“I feel great. Was awesome to fight for fans here, even though they’re booing me. Dan Hardy is a great competitor. Hats off to him -- great respect. I feel comfortable on my feet, and if the thing had gone to ground, I would have done well there, too.” - Carlos Condit

Carlos Condit delivered a career-defining performance in the co-main event of UFC 120, as he knocked out Dan Hardy in the first round of their welterweight clash. Early on, the crowd were already chanting Hardy’s name. The fighters exchanged hard leg kicks, and both men remained standing as the round goes on. Hardy tried to hit Carlos Condit with his counter left hook, but caught a colossal left from his opponent instead. Condit rattled the heavy-handed fighter with his simultaneous left hooks, then Dan Hardy semi-consciously hit the floor at 4:27.

“I was worried about his left hand. I know he’s got a lot of power. I trained quite a bit for [his left hook], and there you have [the results].”
