Condit needs to go to Invicta

Agreed. He's a true can ever since he started making coffee for a living
Patrick Cummings went from being a barista to being a UFC fighter, Condit is going from a UFC fighter to a barista. It makes sense having followed his career all these years.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English. I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

He is just caught in a time when most fighters are jacked and he is just some skinny guy trying to get by on skills.
Most experts claim you have to be an idiot or using the recent examples ,taking unknown tainted pills to get caught.
There are women more jacked than Carlos,he is just too weak and sort of slowish as well,he would need to spend 2-3 years working on his athleticism which is obviously too late at this point.

I might be the odd man out here but I didn't think Condit looked bad. He had some good reversals on the ground and it was actually a pretty good back-and-forth fight until the finish (I gave the first round to Carlos, actually). Condit got blasted with an upkick and subbed with a guillotine. It happens, and the fake cowboy is no slouch.
MMA is a fickle game and maybe Condit isn't a top 5 fighter any longer, but he's not a bum even if he's lost four in a row. Remember, the first loss of his current streak was a split decision against then-champ Lawler that could've gone either way.
It could be age - not just chronological age, but MMA age. He turns 34 later this month (which is young), but he's been fighting for 16 years and has undergone a number of surgeries to repair injuries sustained in fights and training.
