Why Carlos Condit Belongs In The UFC

If you missed last night’s WEC 35 event…as a MMA fan…you lost.   A tough opponent and near exhaustion couldn’t break “The Natural Born Killer”, and that performance alone was enough to justify him fighting in the crowded WW division of the UFC.  Carlos Condit displayed the heart of a champion as he defended his WEC WW belt for the third time.  That is a scary thought, but that’s just the tip of his resume at the ripe age of twenty four.

Condit is largely unknown to the casual fan, as he has fought in primarily smaller shows throughout his career such as the WEC, Pancrase, and Rumble On The Rock.  While he hasn’t faced the upper echelon of fighters at 170lbs, he has faced some formidable opponents.  Jake Shields, Frank Trigg, Renato Verissimo, and Carlo Prater just to name a few.  Physically, Condit doesn’t look like much…but he’s well versed in all facets of the game which reflects in his win/loss record.  He has 9 wins by KO/TKO, and 13 wins via submission.  Which means he has finished his opponent in all 22 of his wins.  The #1 ranked WW(GSP) in world can’t even say that.
