    Great job on Condit’s part. Jus how you beat Diaz, stick and move. It is a little different boxing with a guy who has the same reach as you. A lot of ppl are gonna call this fight boring, but you can’t outwork Diaz, jus out-gameplan him. Great job again Condit.

    The one writing the play by play for this fight obviously is a Condit fan. Diaz clearly won rounds 1 and 2. I also believe he won round 5 as well. Oh yea, 37% of people agree with me on that too. You guys saw it as a 50-45 fight??? Ridiculous, bias bs. Even the description of how the fight action is sided towards condit. Go ahead and add “Condit turns back and runs away” in between almost every sentence of every round except for 4. If i hadn’t seen the fight and read this i would think Diaz just got destroyed. When in truth Condit won by being “elusive”(Literally running away, stopping, striking, rinse and repeat.). Good game plan? No shame in that or your scoring? How about scoring a fight for AGGRESSIVENESS, OCTAGON CONTROL, SUBMISSION ATTEMPTS. What a joke guys. Watch the fight again and tell me Diaz did not win one of those rounds. Exactly.
    Im not surprised that Condit got the nod but what a weak performance of a “good enough” game plan. Where was the dog fight? Diaz tried to bring it, Condit tried to get away with it…..not TAKE it. Sad so many want these type of fighters to be fighting for gold. GSP vs. Condit…..**********************, that is going to be like pounding a bottle of Nyquil whilst injecting an Ambien. Dog fight….lol…what a bunch of hype from another Greg Jackson *****. It was like watching a rott chase a chihuahua around for 25 mins. 50-45 ???????? sigh.

    50-45? Really? Surprised you didn’t score the Nelson/Werdum fight 30-27 for Nelson. I want an explanation!!!!!!!! :)

  • Towers66
