Entering Final Fight of UFC Deal, Carlos Condit Willing to Consider Other Organizations

will enter his
UFC on ABC 1
bout against Matt Brown on
the final fight of his current promotional deal.

“The Natural Born Killer” isn’t looking too far ahead, however. Not
after ending a five-bout losing streak with a much-needed decision
triumph over Court McGee
this past October.

“My performance over the last couple years has not been stellar,”
Condit said during a virtual media session on Wednesday. “It has
not been the best period of my career as far as wins and losses.
What’s really important is putting on a good show on Saturday
night, and then I think I’ll be in a good position to kind of
figure out exactly what I want to do.”

UFC president Dana White said that the promotion would make more
than 60 cuts before the conclusion of 2020, and while it’s unclear
if that figure has been reached, notably names such as Yoel Romero
and Anthony
are no longer with the Las Vegas-based organization.

If Condit doesn’t deliver a victory on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, it’s
possible the UFC could elect to part ways with the former interim
welterweight champion, who will turn 37 in April. If that is the
case, the New Mexico native seems to be willing to at least
consider a change in promotion.

“I think so. I’d consider it. I love what I do,” he said. “If I
could still get out there and get paid to fight people, I think I’d
entertain the idea of fighting for another organization.”

With just win in his last six Octagon appearances, the perception
is that Condit’s back is against the wall at UFC on ABC 1. However,
Condit believes that’s always the case in this sport.

“I think that’s how the fight game is. All of this is a gamble,”
Condit said. “We get to ante up against another guy and put
everything on the line, and winner takes all. That’s the beauty of
it. That’s the thrill of all this s—t. Even more so when you’re up
for a new contract.”
