, Brown had this to say, while discussing whether he’d be interested in fighting Condit (quote via MMA Fighting):
“Maybe it’s time for me and him to lock horns,” said Brown. “I’d love to. I’ve got so much respect for him. Of course, I would love to. Everybody would want to see that fight. It was supposed to happen before. We’ll see what happens. That’s definitely one people would want to see no matter what. It would be a fight for the ages. Now it would certainly be a fight that would make me want to come out of semi-retirement.”
“I haven’t made any decisions on anything. That would be one that would probably wake me up and get me out of bed.”
Brown is coming off a vicious, knockout win over Diego Sanchez in November. After the fight was announced, Brown said it would be the last of his career, but since then the rugged vet has said he isn’t sure if he’s done fighting or not.
