UFC 115: Carlos Condit vs Rory MacDonald in the works for June 12

Condit-macdonald_medium
Former WEC welterweight champion, Carlos Condit (24-5), is in talks to take on King of the Cage star Rory MacDonald (10-0), at UFC 115 from the General Motors Place in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, on June 12.

MMAmania.com (www.mmamania.com) learned of the pending match up earlier today.

Condit recently redeemed himself after suffering his first loss in nearly three years, a competitive split decision to top 170-pound contender, Martin Kampmann, at UFC Fight Night 18 back in April. The "Natural Born Killer" was able to somehow survive a brutal first round onslaught dished out by Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 19 last month to storm back and capture a hard-fought split decision.

The win over Ellenberger was more than likely tougher than Condit, as well as most fans, thought it would be ... especially after his undefeated (5-0) and dominating run with Zuffa's sister promotion.

The rough waters continued when he was booked opposite Paul "Semtex" Daley for UFC 108; however, Condit suffered a hand laceration and was forced to withdraw from the Jan. 2 bout.

Now he's patched up and set to return -- but don't expect a very warm welcome from MacDonald.

The undefeated Canadian made a mockery of Michael Guymon in his UFC debut earlier this month at Fight Night 20 in Fairfax, submitting "The Joker" in the first round via textbook armbar.

MacDonald’s professional career began in 2005 when he debuted with a submission win for Extreme Fighting Challenge. The Toshido Fighting Arts Academy phenom also held the KOTC lightweight belt before making the move to welterweight and has finished all ten of his victims by way of (T)KO or submission.

Will Condit be number eleven?

UFC 115 is expected to feature the third (and hopefully final ) dance between former light heavyweight champions Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, fresh off their coaching gigs at The Ultimate Fighter 11.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for future updates on this still-developing fight card.
