    He looked better than his two previous fights, but his chin is gone....that Lawler fight ruined both of them. I don't think he's done....

    He's been really unlucky, to be honest. Yes, he is past his prime, but I also think he was robbed against Lawler, and that he was handily winning against Oliveira, and could win that fight in a rematch.

    Alas, his takedown defense is still atrocious...

    He lost better than his last few fights, I dunno. Think he can pull an Arlovski?

    He either needs to retire or fight someone with no ground game. He's always been weak to takedowns but his overall ground game has been garbage recently. Also this seems to confirm he went out.

    Yeah, Cruz is a complete joke. I really don't understand all the people on here who love his "analysis."

    Damn, just realized Condit is 2-7 in his last 9 fights...

    Some of them are due to freak injury or split decision, but and It's not like he's ever been KO'd, but man, I gotta ask: is it time for him to retire?

    I was talking about DC. I love Cruz’s analysis but he has to have the right guy in the booth with him. Dc is the worst.

    he should fight below top 10, I dont like to see true warriors ending their careers by feeding themselves to younger fighters from an improved generation

    I fucking love that dude. He is one of the greats in my mind. He is everything i want to see when watching fights. One of the GOAT finishers in mma. If the UFC tries to low ball him after loosing 4 in a row i hope he goes to Rizin. Imagine Condit having stomps and soccer kicks to use once again.. also he is past his prime but he could easily be the big fish there and japanese crowd would quickly rally behind him. Maybe Rizin could make a ww tournament for him or offer him couple of kickboxing fights also. Endless possibilities for him there

    I love Condit and am thankful for all he brought to the cage. If it is his time to retire then I wish him all the best. He owes the mma world nothing. True warrior.

    One thing he still has going is his chin is still intact and if he retires will be one of the few, if any, greats to leave without having his chin cracked.

    Always been a fan. Thank you Carlos.

    He needs to fight matt brown in a elbow war for the ages, then they both can retire and everyone will be happy.

    He still gets decent pay, make 110k and probably 30k Reebok.

    Perfect gif. I cried manly tears when he lost to Lawler (but he won, he did!) and again with his loses since. Great career and a top bloke.

    In fighting, it's all about fight years. Not age. He's been in the game 7 years longer than DC (For example). One you pass a decade of fighting (And he's long past a decade) - You're always going to struggle.

    Pussy.





    Just joking! Condit is and has always been a warrior. He’s also super intelligent. I could imagine him being an excellent pundit- he’s so lucid and coherent when he talks about the fight game. And his ‘spinning shit’ post Diaz fight moment has entered the pantheon of classic UFC moments.
