Statistics show that Carlos Condit is one of the most prolific finishers in the UFC. Of his first 23 victories, all of them were finishes. Now he has 28 wins in MMA, and 26 of those are stoppages. That’s an astounding 93% finishing rate. Of his 13 TKO/KO wins, 4 of those stand above the rest. Here are the top four KOs in the career of Carlos Condit.
Knocking out Dong Hyun Kim
Condit’s most brutal display of technique and power. Jumping through the air and landing a perfect flying knee on Dong Hyun Kim. From there he lands six punches on the dazed Korean to finish the fight and render Kim unconscious against the fence.
Knocking out Dan Hardy
Hardy and Condit traded lefts simultaneously but Condit’s landed right on the button and dropped the Brit on his back. Two more shots on the ground put away Hardy.
Knocking out Renato Verissimo
UFC vet Renato “Charuto” Verissimo was a favorite over condit in 2006 when they fought in Hawaii. But things worked out very differently than expected as Condit landed a big knee, seven punches, five knees on the ground, and the bout was done in 17 seconds. The win really put Condit on the map in MMA.
Stomping Tatsunori Tanaka
Watch this fight from Japan and you see why Condit is the “Natural Born Killer”. After dropping Tanaka with an uppercut, he then goes for a soccer kick to the head, ten punches, a soccer kick to the body, five more punches and stomp to the face to seal the deal.
