Carlos Condit vs Robbie Lawler Reportedly Eyed For Later in Year

According to unconfirmed reports, the UFC is planning on giving the next Welterweight title shot to Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit.

The current rumor that is making the rounds is that the UFC is planning on putting on two high profile Welterweight fights in December. They would be:

Carlos Condit vs Robbie Lawler
Tyron Woodley vs Johny Hendricks

The winner of Woodley vs Hendricks, it is assumed, would be getting the next shot at the Welterweight title.

As mentioned, nothing has been confirmed by the UFC as of yet.

According to the reports, the UFC is eyeing a December card in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for these two Welterweight tilts. UFC President Dana White famously promised to "make up" for the unbelievably bad card that was UFC 149, which was the UFC's first ever visit to Calgary. The card was destroyed by injuries and ended up underperforming even the lowest of expectations.

A card that was headlined by Condit vs Lawler and Woodley vs Hendricks would certainly qualify as a good "make up", as both fights should feature exquisite amounts of violence and blood. Carlos Condit and Robbie Lawler are two of the most entertaining brawlers in the UFC's Welterweight division, while both Woodley and Hendricks are capable of highly entertaining tilts as well.

Robbie Lawler is coming off of an incredibly violent title defense against Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 earlier this month, while Carlos Condit made a successful return after a prolonged injury rehab by beating Thiago Alves. Carlos Condit is the former interim Welterweight champion and famously fought Georges St. Pierre for the unified title, losing in what was considered one of the most entertaining fights in the history of the UFC's Welterweight division.

There was some thought that Johny Hendricks would be getting the next shot at the Welterweight title, but it now appears as though he'll have to win one more time.
