Carlos Condit is ready to return to mixed martial arts (MMA) action.
The former interim UFC and WEC welterweight champ, Condit has been competing in the sport since 2002 and has picked up notable wins over the likes of Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald, Dan Hardy, Nick Diaz, and Thiago Alves. He has also shared the Octagon with Demian Maia, Georges St-Pierre, Tyron Woodley, and Johny Hendricks. His last appearance inside the cage saw him suffer a first-round submission loss to Maia, after which he began contemplating retirement.
That fight was over a year ago in August of 2016, however, “The Natural Born Killer” took to Twitter earlier today (Tues. September 19, 2017) to send a tweet to Sean Shelby, claiming he is looking to return to fighting come December or January:
what's up big guy…? I'm wanting to fight in December or January… what say you!?

There are plenty of contenders in the UFC’s 170-pound division for Condit to square up with, such as Rafael dos Anjos, Neil Magny, or even Santiago Ponzinibbio who comes off a huge first round knockout win over Gunnar Nelson.
Do you think we’ll see Condit back in the age by the end of the year? Who would you like to see him fight? Let us know in the comments!
