Carlos Condit vs. Chris Lytle at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada

Former WEC welterweight champion, Carlos Condit and all-out veteran, Chris Lytle will meet in what has fight of the night written all over it at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Superbowl weekend on Februasry 5th, 2011.

This according to Sportsnet.ca:

A welterweight slugfest is brewing between UFC 170-pound gun-slingers Carlos “The Natural Born Killer” Condit and Chris “Lights Out” Lytle.

A source close to the bout has informed me that the two veterans are slated to face one another at UFC 126: Silva vs. Belfort at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Condit is on a three fight winning streak since losing to a slow start three round split decision loss to Martin Kampmann. Wins over Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald and Dan Hardy have put him within inches of a UFC title shot. Lytle who is 36 years old remains one of the most exciting fighters putting together a four fight winning streal himself, defeating Kevin Burns, Brian Foster, Matt Brown and most recently Matt Serra via unanimous decision at UFC 119.
