Carlos Condit's win at UFC Fight Night 27 on Wednesday went a long way toward proving he's the best welterweight not involved in the division's next championship bout.
After losses to champion Georges St-Pierre and top contender Johny Hendricks, Condit made a statement with a fourth-round stoppage of Martin Kampmann. In doing so, Condit showed he's capable of beating just about any 170-pound fighter in the world.
Unfortunately, with such fresh losses to St-Pierre and Hendricks, Condit probably won't have an opportunity to move upward any time soon.
While he awaits an event that could change that, here is who Condit and the rest of the UFC Fight Night 27 competitors should meet next.
