Third time’s the charm? Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown booked for UFC Fight Night on Jan. 30

For the third time, Carlos Condit and Matt Brown have a dance date.

Former interim welterweight champion Condit (31-13 MMA, 8-9 UFC) is set to meet Brown (22-17 MMA, 15-11 UFC) at the UFC’s Jan. 30 event. The card doesn’t have a location or broadcast details yet.

MMA Junkie confirmed the matchup with a person with knowledge of the booking. The person requested anonymity since the UFC has yet to make a formal announcement. The news first was reported by

Condit and Brown first were booked for UFC on FOX 9 in December 2013, but Brown was forced out with an injury. In April 2018, they tried again at UFC on FOX 29, but again Brown was pulled with a torn ACL.

In October, Condit snapped a five-fight skid when he took a unanimous decision from Court McGee. Prior to that, he had gone more than five years without a win with losses to Robbie Lawler in a title fight, Demian Maia, Neil Magny, Alex Oliveira and Michael Chiesa.

Brown will be looking to get back on track after a May knockout loss to Miguel Baeza. Prior to that, he had two straight knockout wins over Diego Sanchez and Ben Saunders.

Combined, Condit and Brown add up to a pair of prolific finishers. Condit has 28 of his 31 career wins by stoppage – a clip of better than 90 percent. And Brown has 22 of his 24 wins by stoppage for 92 percent.

With the addition, the UFC’s Jan. 30 card now includes:

  • Viviane Araujo vs. Roxanne Modafferi
  • Vinicius Moreira vs. Ike Villanueva
  • Ode Osbourne vs. Jerome Rivera
  • Zarrukh Adashev vs. Jeffrey Molina
  • Matt Brown vs. Carlos Condit
