(Carlos Condit fights Martin Kampmann during UFC Fight NIght 27)

Thiago Alves’ (21-9) 2014 return saw a fight of the night bonus and performance of the night bonus with wins over Jordan Mein and Seth Baczynski. Much of 2012-2013 was marred for Alves due to injury, but with a return to competition he appears to be on the mend. Alves’ matchup with Condit makes a lot of logistical sense with both coming back from long layoffs from competition.

Carlos Condit has been out of competition for over a year after he tore his ACL and meniscus against Tyron Woodley at UFC 171. The 2nd round TKO loss was the first Condit ever suffered in his career, bringing “The Natural Born Killer” to 1-3 in his last 4 fights. They say it about every division in the UFC, but welterweight competitors have no room for loss on the way to the top of the heap. The race for Robbie Lawler’s newly acquired title is neck and neck with every welterweight in the division.

Also announced on the night’s card is a women’s strawweight bout between Juliana Lima (7-2) and Jessica Penne (12-2). See Carlos Condit vs. Thiago Alves in the main event of UFC Fight Night 67 on May 30th. Do you think “The Natural Born Killer” will be successful against Alves after a long injury layoff? Will Alves emerge from fight night as a contender?
