There was a time not long ago when many thought former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit was done fighting.

But today, Condit (30-10 MMA, 7-6 UFC) emerged on Twitter to ask UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby for a fight.

“Yo! @seanshelby,” Condit wrote. “What’s up big guy…? I’m wanting to fight in December or January… what say you!?”

Condit, 33, last was seen in the octagon 13 months ago at UFC on FOX 21. He hoped to get back into title contention with a win over Demain Maia. Instead, he wound up tapping to the Brazilian submission ace.

The loss left Condit 2-5 in his past seven appearances, with two of his setbacks coming in title bouts. Condit had already pondered retirement after falling short against champ Robbie Lawler in a nail-biter at UFC 195.

After the Maia loss, Condit wondered if he had what it took to compete at the highest level. But he shied away from making any definitive statements about his future. Then Condit retreated from the spotlight and mostly kept quiet about his life. Speculation about a career as a personal trainer was stoked by a post on social media.

Now, it appears “The Natural Born Killer” is ready to get back in the mix. And his return comes at an interesting time.

Three years ago, Condit took on current champion Tyron Woodley (18-3-1 MMA, 8-2-1 UFC) in a bout with title implications. After getting rocked in the first round, Condit suffered a knee injury that prematurely ended the fight.

Undoubtedly, Condit eyes a shot at UFC gold so he can rematch Woodley. The question now is who will welcome him back to the octagon.
