The Natural Born Killer, Carlos Condit, Retires From MMA
Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit has retired.
Condit, nicknamed “The Natural Born Killer,” hung up his gloves from MMA at the age of 37, his manager of First Round Management Malki Kawa confirmed Thursday.
Condit (32-14) won the welterweight title fight at UFC 143. He was supposed to share the octagon with Josh Koscheck, but he was forced to be out from the title fight because of a knee injury, and well-known Nick Diaz replaced him.
Condit defeated the Diaz brother via unanimous decision, with the judge’s scorecard 48–47, 49–46, and 49–46.
After becoming welterweight champion, Condit faced another living legend, Georges St-Pierre, and became the only second man who managed to drop St-Pierre. However, he could not finish that fight earlier and suffered a loss via unanimous decision.
At the end of his career, he suffered five losses against Robbie Lawler, Demian Maia, Neil Magny, Alex Oliveira and Michael Chiesa.
Still, he managed to come back and earned two consecutive victories against Court McGee and Matt Brown.
The last time he fought was at UFC 264 where he suffered a loss against Max Griffin via unanimous decision.
