Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown set for UFC on FOX 9

Two of the UFC’s most exciting welterweight fighters will clash at UFC on FOX 9 this December, as UFC officials recently announced that Carlos Condit (29-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) and Matt Brown (18-11 MMA, 11-5 UFC) have agreed to square off in Sacramento.

Former UFC interim-welterweight champion, Carlos Condit, most recently fought in the headlining bout of “UFC Fight Night 27,” where he was able to avenge his previous loss to Martin Kampmann, earning a fourth-round TKO victory over “The Hitman”.

Prior to that, “The Natural Born Killer” had suffered back-to-back losses for the 1st time in his UFC career. Those losses, both of which came via judges decision, were suffered to current welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154 and #1 contender Johny Hendricks at UFC 158 respectively.

Once viewed as a “Gatekeeper” for the 170-pound division, Matt Brown has been on an absolute tear as of late. “The Immortal” one has strung together six-straight wins, five of which have come by form of KO or TKO. Brown most recently KO’d Mike Pyle in just 30 seconds at the “UFC Fight Night 26″ event in Boston.

During his current win streak, Matt Brown holds victories over, Jordan Mein, Mike Swick, Luis Ramos, Stephen Thompson and Chris Cope.

UFC on FOX 9 goes down December 14 live from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. The event is headlined by a lightweight title fight between current champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis and challenger Josh Thomson.

    my first thought was that this is gonna be a dogfight, but then i remembered condit’s fight with diaz, which is how i think its gonna play out. i hope the former happens tho lol

  2. Finally giving brown a top 5 says:

    Awesome they are finally giving brown a good top 5 fighter. I think this could end up being an all out brawl if the right matt and carlos come into the ring.

  3. doc says:

    YES!!!!

    this is gonna be a war. No matter what Condit does I believe that Matt Brown will force him to fight and duke it out. FOTN right here.

    Matt Brown wants that belt and he will fight king kong to get it.

    Looking forward to this!

  4. WhosThatGirl says:

    Matt who? Hamill, Serra, or Hughes? Sounds like the new gatekeeper is Condit.

  5. Dddddddddd says:

    This is a really good match. If Brown can avoid the counters and submissions he might end up with a title shot. I see this being a decision but I hope it’s not.

  6. Slim Charles says:

    great scrapppp either way Matt Brown is going to go out on his shield and will be exciting action!!! kind of rooting for brown on this to keep his cinderella story going.
