1stRound:

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.

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.
