In the featured bout of the preliminary card, Carlos “the Natural Born Killer” Condit (30-13) looks to get back on the winning side after 5 straight losses against very tough competition.  He welcomes the always ready veteran, Court “the Crusher” McGee (19-9). This is how the fight went down….

Round 1

First 30 seconds of the fight these guys are just feeling each other out. They exchange leg kicks. Not much action a minute-and-a-half in. Body kicks from both guys that are defended. Nice two kick combination from McGee. Court McGee is the busier fighter so far 3 minutes in. Couple body kicks from Condit and McGee comes back with some hands. Very uneventful first round. No major strikes landed from either fighter but McGee has pushed the action more. Right as the bell sounds, Condit lands a short cross that drops McGee and we’re going to round two. That last punch may have swung the round to Condit

Round 2

Condit is looking to close the distance and get inside and lands a nice left. Carlos seems to be moving more forward this round I’m looking to let his hands go more. McGee wobbles Condit with a nice leg kick. Left hook lands from McGee and he continues to try to punish the legs of Condit with kicks. Both guys are exchanging kicks in the center of the octagon. We have seen no clenching or desire to shoot for a takedown from either fighter.  Condit has had the better of the boxing and McGee is bleeding from the nose as a second round comes to a close.
