Condit KO's Hardy in spectacular fashion

by Michael David Smith | source:

Dan Hardy complained heading into his fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 120 that Condit and his trainer, Greg Jackson, are too cautious and try to win dull decisions. He can't say that anymore.

Instead, Condit knocked Hardy out with a brutal left hook in the first round of their bout in London on Saturday.

After the televised card got off to a dull start with three straight decisions, Condit changed everything by standing and trading shots with Hardy. After a couple minutes of action, Condit and Hardy both threw left hooks at each other at the same time, but Condit's landed just in time to send Hardy to the canvas. Condit landed a couple more on the ground to erase any doubt.

Great KO. I doubt it will humble Hardy for too long though.

I was wanting Condit to win from the time they made this fight. I honestly didn't see condit winning this fight unless he was able to lock something on after hardy got tired from punching him in the face. I figured condit's chin would let him stay in it long enough but I don't think I have EVER been this surprised after a fight. and no I don't think this says anything bad at all for hardy's chin I just think it landed as good as any punch could. After rewatching I don't think hardy was out completely from that punch. It looked to me like the punches(s) on the ground is what put him out.
