Former WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit has been offered and will sign a new four-fight deal with the UFC that will see the New Mexico native stay with the promotion into the foreseeable future.
Sources close to Condit on Wednesday confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com.
Condit is expected to make his return to action against Dan Hardy at UFC 120 in London, England, in October, although no confirmation has been made by the UFC about the fight.
Sources speaking with MMAWeekly.com could not cement the fight with Hardy, although the new four-fight deal is a lock at this point, and is awaiting final signatures.
Since moving to the UFC after the WEC shifted its welterweight division over to the promotion, Condit has gone 2-1 with all of his fights being against a contender or winning the Fight of the Night honors. In his last contest, Condit got a last second stoppage win over Canadian Rory MacDonald at UFC 115 in June.
Overall, Condit is 7-1 with Zuffa since moving over to the promotion after it purchased the WFA.
