Carlos Joseph Condit (born April 26 , 1984) is an American professional mixed martial artist (MMA) from Albuquerque, New Mexico, currently competing for the UFC.

Background and TrainingEdit

Condit formerly fought in the UFC's sister promotion, World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), where he was the final WEC welterweight champion and also competed for Pancrase. He holds notable wins over Frank Trigg, Brock Larson, and Renato Verissimo.

Condit recently changed camps and now trains at Jackson's Submission Fighting out of Albuquerque, NM. Condit is currently ranked the #10 welterweight in the world by Sherdog.

World Extreme CagefightingEdit

Condit made his debut for the WEC at WEC 25 where he defeated Kyle Jensen in the first round via submission (Rear Naked Choke). Condit's second fight would be for the vacant WEC Welterweight Championship against John Alessio at WEC 26. Condit would win this fight in the second round, once again, by Rear Naked Choke and became the WEC Welterweight Champion.

Condit would then defend the title against Brock Larson at WEC 29 and Carlo Prater at WEC 32, defeating both by submission in the first round. Condit's final defense would be against Hiromitsu Miura at WEC 35. The fight would end via TKO in the fourth round, winning Fight of the Night honours, which meant that Condit would be the last ever WEC Welterweight Champion after the UFC dissolved the title and division. Condit's record in the WEC would end at a perfect 5-0.

Transition to the UFCEdit

Condit would make the move to UFC after the WEC buyout and he made his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) organization, losing via split decision against Martin Kampmann at UFC Fight Night 18.

He was then scheduled to fight Chris Lytle on September 16, 2009 at UFC Fight Night 19, but Lytle had to drop out due to a knee injury. UFC newcomer Jake Ellenberger would step up to replace Lytle. Condit then defeated Ellenberger via split decision to get his first win in the UFC. Condit later had to drop out of a scheduled fight at UFC 108 against Paul Daley due to a hand injury.

He is expected to fight Rory MacDonald (fighter) at UFC 115 Vancouver, Canada.

Personal lifeEdit

His father, Brian Condit, is the Chief of Staff for New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, the former Democratic Presidential Candidate. Carlos has a fiancée.
