Carlos Condit ended a two-fight losing skid at UFC Fight Night 27 with a vicious fourth round TKO victory over Martin Kampmann. Previously, Condit had lost back-to-back decisions against UFC welterweight champion Georges St Pierre and current #1 contender, Johny Hendricks. After losing a razor-thin split decision against Kampmann in his debut, Condit rattled off five straight victories to earn a shot at UFC gold in November of last year.

Matt Brown’s unexpected tear through the UFC’s welterweight division continued at UFC Fight Night 26 with a 29-second knockout victory over Mike Pyle. He’s now won six straight fights, including four straight knockout victories over Luis Ramos, Mike Swick, Jordan Mein, and Pyle.

Joe Lauzon is in a must-win situation to stay among the elite in the 155-pound division, following back-to-back decision losses to Jim Miller and Michael Johnson. His last victory came at UFC on FOX 4, submitting Jamie Varner in the third round of a “Fight of the Year” candidate.

Despite going just 3-7 in his last ten fights, Ultimate FIghter season six winner, Mac Danzig will get another opportunity to pick up a win inside the octagon. Most recently, Danzig suffered a brutal second round knockout defeat to Melvin Guillard at UFC on FOX 8. The loss was his second consecutive loss, including a split decision defeat to Takanori Gomi in November of last year.
