CARLOS CONDIT has branded Court McGee a savage despite beating the Crusher at UFC Fight Island 4 last night.
The judges’ scores were 30-27 across the board as Condit won by unanimous decision – after breaking McGee’s nose in the first round.
Asked whether McGee’s nose became a target in the latter stages of the fight, the Natural Born Killer explained how he watched the TUF 11 winner recorrect his injury mid-fight.
Asked whether, McGee’s nose became a target in the latter stages of the fight, Condit said: “Well this dude fixed it himself, he’s a f***ing savage.
“I think I forgot about it because it wasn’t crooked any more.
“But dude, what a gangster.”
Condit showed flashes of his prime in an all-action encounter with McGee, who kept the fight competitive despite losing all three rounds.
The win was Condit’s first since a TKO against Thiago Alves in May 2015, and snapped a five-fight losing streak.
Condit said: “It’s been a long one, I’ve had some ups and downs.
“Next step forward, whatever it is, keep working, focus on what I’ve got to do. Take care of business.”
Condit vs McGee closed out the preliminary card at Abu Dhabi’s Flash Forum at Yas Island.
In the headline bout of the evening, Holly Holm beat Irene Aldana by unanimous decision.
Holm eased to a dominant win over the highly touted Mexican to register consecutive victories for the first time since starting her career with a ten-match winning streak.
