In possibly the biggest fight of his career, the welterweight Max Griffin beat Carlos Condit via unanimous decision with a dominant first round in which he landed a series of clean leg kicks.
Condit, making his 19th U.F.C. appearance, worked his way back into the fight in the second round as Griffin appeared to be slowing down, but the 35-year-old Griffin did enough in the third round, which included him briefly taking Condit down in the final minute, to seal it.
After the win, Griffin said that Condit is someone he has always looked up to. The fight closed the U.F.C. 264 preliminary bouts.
