Watch Condit's hand, then hardy's. This is what good coaching does for a fighter. Condit: hips turn perfectly, leading the torso. This creates a whip-crack effect (imagining the whip's handle is the leg, through psoas, abs, lats, pecs, delts and finally BAM, biceps catch all of that momentum). -Hand is vertical. -He didn't get his hand back to his face. Big risk. But he stayed in the pocket and used good form. Hardy's punch is WEAK, even though he actually lands HIS hook first. I know in real-time on the GIF it looks fast, but the power he needed would have come from his feet and elbow. Look at his feet. During the exchange, they get close together. He quits turning his hips. His hand is horizontal instead of vertical. And he can't bend the elbow to generate the "hook" motion, because he is using all pecs/delts to throw the hook.
