FightersBlog Top Fights: Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit
Jan 2nd, 2016, just 2 days into the new year, UFC fans around the world may have witnessed not only the best 5th round in Welterweight history, but an eary candidate for fight of the year. Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit said they were going to make their main-event fight something to remember, and they couldn’t have been more right.
Throughout the fight, Condit was out striking the champ, Lawler 3-1, and looked to have a pretty significant lead in the fight due to his volume of strikes. As the fight carried on, it was back and forth, but once these two warriors entered round #5, the fight became a war like we’ve never seen. “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler and the “Natural Born Killer” Carlos Condit both lived up to their nicknames, leaving everything they had in the final round of the fight, in which is now considered the greatest round in Welterweight history.
Robbie Lawler won a split decision, retaining his Welterweight championship, however, both left the octagon winners.
At the post-fight press conference, it was rumored that Carlos Condit may retire after his fight with Lawler. Once Condit arrived to the press conference, he said this fight was “do or die for my career”, and that if he lost, he would take retirement into serious consideration. His future with the UFC is uncertain.
