Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown Added to UFC on Fox 9 Card
Welterweights Carlos Condit and Matt Brown have agreed to meet on the December 14 show, taking place in Sacramento, Calif.
UFC officials confirmed the booking via Fox Sports on Wednesday.
The bout will pit two of the division's most exciting fighters against each other with possible title contention hanging in the balance.
There hasn't been a more dominant run in the UFC of late than what Brown has been able to do in his last six fights. The Ohio native has won all six bouts while stopping five of the opponents by knockout or TKO.
Brown most recently flattened former training partner Mike Pyle by first round knockout in just 29-seconds at UFC Fight Night 26 in Boston. His upcoming bout scheduled for UFC on Fox 9 will put Brown on free television for the fifth time in a row.
UFC president Dana White even joked recently calling Brown 'Mr. Fox' for his tendency to not only compete on the televised cards, but also by putting on blistering performances like the ones he's had lately.
Hoping to stop Brown's momentum will be former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit, fresh off a win over Martin Kampmann in his last fight.
Condit actually headed into the rematch with Kampmann on a two-fight skid after losing to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and current top contender Johny Hendricks in back-to-back fights.
The former champion wasted no time getting back on track, however, as he punished Kampmann over the course of their main event battle before finally putting him away in the fourth round.
Now Condit will look to jump back into the title picture when he takes on Brown in what should be one of the most highly anticipated battles of the entire year.
Brown has gone to decision only three times in his 29 fight career, while Condit has finished 27 opponents out of his 29 career wins.
The welterweight showdown is expected to occupy a main card slot on the show headlined by lightweight champion Anthony Pettis defending his belt against Josh Thomson.
