UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit needs to fight Jake Ellenberger as soon as possible.

The future of the entire welterweight division is at stake!

If Condit doesn’t fight Ellenberger soon, it’ll impact the careers of several fighters by making them miss out on big contendership matches while they’re in their primes. It’ll also slow the division down, which will mean that there will be less interest in the 170-pound weight class.

This would be detrimental since UFC welterweight champion Georges St.Pierre had fans kicking and screaming that the Canadian was “boring” as well as the fact that the controversial but still popular Nick Diaz has “retired” from MMA competition.
