World Extreme Cagefighting welterweight title-holder Carlos Condit (22-4), one of the few world top-10 170-pounders not fighting in the UFC, has signed a contract extension with the WEC.

The news comes from USATODAY.com.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, though Condit confirmed that he had just one fight remaining on his previous deal.

Condit (22-4), who joined the WEC after fighting for organizations such as Rumble on the Rock and Pancrase, defeated John Alessio for the title at WEC 26 in March 2007. He's since made two successful title defenses -- against Brock Larson at WEC 29 and Carlo Prater at WEC 32.

He's now won seven straight fights, and none of his 22 victories have gone to decision.

Condit, who's been vocal about wanting to unify the WEC and UFC titles, has not been scheduled for his next fight.

Im glad he resigned... the other day we all were discussing that the Zuffa guys may be merging the MW/LHW Divs of the WEC into the UFC. Although a little pointless, it dont bother me...however I think the WEC NEEDS their WW Div to stay afloat. It's a major factor in drawing a crowd because it's definately the most talented of the WEC Divs! So Condit signing an extension secures the weight class to me.
