Michael Chiesa moves up to welterweight as the cut down to lightweight was too gruelling and for his welcome to the division, he takes on the legend Carlos Condit who is desperate to avoid losing five fights in a row. Fighting top contender after top contender is the price you pay for being one of the best welterweights for a decade.

Chiesa is suffering a losing streak of his own after getting submitted by Kevin Lee and Anthony Pettis. Those were tough defeats especially as grappling is his strength, but cutting down to the stature of a scarecrow compromised his performance and he is expected to come in heavier and more energised which is a must against Condit.


Condit is accomplished on the ground with 13 submissions under his belt but that said, Chiesa’s game plan will be to take him down and look for a finish. This is partly because he is phenomenal on the mat but also because he has no right to stand with Condit.

Despite the losing streak, Condit will be dangerous everywhere and he will hope to keep the fight on the feet as long as possible as he has the technique to light Chiesa up at will. However, if his takedown defence doesn’t improve he will have to find a knockout to avoid a grinding decision loss.

Winner: Condit via KO/TKO
