Matt Brown: Fight with Carlos Condit ‘would make me want to come out of semi-retirement’

In November, welterweight fan-favorite Matt Brown fought what he declared as his retirement fight against fellow TUF alum Diego Sanchez. “The Immortal” ended up winning via a vicious elbow knockout in the first round, which came along with a $50,000 bonus for Performance of the Night.

Even before the fight, the 36-year-old UFC veteran was already on the fence about calling it quits. In a recent interview on the Fight Society Podcast, Brown says he is now thinking about resuming his career if he would be given the chance to fight the former interim champion,Carlos Condit.

“Maybe it’s time for me and him to lock horns,” Brown said (transcript via MMA NYTT). “I’d love to [fight him]. I’ve got so much respect for him. Of course, I’d 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 but that would be one that would probably wake me up and get me out of bed.”

Condit is coming off a unanimous decision loss courtesy of Neil Magny at UFC 219 over the weekend in Las Vegas, marking his third straight defeat.
