(Then again, when you’re married to this chick, every day is kind of a celebration.)
Residents of Albuquerque, rejoice! It seems Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry has officially declared this day to be “Carlos Condit Day” in honor of the newly crowned interim Welterweight Champion. Condit was presented a special ceremony at Greg Jackson’s MMA Gym this afternoon, which consisted of re-watching the Condit/Diaz fight on a 4 hour loop and playing a real life version of Wooly Willy using Greg Jackson and some pencil shavings. A great day indeed.
Since we don’t really need an excuse to celebrate (re: drink) around here, we’d like to spread word of this holiday until we are eventually allowed to use it as an excuse for missing work. You know, like we’re trying to do with Steak and Blowjob Day, Festivus, and Leif Erikson Day. Anyway, join us below for a look back at some of “The Natural Born Killer’s” greatest moments, brought to you in the ever convenient forms of GIF and video. We won’t be able to celebrate this day again until 2016, so get you party hats on.
Fun fact: Condit’s father, Brian, was Chief of Staff for former New Mexico governor and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson.

When you make it out to the bar to celebrate tonight, order a “NBK” shot in Condit’s honor. What’s a NBK, you ask? One shot of Tequila, for Mexico, of course, combined with one shot of Black Velvet, because it will figuratively KO you, and a splash of Red Bull, lest you find yourself needing to backpedal out of the bar as quickly as possible.
