Welterweight veteran Carlos Condit’s next fight in the Octagon will be against Max Griffin at UFC 264 on July 10th.
Not so long ago Condit’s time in the sport appeared to be perilously close to coming to an end after a five fight losing streak was followed by almost two years of inactivity.
However, Condit got back on the horse in October of last year and emerged with a unanimous decision victory over Court McGee and then followed that up by also defeated fellow veteran Matt Brown on the scorecards in January.
Remarkably, that’s the first time Condit has enjoyed back-to-back wins in the best part of a decade, but the 37-year-old is still hungry for more.
In the 35-year-old Griffin he’s facing another fighter coming off back-to-back wins, having TKO’d Ramiz Brahimaj last year and then KO’d Song Kenan in March.
Griffin’s overall UFC record is more patchy than his recent successes would suggest though, going 5-6 overall so far.
Condit vs. Griffin joins a UFC 264 event that will be headlined by a must-see trilogy fight between Dustin Porier and Conor McGregor, while Gilbert Burns fights Stephen Thompson, Greg Hardy faces Tai Tuivasa and Kevin Lee moves up to welterweight to fight Sean Brady.
