In typical Nick Diaz fashion he blames everyone else for his loss and says that it's MMA's fault he couldn't keep pace with Condit! I say good ridance to bad rubish!!

At least he spoke his opinion. I don't really like the direction of MMA judging anymore either.

I can't really believe Diaz lost. I'm not saying Condit isn't a top fighter, I.just assumed Diaz's style would be hard to handle. I figured it would take 2-3 rounds to figure out but he won and I'm happy as hell that he did. Condit winning prevented me from my 1st perfect card but I'm glad he won

If running away and throwing leg kicks wins you a title then I've lost all faith in the judges and a ton of faith in the sport.

Carlos clearly won that fight, Half way through the 1st, I said that he wasn't fighting himself and was fighting very safe, 1 strike, out of there... This IS smart...

Boxer's fight smart.

But, Even though Diaz lost, I prey that MMA don't turn out to be a point sport, Which tonight main event was. I love getting UFC PPV's, But I would spot quickly if it was 5 decisions every PPV. This is where its heading. Congrat's to Carlos, But I can see where Diaz got pissed off.

I think a lot of people are confusing being boring with losing. Granted, Condit didn't land much of significance, but neither did Diaz, and if neither guy really lands anything significant, the guy with a bunch of leg kicks gets the round, I just don't see how anyone can find 3 rounds in there to give to Diaz.

I scored it 48-47 for Carlos. Really close fight tho. Good event numbers wise, 10-1 with 101 points.

Dana at the presser that "Diaz won the first two rounds without a doubt" and the judges gave Diaz the 5th. That qualifies as 3 rounds that people with more qualified opinions than yours gave Diaz I don't see any way you could think 'there's no way anyone can find 3 rounds to give Diaz'. That shows a very poor understanding of MMA judging on your part. And if it's not the understanding of MMA judging then I always thought you were a less biased poster than this to not be able to see others opinions.

It's bullshit. Everyone's turning on Condit. He's usually a very exciting fighter but he's never been a dumb one. He came in with a gameplan and instead of brawling with Diaz he kept on his feet and never gave Diaz the chance to get in the groove.

I think a lot of the love for Diaz is getting in the way of some fan's perspective of the fight.

I agree, but also for any fan to say there's no way they could understand that anyone could see Diaz winning is just as bad.

It was a close fight and it could've gone either way. To completely ignore that the opposite result is possible is biased for either side.

aggression and octagon control are scoring criteria. Diaz dominated that for 25 minutes

theres a huge difference between running away and what condit was doing. he was being elusive all thw while landing more harder and cleaner shots than diaz. if diaz couldnt figure it out thats his problem. condit looked great
