Stepping on a two weeks short notice, Alex stepped up his game and got the biggest win of his career over his idol Carlos Condit. From the first round, Condit looked like his usual self as he got the better of the Brazilian in the stand up. Alex stuck in there and tried taking him to the ground but Condit was relentless in his defense and attempted a choke in the first round. In the second, Alex kept moving forward until he landed the takedown. Condit fought back with his up kicks and soon began landing some of his trademark strikes that left a cut open on the Brazilian’s forehead. Tables turned when Alex was on the ground and landed a huge up kick right on the chin from there he gets him in a headlock. Alex wraps Condit in a tight guillotine as they stand up right when Condits legs give up and they go to the ground. The choke is deep and Condit is not responding but the referee still lets the fight continue up until Condit had to tap out.
