Carlos Condit gets next welterweight title fight with win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 171

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

"Ares" isn't going to like this one bit.

Sorry, Rory MacDonald, but you're going to have to win at least one more fight before you get your much-desired welterweight title fight.

That's because Carlos Condit is the next man up to get a crack at the new champ who will be crowned in the main event of UFC 171 when Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler battle for the vacant crown this weekend (March 15, 2014) in Dallas, Texas.

That is, of course, if "The Natural Born Killer" can get through Tyron Woodley in co-headlining bout in "Big D."

UFCONFOX confirmed the news via Twitter:

A win over "T-Wood" in "Big-D" would give Carlos his second straight since dropping back-to-back decision losses to former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154 and Johny Hendricks at UFC 158.

As for MacDonald, he believes his win over Demian Maia at UFC 170 last month was more than good enough to put him at the top of the welterweight ladder. This, despite the fact that he was dominated by the aforementioned Robbie Lawler four months ago at UFC 167.

Maybe it was that bag of weed talking.

But before Condit can look forward to a potential third UFC title fight, he has his hands more than full as he battles a man who would love nothing more than to inch himself a bit closer to a shot at the crown, as well.

What say you, Maniacs, any of you have a problem with this decision?
