    That Carlos Condit really banged up Nick while he was running away. Oh what a champ he’ll be. What a dog fight. Lol. His game was so good that it didn’t even involve injuring the other fighter, just running from him and scoring some marks. War Diaz!!!

      Enough already with the ignorant remarks… You need to learn more about MMA and off Diaz nuts. What fight were you watching… Condit owned Diaz in the center of the octagon… Not to mention he out pointed and out struck nick by a margin. Ohhhh yea he can do that by “running”.

      Please enough with excuses condit won clearly…. You want knock em sock em fights every time… Start a bar fight… Otherwise find a new sport to watch.

    all three judges scored the fight for Condit. Dana White and Joe Rogan agree, Bas Ruten agrees. Every one agrees except for the Diaz brothers and their fans. When Muhammad Ali used a stick and move fighting style he is considered the greatest ever. But if Condit does it he is running? Strikes thrown and landed is a better representation of aggression than the direction in which you are walking. The bottom line is Condit threw more strikes and landed more strikes (151 to 110 landed). Now i understand math is hard for the Diaz Brothers but i didnt know you had to be equally retarded to be a fan of theirs. Diaz is just another B level welter weight from strike force.

    Bottom line: no one is scared of Carlos Condit

    For real

      Yeah people talk all yo want I like Nick Diaz but I also recognize when a fighter outsmarts another! you don’t think anyone should be scare of Carlos Condit? Go ask Dong Hyun Kim (KO), Dan Hardy (KO)and Rory MacDonald (TKO)those are his 3 last fights before Diaz, his only other decision win was against Jake Ellenberger and that’s in 28 wins in 33 fights! All the other wins have been the same or by Submission! So hell yeah I would be scare of Carlos! Diaz is just more controversial because of the things he says and does. I don’t see why people can’t understand that a fighter can be smart and well spoken

  • kwite11

    Any fighter can run backwards and sneak punches in, while the other fighter is agressively moving forward it doesnt take a genius to do that!!! If condit isn’t willing to go in there and fight we will see how long he holds that title for. A guarantee you he will never sell any paper views buys if he’s the main card…. You guys talk about boxing and this and that Nick Diaz Is the Mayweather of boxing Love him or Hate him you guys will still pay for his fights and put money in his bank accounts lame ass fools! I put people in body bags, you will need the ref to save your life get the Fu&k out of here condit!

    Funny how condit is medically suspended but not Diaz! After all condit landed more and through the harder punches!!!!! He basically picked Diaz apart but he gets suspended not Diaz… What a fu$kin joke! War Diaz

    I bought the pay per view because Condit was on it not Diaz, Diaz barely got by BJ Penn, who is a light weight. While Diaz was walking forward he should have moved his hands as much as his mouth. DIAZ IS A B LEVEL FIGHTER. Maybe he can go back to strike force and fight KJ Noons again, he did kinda good in the second fight against KJ. He might win the rubber match.

    @kwite, You say Nick Diaz is the Mayweather of Boxing? I think Mayweather is the Mayweather of boxing. As his name is Floyd Mayweather and he is a boxer. Diaz fanboys = retards, and that is almost insulting to regular retards.

  • kwite11

    @willevans if you think nick barely got passed Penn your an idiot, he beat his ass and bj Penn is a legend in the sport. Look up their records moron Diaz has fought better competition. And if he was such a B Level fighter they wouldn’t have brought him from strike force to face GSP right off the bat and pay him as much money as the A Level fighters…. And the mayweather comment was meant that mayweather talks a lot of sh$t and so does nick And people buy his fight to either watch him get his ass kicked or watch him win the point your ass is still watching Nick fight RETARD!

    I checked out Diaz’s record. I see a loss to Riggs(no longer in the ufc),a loss to Parisyan (no longer in the ufc), a loss to Sherk (is he even still alive?), a loss to KJ Noons (a b level light weight) and a loss to Deigo Sanchez. Also, I seem to remember another fighter they “brought in from strike force to fight GSP” he was knocked out in less than a minute by Ellenberger, Jake Sheilds. GSP has cleaned out the welterweight division so they over hype every one he faces now so they can continue to sell pay per views. you sir, are a fan boy and need to accept the fact that Nick Diaz is a B LEVEL FIGHTER. Good day
