UFC Quick Quote: Win over Carlos Condit 'changes Matt Brown's entire life'

As if Matt Brown needed more motivation ahead of his UFC on FOX 9 welterweight showdown against Carlos Condit, company president Dana White says a win over "Natural Born Killer" could be life changing for "Immortal."


"If Matt Brown beats Carlos Condit it will change his entire life man. That would be such a massive win for him. I don't know how you guys on the call feel, but I have so much respect for Condit and the fights he's had lately and the way that he's looked. A win over Carlos Condit is a big deal, it would be huge."

-- While Matt Brown proclaims he isn't afraid to take on current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and No. 1 division contender Johny Hendricks (at the same time), he has an equally difficult fight on his hands against Carlos Condit. Matt Brown vs. Carlos Condit will tango at UFC on Fox 9 on Dec. 14, 2013, in Sacramento, Calif., in a pivotal 170-pound scrap that could determine the next title contender. Even though company president Dana White stopped short of saying "The Immortal" -- who currently sits at No. 10 in the official UFC rankings and is on a six-fight win streak -- could leapfrog the rest of the division's top contenders during a recent UFC Fight Night 29 media conference call (listen to full replay here) with a win over Condit, defeating an established and proven veteran like "Natural Born Killer" would mark a "life-changing" mixed martial arts (MMA) moment. It's anyone's guess what that means exactly because Brown has to first topple the former Welterweight interim champion. And that is no easy task.
