It’s been over a year and a half since Carlos Condit last stepped foot inside the Octagon, but the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim Welterweight champion of the world is back and he is hungry for a win.
“The Natural Born Killer” ended his hiatus to compete at the upcoming UFC 219 pay-per-view (PPV) event — which is set to go down on Dec. 30, 2017 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada – against Neil Magny.
Condit was last seen getting choked out by jiu-jitsu ace Demian Maia at UF Con FOX 21, leading to Carlos taking an extended leave from the sport, citing head trauma concerns. Now, one of the most exciting and talented 170-pound fighters in the history of the sport will look to remind the fight game he still has plenty left in the tank.
It won’t be easy, as Neil is as tough as they come.
In the lead-up to Condit’s much-anticipated return, UFC released a promo video highlighting his come back and his upcoming bout against Magny for your viewing pleasure.
UFC 219 is going to be headlined by a women’s Featherweight bout that will see division champion Cris Cyborg face off against Holly Holm, while Khabib Nurmagomedov and Edson Barboza collide in the co-main event.
