Heading into September, fight fans should be excited because these next four months will feature some of the best MMA action fans could ask for. Between numerous grudge matches, title fights and number one contender bouts the end of 2015 is going to be spectacular. But there is one bout that, for some unknown reason, just isn’t getting the attention that it deserves. While everyone is busy talking about Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm, the UFC welterweight title bout between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit is receiving almost no attention.

Honestly, it’s difficult to understand why because Lawler is coming off of the most impressive performance of his career and easily the fight of the year, if not the fight of the decade. At UFC 189, Lawler and challenger, Rory MacDonald, went to war in a back and forth battle of attrition that saw Lawler score a fifth round TKO to defend his welterweight title.

This matchup against Condit has the potential to be an even more entertaining bout – if that is even possible. The old adage of “Styles makes fights” will absolutely hold true in UFC 193’s main event between Lawler and Condit.

Both men are grizzled veterans who can’t help but put on exciting fights. Lawler and Condit both like to come forward and bring the fight to their opponents and they both have the toughness and grit to survive the physicality of an all out brawl.

Perhaps this fight is being overlooked because neither Lawler nor Condit like to run their mouths; they prefer to do their talking in the cage. But on reputation alone this fight should be receiving more attention.

Go ahead and make a note of it now. Of all the fights remaining this calendar year, Lawler vs. Condit will be the very best; and it won’t even be close.
