Carlos Condit will welcome Michael Chiesa to Welterweight at UFC 232

Carlos Condit will welcome Michael Chiesa to Welterweight at UFC 232

Michael Chiesa will be moving up to Welterweight from Lightweight

Michael Chiesa is moving on up, like George and Weezy. Well, maybe not to a deluxe apartment in the sky, but certainly to the Welterweight division. There to welcome him will be Carlos Condit and the results should be interesting. Chiesa has been in the news more recently for a lawsuit filed against Conor McGregor, but he’s headed back to the Octagon.

Chiesa missed weight for his last fight, a loss to Anthony Pettis and said at the time he was done with making Lightweight. People felt it might have been frustration talking, but it seems he was serious and makes the move to 170 to face Condit.

Carlos Condit needs a win here, as he’s lost four in a row and five of his last six. The Natural Born Killer needs a win, and he’ll likely look to keep the action on their feet against Chiesa. The UFC posted the official news of this fight via Twitter. It’s been rumored for weeks, but it’s finally official.
