Prepare For Battle: Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown Set For UFC On FOX 9

Not to be outdone by its big brother UFC 168, UFC On FOX 9 has added one of the most talked-about and anticipated fights to the Dec 14 card. Carlos Condit will square off with surging Welterweight Matt “The Immortal” Brown in what could be one of the most intense slugfests available in all of MMA. Fox Sports revealed the exciting news earlier today.

Condit was last seen in the main event of UFC Fight Night 27 from Indianapolis, where he dispatched Martin Kampmann with a spectacular fourth round TKO stoppage. The win ended a snide for Condit, who had lost his two previous bouts to champion Georges St. Pierre and current title challenger Johny Hendricks.

Brown, the winner of six straight bouts, recently knocked Mike Pyle out with a vicious flurry at UFC Fight Night 26. He was rumored to be facing off with final Strikeforce Welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine, but the Belgian revealed that he is still not ready to make his Octagon debut due to injury.

Now Brown has a much higher profile bout on his hands. “The Immortal” has been saying that he believes he is the one to finally beat GSP, and if he beats Condit, he may just get a chance at the belt. Same with “The Natural Born Killer.” The term ‘pivotal bout’ gets thrown around a lot in MMA, but this fight is the true definition of that phrase.

It’s going to be war when Condit and Brown square off in Sacramento, and on paper, it’s one of the most excited bouts of the year. Whose momentum will be derailed when these two heavy hitters take to the Octagon this December?

    Brown will never get in Condit's pocket in order to unleash those bombs. Condit by boring UD.

    Glad to see Condit got the fight that he was seeking.

    Good luck to Matt Brown, he's going to need it.

    This is where Matt Brown (and everyone else on the MB hype train) realizes that he is good, but not that good…..

    No doubt about that. I think Condit wins hands down, but if Brown somehow finds a way to pull it off, he deserves a title shot.

    Yeah 36 fights never been finished. Ellenberger, kampman, diaz, Hendricks, hardy, and GSP couldn't finish him so to say brown will KO him is straight crazy talk. Lost whatever marbles you had to begin with.

    dam, good to see Brown off the prelims finally but what a tough fight awaits. Wouldt say its an easy fight for either and i dont think a clear winner could be said, it most depends on who comes in more ready and wants it more this is what Brown needs to finally get close to a shot, i like both guys it would **** to see Brown lose or Condit..i'll go with the double KO on this one
