“Right now he’s just taking his time and thinking about it,” Kawa said to Chael Sonnen about Condit back in 2016. “He’s going to review it, see how he feels and see’s whether or not he wakes up and stuff is going on. He’ll go get his head checked and see if his brain is perfectly fine, normal, and then maybe he may say I want one more fight.”
