Although it’s only been a few days since Carlos Condit scored an impressive stoppage win over Martin Kampmann at UFC FN 27, speculation as to who the former interim champ will battle next continues. While “The Natural Born Killer” continues to sit at the top of the welterweight rankings in the #2 slot, four of the top five welterweights are currently booked for bouts, and Condit already holds a split decision win over the #5 ranked Jake Ellenberger.
While appearing on MMA Junkie.Radio recently, Condit was asked about his next bout, and the rugged welterweight relayed he’s interested in facing Matt Brown.
“He’s been on a tear, and it’d be really exciting for the fans,” Condit noted about “The Immortal”, who is on a six fight winning streak that includes stoppage wins over Jordan Mein, Mike Swick, and most recently Mike Pyle.
“I’d like that fight, and we’ll have to see what happens”
There’s no doubt that the MMA masses would love to see Condit-Brown, considering the abilities and aggressive style of both men. Now of course, Dana White recently revealed that the promotion would like to book Brown versus Tarec Saffiedine, but the latter is still recovering from injuries. While the former Strikeforce champ hopes to return in late December or early in January, Saffiedine will know more in a couple of weeks, in terms of when he can fight again.
