Kind of crazy day
Paid 500 bucks to see diaz vs gsp ran to work now looked and see
That diaz is off the card
I am not upset condit vs gsp is still a good fight. But I wouldn't have shelled out 500 bucks for a seat

Pretty much penn vs fitch will happen now
I wouldn't be surprised if they pull penn off the card and have
Penn vs fitch main event in san jose

Right now chances are machida vs davis will be it

I believe Dana stated that you'll have an opportunity to get a refund if you want one.

Really disappointed in Nick Diaz. I think he was the biggest challenger we've seen so far for GSP.

Now he'll never get the chance to prove it.

Condit vs GSP is a good fight too. Too bad Diaz won't play the game.

Shocked...big fan of Condit and Diaz. Such a blown oppurtunity, that has just got to eat you up inside, knowing that you just blew millions that could have changed your life for not only you, but for your family as well. Obviously he has some extreme anxiety issues...but the negligence he has shown in not even returning phone calls, that's just absurd. Frankly Condit is more deserving anyways when you look at the resume of both fighters.

Condit is maybe a little more dangerous--more diverse--but still has the same holes in his game that Diaz has. Poor takedown defense--but I think Condit's guard is a little more active, and he will constantly be attacking. Looking forward to this one.



Hmmmm.... interesting choice of words. Even if Condit's guard were more ACTIVE (which I'm not sure I agree with) there is no way in hell that it is more EFFECTIVE.

Let's chill with the fighter bashing, folks. I understand some of you are upset but rules are rules. Let's play nice.

I would have loved to see GSP dominate him, but oh well. I hope he retires and hires a therapist. .

That sucks, because Nick Diaz "may be" better than Condit, he looked great beating up Paul Daley (and Daley beat Kampman, who beat Condit)


I think Nick realized he was gonna get outworked, and outpointed, and maybe it was better business to stay relevant rather than face wrestlers who will outwork him. and or maybe he is very simple minded to the point where he thinks he has no responsibilities.
