Condit is currently on a five fight skid, with three of those losses coming via submission. Since losing a close and controversial decision in a title bout against former champ Robbie Lawler, things haven’t turned around for “The Natural Born Killer”. He’s also lost pivotal bouts to high-profile names like Demian Maia and Michael Chiesa, and hasn’t won a fight since May 2015 when he defeated Thiago Alves via TKO.
Gall stormed into the UFC with submission wins over CM Punk and Sage Northcutt. He then lost a decision to Randy Brown, but bounced back with yet another submission win, this time over George Sullivan. He then lost a devastating TKO to veteran Diego Sanchez, but returned to the win column with a decision win over Salim Touahri.
