Diaz vs. Condit FightMetric Results | Condit Breaks UFC Leg Kick Record


Last night a new UFC interim welterweight champion was crowned when Carlos Condit was awarded a unanimous decision victory over  Nick Diaz in the UFC 143 Main event.

In the aftermath of the decision, the MMA community ripped in two. Half think Diaz won, the other half in support of Condit. I personally scored the fight for Condit as my play by play analysis shows.

In times like these it is great to have a tool like FightMetric that objectively breaks down the numbers for the fans to make sense of.

If you take a look at the captured image above it is obvious that Condit outsruck his opponent, not only with volume punches thrown but all around strikes landed and he did it with a higher percentage.

The number’s do not lie.

Additionally, during the post-fight aftermath UFC officials stated that Condit has broken the leg kick record for the UFC. He landed more leg kicks in the Diaz fight than any fighter has landed in UFC history.

For his efforts Condit gets the win, a belt, a new Harley Davidson and his place in the record books. Not a bad trip to Vegas.
