Carlos Condit UFC

Tom Szczerbowski-USA Today Sports

UFC 158 showcases a lot of intriguing welterweight bouts between elite fighters, and one bout that has garnered a lot of attention is the bout between Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit.  Both of these fighters are right at the top of the division, and Dana White has confirmed that the winner of this bout will be next in line for the title.

At the UFC 158 Pre-Fight Press Conference, White said, “Yeah I actually like this fight with Carlos Condit, the guy who comes out of this fight the winner is definitely the number one contender.”

This is huge news for both of these fighters that might actually make them fight harder, since they will get the chance to take home UFC gold if they come out victorious Saturday night. Hendricks has been campaigning for a title shot against Georges ever since he knocked Jon Fitch in the first round.  Despite Hendricks looking dominant at welterweight, Georges elected to fight Nick Diaz for this Saturday’s main event.

Carlos Condit is coming off a championship fight against GSP, showcasing an excellent striking attack that at one point sent GSP to the canvas.  A few more adjustments and he might be able to take home UFC gold.  First things first, however, as he will have to get past the one-punch knockout artist in Hendricks.

Fans should expect fireworks from these two, and this bout has both Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night written all over it.  Will Hendricks land his power left hook and become the number one contender or will Carlos prove to be too dynamic on the feet and gain another title shot?  Keep it locked here for the latest UFC 158 coverage!

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
