It’s “Carlos Condit Day” Right Now and You Didn’t Even Know It

(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.

Condit vs. Dong Hyun Kim

Condit vs. Dan Hardy

Condit vs. Tatsunori Tanaka

Condit vs. Renato Verissimo

Condit vs. Frank Trigg 

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.

If Dan Hardy had landed that left just a little more flush, that would have been an epic double knockout. They both fired the exact same combo at the exact same time. Condit just landed his a little better.

I never do this, but Hebrew in the captcha? Really?

Jeez Kimbo, how young ARE you? If you can't appreciate a Seinfeld reference, it is YOU who sucks so bad.

^Was thinking the same thing. Either that or a flash mob busting MJ's "Moon Walk". And why no Condit-Diaz GIFS? Ohhhhh, right. Not very GIF worthy, now is it.

The day will be capped by the inaugural 5k race, "Carlos Condit's Run for Your Life."

Fuck you guys! On February 29, 1940, Gone with the Wind is honored with eight Oscars by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. An epic Southern romance set during the hard times of the Civil War, the movie swept the prestigious Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography, Art Direction, Film Editing, and Actress categories. I've been drunk since 6 am

Steak and Blow Job Day? Now THAT would be badass! Women get valentine's day, we should get something in return.

Yea buddy! Burquenos don't need a whole lot of reason to celebrate either. I'll crack open a cold one tonight in honor of Carlitos. Sad that this is the first I've heard of "Carlos Condit Day."
