Matt Brown Would End Semi-Retirement For Carlos Condit Fight

MMA

Matt Brown semi-retired from MMA competition after defeating UFC Ultimate Fighter 1 winner Diego Sanchez at UFC Fight Night Norfolk.

If there was a bout that could lure Brown from semi-retirement, it would be against former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit.

“Maybe it’s time for me and him to lock horns,” said Brown on Fight Society. “I’d love to. I’ve got so much respect for him. Of course, I would love to. Everybody would want to see that fight. It was supposed to happen before. We’ll see what happens. That’s definitely one people would want to see no matter what. It would be a fight for the ages. Now it would certainly be a fight that would make me want to come out of semi-retirement. I haven’t made any decisions on anything. That would be one that would probably wake me up and get me out of bed.”

Condit and Brown were supposed to meet once before at UFC On Fox 9, but an injury caused Brown to pull out of the encounter.

Assuming the bout does come together down the line, one thing Brown wants is for it to be a five round encounter.

“We’d definitely have to go five,” said Brown. “We’ll see what happens. Maybe Sean Shelby will be listening in and give me a call next week.”

The former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion just returned to action at UFC 219, suffering a decision loss to Neil Magny.
