UFC welterweight title-contender (and former interim champ) Carlos Condit has only been finished three times in his career despite having fought 36 times. One of the trio of individuals to put Condit away is, obviously, Healy who tapped “The Natural Born Killer” out three fights before the fan-favorite made his WEC debut. It was also the last time Condit lost by way of stoppage.
Lightweight Pat Healy will take to the Octagon in a couple of weeks when he clashes with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 165 where he’ll attempt to follow up on a fantastic showing against Jim Miller this past April without the subsequent suspension for recreational drug use. If Healy is able to get by the unbeaten Russian, he’ll set himself up for a potential title-shot or at least a crack at top contendership, adding yet another impressive feat to a rock solid run in MMA. Of course, it won’t be the first big win for “Bam Bam”, as he’s taken out more than his share of game adversaries… (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
