UFC 219 Predictions – Carlos Condit Vs. Neil Magny

Carlos Condit is a real joy to watch for the fans. In terms of pure entertainment value, they don’t come much better than Condit. He is quick, exciting, takes risks and can really make fights very interesting for the fans. His career has been decorated with fight after fight that have acquired the status of “must watch”and irrespective of whether he is fighting an established champion or a new comer, you can expect Condit to deliver in terms of providing for a fight which is worth watching.

However, Condit’s impulsiveness maybe a bit subdued this time around considering that he is coming back from almost a year long hiatus. Condit is actually making a comeback from retirement with this fight. His recent record prior to the retirement decision was not that great either, he accumulated five losses in seven fights and the losses were more than just losses, he did pay the price in terms of physical injury. Age is not exactly on his side either, at 33 years old, his career has seen ups and downs.

UFC fight night 219 will be his 41st professional MMA bout and that is excluding fights in professional boxing and kick boxing. How Condit will perform in this fight is really a toss up to say the least. Will he be himself or just a shadow of himself? His opponent, Magny, is someone that has a acquired a lot of skills over the course of his career and is a strategic fighter.

Considering that Condit will be a bit rusty, we are going to have to side with Magny for our prediction.
