Condit will take on Max Griffin in a welterweight matchup at UFC 264 on July 10, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Condit defeated Matt Brown via unanimous decision at UFC on ABC 1 in January and has now won back-to-back fights. Although his January matchup was the final fight on his UFC contract, he'll return to the company in July. Griffin has also won his last two fights, and he most recently defeated Song Kenan via KO (punch) at UFC Vegas 22 in March. Condit has an edge in height, but the two fighters are even in reach.

Condit defeated Matt Brown via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ABC 1 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
It was the correct call in a fight in which neither man was able to create all that much separation from the other. Condit struggled with the wrestling of Brown in the early going before finding himself and controlling much of the second frame on the mat. That lead to a 118-27 edge for Condit in total strikes landed over the course of the first two rounds, although the fight never felt that lopsided at any particular point. Condit continued to limit Brown's space offensively in Round 3 en route to the victory. Condit has now won back-to-back fights for the first time since July 2011 to February 2012. Despite the recent string of success, this was the final fight on Condit's UFC contract, and it remains to be seen if the company has any interest in bringing back the 36-year-old.

Condit will take on Matt Brown on Jan. 30, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Condit rebounded from a five-fight losing streak (and a 2-8 stretch over his last 10 fights) to defeat Court McGee by unanimous decision in October. He'll be looking to win back-to-back fights for the first time since 2012. In Brown, he'll face a fighter who's lost six of his last nine fights, most recently falling to Miguel Baeza by TKO in May.
Turns back clock against McGee
WelterweightUFC
October 3, 2020
Condit defeated Court McGee via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
The first few minutes were largely a feeling out process, with neither veteran landing much of note. Condit interestingly spent most of Round 1 in a southpaw stance, but the change-up in style didn't get immediate results -- at least until the very end of the frame. Moments before the clock hit zeros, Condit connected with a massive right hand that sent McGee to the canvas, but the bell sounded before "The Natural Born Killer" could work in any follow-up shots. The damage was already done, however, as the telecast heavily implied that Condit had broken McGee's nose. Condit opened up a bit with more combinations in the second round, and his confidence was building as he pressed forward and landed several big kicks. Round 3 was more even, and the telecast even seemed to imply that McGee had taken back the lead in unofficial total strikes. Condit was landing more to the head, however, in addition to landing the biggest strike of the fight. He ultimately swept the scorecards, snapping his five-fight losing streak. Perhaps the 36-year-old has another run in him, but he'll likely still find himself a betting underdog against most of the division's elite.
