The co-main event at UFC 158 was a fantastic battle between Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit. Leading up to the event it was a coin toss to choose who would win, even in Vegas’ eyes.
The fight started with Hendricks looking to catapult Condit’s head off with his trademark big left hook. Unfortunately for Hendricks, “The Natural Born Killer” seemed to have a chin made of steel. When he couldn’t drop the taller fighter, “Big Rigg” decided to go back to his bread and butter and take the fight to the ground. He did little to no damage to Condit when on the ground and eventually Condit was able to get back to his feet. Round two went the same way.
However, in round three, Condit seemed to find his range and began landing more and more shots. It seemed as if Hendricks lost some steam and gassed a little bit, which led to many believing Condit won that round.
When all was said and done, the judges saw the Hendricks winning the fight unanimously (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

Johny Hendricks was lobbying more than talking trash.

On UFC production values: “I have issues with how UFC mic’s their live audience as I feel that the announcers should have to work harder and have to have a more distinct tone and infliction at the loudest moments of the live event. That did not occur. On entrances that are hot, like GSP and Diaz, there...

"He did a great job promoting the fight," St-Pierre...

How much of an instigator is Ariel Helwani? Right off the bat he tells GSP that Diaz says he wants an immediate rematch and that he hits like a girl. Which is correct, Nick did say that, but out of context it sounds much more insulting than how Nick meant it in my opinion. GSP did what he needed to do to win this fight against a very dangerous opponent but he did not look as...
So what does one of the baddest men on the planet do after going five rounds with Nick Diaz? Get the Canadian dish Poutine of course.
