Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit Preview

The first title fight of the year could very well be the best title fight of the year.UFC195

Two of the most exiting fighters in the UFC will square off Saturday for the welterweight title. Both fighters are known for finishing their opponents and putting on great fights. Lawler, the 2015 fighter of the year, is making his 2nd defense of the belt. The last time he stepped into the octagon he put on one of the best fights we’ve ever seen. Condit, on the other hand missed a whole year before returning to action in March when he made quick work of Thiago Alves. This will be Condit’s 2nd title shot, his first being a decision loss to future hall of famer, Georges St. Pierre.

Prediction: Carlos Condit by TKO in round 4.

“From start to finish, I’m going to be the boss in this fight,” says Lawler. “I’ll be the one controlling it, and that’s how I’m going to get the victory. I’m more disciplined now as champion—I’m sharpening stuff, more meticulous and shaving off wasted energy. I’m going to continue to grow as a champion and do my thing.”

Lawler captured the championship in December of 2014 in a split decision over Johnny Hendricks. Lawler has a career record of 26-10 he will need to find a way to absorb punishment from Condit (30–8), one of the most explosive strikers in all of mixed martial arts.

I believe Carlos Condit has what it takes to beat Robbie Lawler. However, this fight could go either way as both fighters have great punching power and can finish a fight in the blink of an eye.
