“The Natural Born Killer” is back, ladies and gentlemen.

It’s an easy declaration to make with Fight Night 67 now in the rearview mirror, but heading into last weekend’s epically-unattended-but-actually-quite-entertaining card, many of us feared that we would be in store for a Carlos Condit performance that showed every bit the wear and tear that a near 50-fight veteran coming of ACL surgery could. We expected this fight to be the first sign in the downswing of Condit, by my God were we wrong.

In a vintage Condit performance — from his aggressive, eight-limbed attack right down to the pools of blood that painted the canvas when all was said and done — the former interim welterweight champion thrashed a battle ready Thiago Alves until the ringside doctor’s said no more. It was an inspiring, technically brilliant display from Condit, and one that launched him right back into the title picture with a resounding…crunch of nose bones being broken.

But hey, just another boring Jackson’s fighter, amiright?

The co-main event of last weekend’s card turned out to be an equally entertaining affair, as Charles Oliveira and Nik Lentz threw down for the second time with redemption on the line for both men. Lentz and Oliveira first fought way back in 2011, with the back-and-forth fight being declared a No Contest after Oliveira landed an illegal knee on Lentz in a scramble. Lucky for us, the rematch was just as gritty and memorable as the first time around, albeit with a much more defining ending.

And finally, the co-co-main event of the evening, former Strikeforce¬†EliteXC lightweight champion KJ Noons continued with his up-and-down UFC run by dropping a first round submission to the heavily-favored Brazilian Alex Oliveira in a welterweight contest. To say that Noons was ever really in this one would be a bit of a stretch, but it appears that the former boxer definitely took Oliveira too lightly once things hit the canvas. The loss drops Noons to 13-8-1 overall, while “Cowboy” improved to 11-2.
