Carlos Condit Shares Surprisingly Candid Thoughts About Getting Choked Out at UFC on Fox 29 (Instagram)

Carlos Condit

UFC welterweight Carlos Condit lost to Alex Oliveira via a second-round guillotine at UFC on Fox 29. Condit, 33, has now lost four fights in a row and seven of his last nine. So naturally lots of people are wondering whether that might have been his last fight—including Condit himself.

On Tuesday the UFC veteran posted a photo of his bloodied self sitting on the mat after getting choked out by Oliveira. And along with the photo he posted a lengthy reflection about the loss, his passion for MMA, and what the future holds for him.

Take a look:

 

Post choke out, where the fuck am I , WTF happened, feeling kinda warm and fuzzy , hope I didn’t just piss my shorts on live TV , thousand yard stare. I’ve posted plenty of pictures looking like a Badass. Triumphant and powerful… But here’s the flip side, crumpled and weak in defeat. Rough day at the office 😐 Fuck it though, I had fun. I trained my ass off and I came to fight. This is what leaving it all out there looked like on Saturday. Much respect to my opponent and his team. Thank you for taking the fight on short notice. Congratulations and best of luck in the future. I don’t know what’s next guys… I still love this game, and most days I still feel that fire, I absolutely love what it do, but maybe my time has passed. I don’t know the answer. this is what I know, this is my passion. I will never stop training, and If that leads me back to the the octagon, you know I’ll try to make it bloody for ya. Right now I’m looking forward to summer shenanigans with my sons and to expanding @hundredhandscoffee .

The UFC is so full of bluster. It’s a breath of fresh air to hear a fighter speak so candidly.

Good luck to the “Natural Born Killer” in whatever is next for him.
