The first round was MacDonald captilizing with takedowns while Condit probably landed more on the feet.  MacDonald was able to time Condit's strikes or catch Condit was he was throwing a knee to acheive the takedown.  Condit wobbled MacDonald with big right hand and landed several solid leg kicks.  However, MacDonald was pressing the action the most of the round. 

The second round was pretty even as Condit landed some leg kicks and managed to take MacDonald down only to be swept by MacDonald.  Condit was trying to work the rubber guard but couldn't do much with it and MacDonald wasn't doing anything really offensive as Condit got back to his feet.  MacDonald was the aggressor as he kept moving forward the whole round until Condit kind of took over for the last 40 seconds.
