After initially declaring that perhaps his time had passed in the world of mixed marital arts (MMA) after suffering his fourth straight defeat at the hands of Alex Oliveira at UFC on FOX 29 last month, it seems Carlos Condit has turned the hourglass over one more time.

According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto — via statement from First Round Management — ‘‘The Natural Born Killer” insists he will come back for at least one more fight, and he prefers to do it sometime in November or December.

While no potential opponent was given, Condit isn’t content with leaving the sport on four straight defeats. The former interim Welterweight titleholder hasn’t tasted victory since 2015 after he knocked out Thiago Alves. What followed were tough losses to Robbie Lawler, Demian Maia, Neil Magny and then “Cowboy.”

Condit (33) is currently not ranked in the top 15, which means he likely won’t be paired up against someone who is. But whoever he gets, it’s safe to say there will be blood.
