Former UFC Interim Welterweight champion Carlos Condit is on a 4-fight skid, the longest in his storied career – but he isn’t finished yet, it seems.
Condit has apparently told his management team First Round Management that he intends to fight again later this year, according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.
Condit opened up on his future and his career, with a heartbreaking message on Instagram, following his defeat to Alex Oliveira.
Condit’s heart breaking message to fans
Post choke out, where the fuck am I , WTF happened, feeling kinda warm and fuzzy , hope I didn't just piss my shorts on live TV , thousand yard stare. I've posted plenty of pictures looking like a Badass. Triumphant and powerful… But here's the flip side, crumpled and weak in defeat. Rough day at the office 😐 Fuck it though, I had fun. I trained my ass off and I came to fight. This is what leaving it all out there looked like on Saturday. Much respect to my opponent and his team. Thank you for taking the fight on short notice. Congratulations and best of luck in the future. I don't know what's next guys… I still love this game, and most days I still feel that fire, I absolutely love what it do, but maybe my time has passed. I don't know the answer. this is what I know, this is my passion. I will never stop training, and If that leads me back to the the octagon, you know I'll try to make it bloody for ya. Right now I'm looking forward to summer shenanigans with my sons and to expanding @hundredhandscoffee .
Carlos Condit, one of MMA’s pioneers has been competing professionally since 2002. He hit his recent slump after a very controversial split decision loss to Robbie Lawler in a ‘fight of the year’ title scrap. Condit openly expressed his lack of desire for fighting after the war. Condit temporarily shelved himself for more than a year (2016-17) and returned to make another run at the title – but he has looked a shadow of his former self.
This news comes as a blessing for all ‘Natural Born Killer’ fans. These recent losses could have sparked a fire under his belly and we could yet see the best form of Carlos Condit, one more time.
