Carlos Condit promised violence, and that's just what fight fans witnessed at last night's (Sat., May 30, 2015) UFC Fight Night 67 event from  inside Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil.

Unfortunately for the hometown crowd, it was one of their fellow countrymen, Thiago Alves, who was on the receiving end of "The Natural Born Killer's" violent striking spree.

Indeed, Condit came out aggressive as usual despite his year long layoff due to a torn ACL. With the majority of the fight playing out on the feet, Condit was able to unleash his entire arsenal, which included flying knees, punches, elbows and plenty of "spinning shit."

Eventually, Condit caught Alves with a perfectly-timed elbow to the nose which ultimately busted it up enough to force a leakage of the Brazilian's blood. The repeated elbows to the beak that followed didn't do Alves any favors, either.

After the cageside doctor took a peak of the damage, he decided that "The Pitbull" could not continue on with his broken nose. According to MMA Fighting, Dr. Marcio Tannure, the medical director of Brazil's athletic commission CABMMA, revealed that Alves would have to go extensive surgery in order to repair the damages (which you can see here).

As of now, there is no timetable available for Thiago's return.
