The UFC has announced that former WEC welterweight champion and UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit will face one-time Strikeforce welterweight title contender Tyron Woodley at UFC 171 in Dallas, Texas. The announcement was made initially on Beyond the Octagon and put out on the official UFC News Twitter feed, which you can check out below.
Woodley recently rebounded from a split decision loss to Jake Shields with a knockout win against former title contender Josh Koscheck at UFC 171. Carlos Condit recently rebounded from two back-to-back losses against former champion Georges St-Pierre in a title bout and top contender Johny Hendricks with a knockout win over Martin Kampmann. With Johny Hendricks set to face Robbie Lawler for the now vacant UFC welterweight title on the same card, a win for Condit would likely net him another bid at the title.
UFC 171 is set for March 15, 2014 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
