Mixed Martial Arts Career
Condit competed in numerous promotions before signing with the WEC, some of which are Rumble on the Rock and Pancrase. While competing in these other promotions, Condit fought some better known fighters like Frank Trigg and Jake Shields.
After the impressive victory, Condit was chosen to fight UFC and WEC veteran John Alessio for the vacant WEC Welterweight Championship. Condit defeated Alessio by Rear Naked Choke at the end of the second round.
Condit would then defend the title against Brock Larson at WEC 29 and Carlo Prater at WEC 32, defeating both by submission in the first round. Condit's final defense would be against Hiromitsu Miura at WEC 35. The fight would end via TKO in the fourth round, winning Fight of the Night Honors, which meant that Condit would be the last ever WEC Welterweight Champion after the UFC dissolved the title and division. Condit's record in the WEC would end at a perfect 5-0.
His UFC debut took place at UFC Fight Night 18 against Danish kickboxer Martin Kampmann. The fight would be Kampmann's second fight as a welterweight, as he had been competing in the UFC's middleweight division. The two battled it out for three rounds, showing some great displays of Muay Thai kickboxing as well as some impressive grappling. Kampmann ended up winning the fight with a split decision victory over Condit.
Condit was expected to return to the UFC against Chris Lytle at UFC Fight Night 19, but an injury forced Lytle off the card. Lytle was replaced by Jake Ellenberger, who would be making his UFC debut. Condit was in trouble early in the first round as Ellenberger rocked him badly two times with big right hands, but Condit kept his composure and went on to win the next two rounds to take a split decision.
- "I was pretty rocked," Condit admitted to MMAjunkie, when asked about his early trouble in the first round. "I was probably in a heap of trouble, but I kind of just pulled through. I was there mentally, but for a second my vision in my left eye was a little bit fuzzy."
It was learned around September 2009 that Condit had moved back to New Mexico and had begun training at Greg Jackson's MMA, leaving Tempe, Arizona and Arizona Combat Sports, where he had trained most of his career. There was some controversy with the move, as there had been rumors of a feud between Condit and Greg Jackson's main-stay Donald Cerrone, that began when Cerrone fought Condit's former training partner Jamie Varner for the WEC Lightweight Championship. According to Condit, he believes it to be "water under the bridge." Another interesting aspect of the move, is the fact that he will now be training alongside current UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre.
- "I want to get back to being a very strategic fighter and stick to my game plans more," Condit said. "I know that Greg comes up with really good gameplans, so I want to take advantage of that."
He finally returned to action at UFC 115: Liddell vs. Franklin against former King of the Cage (KOTC) Lightweight Champion Rory MacDonald. Though it looked as if MacDonald was in complete control for the first two rounds, Condit came alive in the third round. After an opening flurry from MacDonald, Condit was the one who took top position and began to tee off. Several of the shots connected flush, and MacDonald appeared to be completely fatigued. The action returned to the feet briefly, but Condit brought it back down and resumed the punishment. MacDonald rolled and defended and tried to make it through the final round, but Condit continued the pressure. As the 10-second warning sounded, the arena felt a sense of relief, but referee Kevin Dornan felt the youngster had taken enough abuse and waved the fight off with just seven seconds remaining. Condit was handed the win by TKO (Punches) at 4:53 of the third frame, and the two fighters won the Fight of the Night Honors.
His father, Brian Condit, is the Chief of Staff for New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, the former Democratic Presidential Candidate. His mother, Camille Prevost, is a registered nurse who specializes in Obstetrics and resides in Vancouver, WA.
Carlos has a fiancée. The couple is expecting their first child in March 2010.
