UFC FN 67: Carlos Condit Wants “Whoever Has The Title” Following Latest Win
By FCF Staff
Having scored an impressive, stoppage win in his Octagon return, perennial welterweight contender Carlos Condit has his sites set on a title fight next.
Condit battled Thiago Alves at UFC Fight Night 67 on Saturday, which marked the first time he had fought since last March, when he injured his knee versus Tyron Woodley. The former WEC champ badly broke the nose of Alves in round two with a standing elbow, and the bout was stopped after the frame.
At the post fight presser, the promotion’s #4 ranked welterweight was asked about what he wants next, and Condit relayed the following:
“I want whoever has the title in a couple months. Whether it’s Rory or whether it’s Robbie Lawler, I want that guy.”
The champion Lawler is set to face Rory MacDonald on July 11th at UFC 189.
Condit was also asked whether he saw the finish line coming, after he landed the punishing elbow, which broke the nose of Alves. The Jackson-Wink MMA fighter stated:
“I didn’t exactly know what had happened, but I felt it on my elbow and I knew he was hurt. I hurt him with the first, rising elbow and then hurt him again with the spinning back elbow, and I could just feel the fight drained out of him after I hit him that first time.”
With the win, Condit improved his overall record to 30-8. Woodley (#3), MacDonald (#2) and former champ Johny Hendricks (#1) are ranked ahead of the vet currently.
