February 19, 2015 11:22 am by Chris Taylor

A welterweight bout between former interim champion Carlos Condit (29-8 MMA) and former title challenger Thiago Alves (21-9 MMA) is being discussed for a possible summer match-up.

The potential fight, which “UFC Tonight’s” Ariel Helwani discussed as a possibility on Wednesday’s new episode, could find a spot on the UFC’s schedule in late May or early June.

Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit has been out of action since March of 2014, this after he suffered a torn ACL and meniscus during his fight with Tyron Woodley at UFC 171. Prior to the setback, the “Natural Born Killer” defeated Martin Kampmann via fourth-round TKO at ‘UFC Fight Night 27’ in August of 2013.

Meanwhile, Thiago Alves was most recently seen in action at last month’s UFC 183 event in Las Vegas, where he scored a thrilling come from behind victory over rising star Jordan Mein. The victory marked “Pitbull’s” second in a row, as he had previously defeated Seth Baczynski at the UFC on FOX 11 event in 2014.

The UFC currently has events slated for May 23 (UFC 187 card), May 30 (UFC Fight Night 67), June 6 (UFC Fight Night 68), June 13 (UFC 188) and June 20 (UFC Fight Night 69). So there are a lot of options regarding an event for this potential welterweight showdown.
