Condit looking at retirement after loss to Lawler
“The Natural Born Killer” was unable to capture UFC gold after losing to champion Robbie Lawler via a razor-thin split decision verdict. It was a barnburner that many believed Condit should have won.
During the post-fight press conference, a visibly disappointed Condit showed up, where he also announced the possibility of him hanging up his gloves for good.
“I came up short tonight. I don't know,” Condit said. “It was, tonight was kind of a do-or-die moment for my career and I was all in. if I got that strap, I was going to keep fighting.”
“If I didn't, like I didn't, I have to see if I can continue to do this.
Condit did clarify that his decision was mainly driven by his performance on Saturday night.
"It's not really an emotional thing. I'm not dejected. I don't know. I have to evaluate that there's the possibility that was my last one. We'll see."
At 31 years of age, Carlos Condit has been through a good number of wars throughout his almost 16-year professional MMA career. He currently holds a record of 30-9, with 18 victories by knockout.
