Condit can't afford to lose this fight

Published Aug. 27, 2013 1:00 a.m. ET

Carlos Condit, one of the UFC's most entertaining and fierce competitors, has his back to the wall.

Faced with back-to-back loses for just the second time in his 35 fights as a professional, 'The Natural Born Killer' is well aware that avoiding the dreaded three-fight losing streak is an absolute must if he wants to contend for the welterweight title anytime soon.

Condit faces an additional obstacle in this bout against Martin Kampmann, in that he's lost to him once before in 2009.

Will he be able to use that loss as positive motivation? Or will it hinder him in the bout?

UFC Fight Night: Condit vs Kampmann II goes down Wednesday, August 28th on FOX Sports 1.
