Here is the play-by-play from ondit vs. St-Pierre :
Yves Lavigne is the third man inside the Octagon. 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.
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.

He picks Condit up and slams him to the mat. Condit fights to his feet, but St-Pierre easily gets him back down. This will be an interesting stanza to score because Condit got the knockdown, but GSP dominated the last half of the round.

He attempts a triangle from his back, but St-Pierre powers through and unloads some bombs. Condit gets to his feet. GSP almost gets a takedown, though Condit reverses.
