St-Pierre takes the center of the ring and is on the attack. He grabs a hold of Condit’s left leg and easily drags him to the canvas. GSP continues to try to pass the full-guard, but is dropping decent punches in the meantime. St-Pierre keeps pulling on the back of Condit’s neck to prevent any surprise submissions. Condit is gushing blood from the right side of his forehead after eating a sharp elbow. 2ndRound: St-Pierre clocks him with a right hand. Condit is clearly not as confident as he was five minutes ago. Condit comes up empty on a flying knee and eats a big right hand for his troubles. Condit throws an arrant kick, St-Pierre catches it and plants him on his back with two minutes remaining. GSP is really targeting that cut now. It’s a bloody mess inside the cage. Condit raises his hands, unfazed by his battered mug. St-Pierre is now cut under his left eye. 3rdRound: Wow! Condit drops GSP with a head kick and pounces.
