Carlos Condit has been deprived of an epic clash with a fellow fan-favourite and veteran after Matt Brown suffered a knee injury only two weeks out. Fortunately, Alex Oliveira has stepped up to fill the void.

Condit is desperate for a win. He has lost his last three and six of his eight fights and in the majority of these he came up agonisingly short against the very best of the welterweight division. Amongst these defeats were five-round wars with the likes of Georges St Pierre, Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler.

He needs to rejuvenate the confidence that made him a decorated legend of the sport as he is taking on a very dangerous striker and natural finisher who although is coming off a TKO loss, endured a war and ‘Fight of the Night’ with Yancy Medeiros.


On paper, this fight produces fireworks and is likely to stay on the feet. We should fully expect Oliveira to threaten on the feet and be wary of the counter but Condit has to put his form behind him to display the incredible combinations and movement that has enabled him to dismantle some of the best fighters in the world.

We saw glimpses of this in his last fight with Neil Magny and if he builds on that performance he should walk away with the win.

Winner: Condit via Decision
