Loses via Round 2 submission at UFC 232
WelterweightUFC
December 29, 2018
Condit was defeated by Michael Chiesa via submission (kimura) at 0:56 of Round 2 at UFC 232 on Saturday in Los Angeles.
ANALYSIS
Condit showed good grappling in this fight. He was taken down often in this fight, but almost submitted the BJJ ace Chiesa. In the first round he defended against a rear-naked choke when "Maverick" had his back, and then almost submitted Chiesa with an arm bar. Condit was never able to gain enough separation to get his striking going. In the second round, Chiesa took "The Natural Born Killer" down right away and worked for a kimura. It seemed as if Condit fought off the submission, but Chiesa finished the submission with one arm. Condit may have suffered damage to his arm or shoulder as a result of the submission.
Draws Michael Chiesa at UFC 232
WelterweightUFC
September 26, 2018
Condit will welcome Michael Chiesa to the welterweight division at UFC 232 on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Condit came up short against Alex Oliveira in his only other fight in 2018, bringing his overall record to 30-12. He's had a tough going of late, however, losing four consecutive fights and two of his last three via submission. That run included an extended layoff where Condit had reportedly considered retirement. He'll now look to get back in the win column under the bright lights of a pay-per-view card, drawing a former 155-pounder in Chiesa. Though Chiesa was always big for the lightweight division, the two will measure up almost identically when they meet up for a 170-pound clash. Condit boasts better striking numbers, but it's unlikely Chiesa wants this to be a standup battle. He'll likely look to exploit Condit's sub-par takedown defense of just 37 percent, and work his jiu-jitsu from there. It should be a relatively even matchup in terms of betting odds, with Condit's success likely dependent on his ability to remain standing.
In midst of four-fight losing streak after Saturday's setback
WelterweightUFC
April 14, 2018
Condit lost to Alex Oliveira via submission (guillotine) at 3:17 of Round 2 at UFC on FOX 29 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
You can't help but wonder if that will be the end for Condit. Originally scheduled to fight a much weaker opponent in Matt Brown, Condit agreed to face Oliveira on less than two weeks notice and he paid the price. Condit is going to be kicking himself that he didn't finish Oliveira late in Round 1. He clamped on very deep RNC but Oliveira managed to hang on until the bell. Round 2 was a different story. Condit suffered a massive gash on his head that left him bleeding like a stuck pig, and while he fought the guillotine that finished the fight until the very end, he was unable to survive. Condit just hasn't been the same since his split decision loss to Robbie Lawler in a UFC Welterweight Championship fight at UFC 195 in January 2016. He has lost three straight fights since and for a guy that has openly contemplated retirement in the past, it might be time for Condit to finally step aside.
Taking on Alex Oliveira
WelterweightUFC
April 3, 2018
Condit will face Alex Oliveira in the UFC on FOX 29 co-main event after Matt Brown (knee) suffered a torn ACL, Dave Doyle of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The former WEC welterweight and UFC interim welterweight champion will look to break a streak of three straight losses, dating back to 2015. However, the "The Natural Born Killer" remains one of the top welterweights on the UFC roster. Oliveira is coming off a loss to Yancy Medeiros via TKO (punches) back in December, but recorded a 4-0 record with one no-contest before that.
No longer fighting Matt Brown at UFC Glendale
WelterweightUFC
April 2, 2018
Condit will no longer fight Matt Brown at UFC Glendale, as Brown has suffered a torn ACL, Ariel Helwani of MMAfighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The UFC is reportedly trying to keep Condit on the card for UFC Glendale, but they've yet to find a replacement fighter to match up against him. Additional updates should be provided once it's determined whether or not Condit will have a new opponent, but for now, his return to the Octagon has been put on hold.
