By FCF Staff
A day after it was announced that Joseph Benavidez has returned from fighting, it’s being reported that another renowned fighter, Carlos Condit, has also hung up the gloves.
The 37-year-old Condit (32-14) is coming off a decision loss to Max Griffin in July, which followed consecutive wins he recorded over Court McGee and Matt Brown. According to a report from MMA Fighting, Condit’s manager, Malki Kawa, has confirmed that the decorated fighter has retired.
Condit made his pro-debut all the way back in 2002, and the New Mexico fighter went on to win the WEC welterweight title in 2007. Condit proceeded to defend the belt three times, before making way to the UFC in 2009, when the WEC merged with the promotion.
In 2012, Condit won the UFC’s interim welterweight title by defeating Nick Diaz via decision. Condit dropped a decision to world champion, Georges St-Pierre in his next fight.
Condit fought for the welterweight title on more time in 2016 against then-champion, Robbier Lawler. The latter won the thrilling fight via split decision,
