Following a submisison loss to late replacement Alex Oliveira at UFC On FOX 29 on Saturday night, Carlos Condit has admitted that he’s now questioning whether he’s still got what it takes to compete at the highest level.
“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,” Condit wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself post-fight.
“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.”
