Carlos Condit Threw Everything He Had At Robbie Lawler

ufc 195

Former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit threw everything he had had Robbie Lawler Saturday night at UFC 195.

However, it was not enough, as Lawler retained the title with a split decision victory.

Condit, who also was the last fighter to hold the WEC title, finished with 504 total strikes thrown in the 25-minute fight. He connected on just short of 200 of them, which was more than Lawler threw in the fight.

“I felt like I had three rounds in the bag,” Condit said. “But that is why you don’t leave it to the judges.

“I knew (heading into the fifth) it was close, but I thought I was ahead.”

Lawler retained the title on the heels of strong finishes to the rounds he won, including the fifth, when both stood and went toe-to-toe.

“Even in the fifth, you have to still fight,” Condit said. “You have to win that last round.”
