Max Griffin is ready to keep his winning streak going against a former UFC champion.
MMA Junkie’s Farah Hannoun and John Morgan have reported that the UFC wants to book Griffin vs. former interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit for UFC 264 on July 10 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, the UFC hasn’t officially announced the fight is happening yet.
Griffin is on a two-fight win streak, with both wins being by knockout. Griffin’s last win was against Kenan Song at UFC on ESPN 21 in March. The win helped Griffin earn his first Performance of the Night Bonus and get the attention of the UFC as a contender in the welterweight division. In an interview with Griffin, we talked about possible opponents after the Song fight, and he mentioned wanting to fight ranked welterweight contenders, Geoff Neal or Robbie Lawler. It’s unclear why those fights didn’t materialize, but Griffin will look to make a statement against Condit.
Condit will look to keep his two-fight winning streak alive as well. Condit’s last win was against Matt Brown by unanimous decision at UFC on ABC 1 in January. The win was supposed to be Condit’s last fight of his UFC contract, and he seemed unsure in the post-fight interview with the media that he’d resign. It hasn’t been publicized when the UFC has signed Condit to a new deal. Regardless, Condit will look to continue his run in the UFC and get back into being a championship contender again.
