3. Robbie Lawler Defeats Carlos Condit – UFC 192
While this welterweight title fight was an extremely fun, back-and-forth kind of fight, the judges still got the final result wrong.
Everyone knows fifth round Robbie Lawler is hell on wheels, but Condit still pieced him up for the majority of the fight. The champion had his moments, too, which made the fight all the more entertaining.
However, Condit did more than enough to win on the judges’ scorecards if the judges had paid attention to the fight. “The Natural Born Killer” used whipping leg kicks to slow Lawler down and employed pinpoint accuracy in his punches.
Most fight fans agree that Condit should have taken the belt home that night. In fact, that fight may have been Condit’s best performance, and it happened to be a decision defeat.
Just remember that Lawler’s win here has a serious asterisk next to it, due to the fact that Condit soundly outstruck him.
