ABU DHABI – Carlos Condit beat Court McGee with a unanimous decision Saturday to close out the preliminary card at UFC on ESPN 16 in Abu Dhabi.

Take a look inside the fight with Condit, who snapped a five-fight skid and won for the first time in nearly five and a half years.

Condit on the fight’s key moment

“Part of (the game plan) was to fight long southpaw. For whatever reason, Court didn’t shoot much. He’s got a really good wrestling game. He’s really good at pushing guys up against the fence and grinding them out. I think that threw him off. He wasn’t able to shoot very much. I just wanted to continue to push the pace. I saw that his nose looked like a boomerang. So I was going to try and target that more. Court stood up and I don’t think he knew exactly what happened. I think he thought the fight was over (after he got knocked down).”

“Competing at this level for a long period of time, you’re going to have wins and losses. I’m still about it. I still have fire in my gut. This fits right into the craziness of 2020 for me. It’s been a while since I’ve had a win. I haven’t fought in almost two years. It feels really good. I love this. I love what I do — win or lose. I’m a competitor. I come here to show up and get my hand raised. It’s been a while since I’ve got my hand raised. It feels amazing.”
