Carlos ‘The Natural Born Killer’ Condit is looking like a BEAST for UFC 195. Can’t wait for the fight with Robbie Lawler.
It’s been a great year for MMA fans, we’ve seen the featherweight, lightweight, middleweight, light-heavyweight and heavyweight titles change hands in the UFC, with a number of huge upsets in the promotion’s marquee divisions. All this, and we’re still yet to see one of the most highly anticipated bookings of the year go down. Originally scheduled for the UFC 193 slot that was eventually filled by Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm, Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit for the welterweight title is any fan’s dream fight.
The two oft-blood covered warriors have been putting on exciting spectacles for years, and now the former interim champion ‘NBK,’ who lost in his unification bout with Georges St-Pierre, will get another crack of the whip. ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler has been experiencing a career high after more than a decade in the sport, and put on a war for the ages against Rory MacDonald at UFC 189.
After a long layoff Condit returned to action with a classic performance against Thiago Alves to earn the title shot, in about he ended with a bloody TKO. New training footage has emerged of Condit, who saved the world from yet another Lawler vs. Hendricks fight, training like an absolute animal. Check it out:
Thanks to our friends at MMADigest for putting together the cool footage.
This will undoubtedly be the toughest test of both men’s illustrious and storied careers. Whoever wins will prove that this isn’t always a young man’s sport, although neither man is considered old, they’ve competed for many years at the top level.
