The last time Carlos Condit had his hand raised in the Octagon was way back in 2015. Since then, he has come short five times in a row and been submitted in three of those fights.
On December 7th in Washington DC, he’s hoping to put an end to all that. The UFC announced yesterday that Condit will face off with Mickey Gall on a UFC on ESPN card in the nation’s capital.
Condit (30-13, 7-9 UFC), a former interim UFC and full WEC welterweight champ, last competed in December when he was beaten by Michael Chiesa. Many believed he would retire following that bout, but the 35-year-old decided to press on.
Gall (6-2, 5-2 UFC) is coming off a decision win over Salim Touahri earlier this month in New Jersey. He famously has wins over CM Punk and Sage Northcutt, but has gone 2-2 since those victories.
UFC on ESPN 7 will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC. The event is expected to be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.
