The final minute of the 1st Round in this highly anticipated Welterweight showdown saw both fighers connecting with a left hook after finishing with a right handed punch. Condit's landed right on Hardy's jaw, causing him to take a short nap in front of his home crowd. Hardy's landed a millisecond later on the side of Condit's neck.
For all of the folks who claim Georges St. Pierre has cleaned out his division, not once, but twice. I give you... Carlos Condit.
