Former challenger for the UFC light heavyweight title, Alexander Gustafsson congratulated Robbie Lawler on successfully defending his welterweight championship on Facebook. Gustafsson also went on to empathize with Carlos Condit in losing a tough and very close decision.
Gustafsson posted a photo of Lawler and Condit posing right before the decision was announced and captioned it saying, “Congrats to Champ Robbie Lawler. Carlos, I know the feeling, been there, twice!
Amazing fight from both warriors.”
With having their dreams just at the end of their gloves, both Gustafsson and Condit have fallen just shy of claiming the undisputed title of their respective divisions.
While Gustafsson has said that he knows he can still become a world champion, Condit isn’t sure if he wants to get back on the saddle and work his way to another title fight, although many would love to see an immediate rematch with Lawler.
There is the uncertainty of how long the road to a title shot will be for both men. One thing for certain is that fans of both fighters hope that they are still willing to get back in the Octagon to put on memorable fights like they have done so spectactularly throughout their career.
