UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler to Defend Title against Carlos Condit at MGM Grand Garden Arena Jan. 2
Two of the most electrifying strikers in the sport will ring in the New Year as welterweight champion Robbie Lawler looks to make a second successful title defense against fourth-ranked Carlos Condit on Saturday, Jan. 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena (Pictured: Robbie Lawler – Photo credit Getty/Zuffa LLC)

In a division that has become known for its epic title fights in recent years, we have seen all out battles between the likes of Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks, Hendricks and Lawler (twice) and most recently, an all-time great between Lawler and Rory MacDonald. With more than 30 knockout victories between the two, Lawler and Condit are primed to put on another welterweight title fight for the history books.

  • Lawler (26-10, 1 NC, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) is coming off one of the greatest fights in mixed martial arts history, a knockout victory over top-ranked MacDonald at UFC189, and looks to keep the momentum going when he clashes with Condit. Since returning to the Octagon in 2013, “Ruthless” has amassed a 7-1 record that includes knockout victories over MacDonald, Jake Ellenberger and Josh Koscheck. Currently the sixth-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world, a win over Condit could place Lawler amongst the all-time greats at 170 pounds.

  • Condit (30-8, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.), the former UFC interim welterweight champion and the last WEC welterweight champion, is no stranger to high profile fights, having gone to the championship rounds with the likes of St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, and successfully defending the WEC belt three times. “The Natural Born Killer” has finished 27 of his 30 pro victories – 14 by way of submission – showing that the 31-year-old known for his devastating striking has the ability to finish the fight wherever the fight goes.
