      Clearly the first grade didnt teach very proper grammar, clearly you didnt learn to read and clearly ur math skulls are in no mans land. Because condit out struck that pussy and made him look like a joke that he is…thats what happens when u think ur better than you are

      • Milo says:

        Couldnt agree more. In fairness I like Nick as much as he is portrayed to be the bad guy. I do think he’s slightly nuts, he’s a bit of a ticking time bomb and I think he could be better than he is. His fighting was so one dimensional it was almost boring to watch at points. Did nick win, no. Why is he frustrated? Condit didnt play his game and fight how nick wanted to fight (clever chap).
        Pretty disappointed with Nick’s performance as GSP would probably say but judging from what i saw if the same GSP comes back after injury he will have no troubles with either of condit as much i like him. Condti was sloppy but diverse, GSP is clever accurate and diverse. He will easily be able to deal with Condit. Happy condit “one” (won) this one.

          When ppl like nick diaz and bob sap rush at u relentlessly and try to make u back up against the cage how do u expect them to react? just sit there and let u corner them? or use movement to stay out of that

      • Aikai says:

        You must have been in the same first grade class.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Math Skull!!!!!!!! LMAO!

      • GUAMY says:

        math skulls? how are you gonna make a grammer mistake while making fun of anothers grammer? IDIOT. NICK WON THAT SHIT.

    • Steven says:

      You must be an illiterate Stockton boy too.

    • jason says:

      i think BJ should call nick and ask him if him and his brother want to join his gym. hahahahahahah!!!!!! fuck you nick!!! and fuck you cesar grace!!!!! hahahahaha

  2. Mr.Rusk says:

    Lllllmmmmaaaaoooo GSP

  3. Randy says:

    Why would anyone think Nick won… all he did was chase him down and he received a lot more punches than he delivered.. and because he had 1 take down to try to counter the 20+ leg kicks carlos did

    • learntoread says:

      @ Randy:

      Actually, in terms of punches, Diaz out-landed Condit 111 to 91. It was only leg kicks which Carlos landed significantly more. And yes, Diaz also secured the only takedown of the fight, took Condit’s back and nearly secured a rear naked choke.

      Many fans (as well as UFC fighters) thought Diaz took the 1st & 2nd rounds, (in which both rounds were very closely fought), as well as the 5th.

      • slacker says:

        Nowhere near a submission attempt. He controlled his wrists the entire time. Keep dreaming on that one. It was a lame take – down too. He groped him to the floor.

        • learntoread says:

          What fight were you watching?

          Near the end of the 5th Diaz had Condit’s back, had him wraped up in a body triangle & his arm clinched around Carlos’ jaw. A half an inch lower the fight would have been over. If you think Condit wasn’t in any trouble at that point you sir are delusional. Just sayin’

        • slacker says:

          Condit gave him the triangle as long as he controlled the wrists. He was in no trouble. One inch, but a million miles away as fr as sub – attempts. He pushed his arm off immediately and reversed position. It was a lame attempt for him to steal the round, when for just below 80% of it, he was losing on the feet again! Nick fought well, but he came up a little short.

        • learntoread says:

          @ Slacker:

          Controlled his wrists? Condit was trying to stay alive by pushing on Nick’s elbow when the chock was being sunk in, trying to keep the arm on his jaw and away from his neck. That had nothing to do with “writs control” man.

          And LOL @ you thinking Condit simply “gave him the triangle”. (*Did Diaz give BJ the body triangle/hooks when Penn took his back @ 137? No, because Nick knew that was the key to the position).

          That part of the 5th round last night was the closest the fight ever came to being finished and arguably the most exciting point of the entire fight (listening to the crowd reaction).

        • slacker says:

          Nowhere close to a submission. He was trying to get the attempt, but he never got it.

          With Penn, Diaz gave B.J. his face and took some good shots. You can’t control both.

          The crowd is the crowd. Who knows? But for Diaz, it was a desperate last ditch attempt at stealing a fight and probably round, he had lost.

        • learntoread says:

          Actually, in the Penn fight, Diaz had wrist control with one hand and his other hand on BJ’s ankle, which successively defended the position. So actually yes, you can control both the body lock/hooks and the choke. LOL

          Curious, what does “trying to get the attempt” actually mean? LOL. Diaz had his arm wrapped around Condits jaw, putting pressure on, looking to sink it down to the neck, that’s “THE ATTEMPT” pal. Just because it was unsuccessful doesn’t mean it didn’t garner points. It was the most dominant position of the fight.

        • slacker says:

          Kudos to Diaz for doing both but Condit only needed to control one area to prevent the submission attempt – that’s the point here, isn’t it? Some submission attempts fail, which obviously means the approach to attempt one can fail too. eg: trying to straighten a guys arm for an arm – bar. Diaz never had his arm locked on his chin or face. He pushed his arm off quickly before he could do that. Condit was in control the entire time and was in no danger. Sure, Diaz gets grappling points, but nothing related to a submission attempt.

          As for positions, it was the only “position” in the fight. If by “dominant position” you mean sustaining pressure and damage on the other guy, I would have to give that to Condit for the entire 4th round! Condit owned him for 5 minutes straight.

          Other than that, we have fleshed this part of the fight out pretty good and we should probably just agree to disagree. We both have good points. Who knows? Maybe you are right. Maybe that should count as a submission attempt. But I highly disagree. Let’s see what the analysts say in the coming weeks. I hope you get the re – match you want, and ultimately if thats what the fans want, then hopefully Dana will oblige. He usually does. If Nick wants it, he needs to do his part and ask for it.

  4. hate the game says:

    Diaz is just a bully, it was funny to see him holding condit’s leg at the end round 4. I think the only reason Diaz was cool to Condit at the end of the fight, was because he thought he won.

    Let’s see, will he learn from this and grow, or will he go into hiding and start sneaking out of windows again?

  5. Trey says:

    Idgaf what nobody says condit ran for five rounds thats not fighting fuck a gameplan go in that bitch and fight glad I didn’t waste money trying to watch this very disappointed not because carlos won but thats not a way to win by running and throwing those lil pussy kicks the whole time and did nothing different thats not a real win I don’t think the decision was controversial but that sucked

    • slacker says:

      Hey. Those weren’t pussy kicks. Those shots had some serious power behind them. You could hear it.

    • Gack says:

      Dude…this is MMA. Not Rockem Sockem Robots. The sport you want to watch doesn’t exist and is a 30 year old childs game. This isn’t boxing…this isn’t BJJ, this isn’t wrestling, this isn’t Tae Kwon Do, Kung fu or Tai or any other solo skill set. MMA = MIXED martial arts. Part of any professional/intelligent fighters plan should be to mitigate damage, find YOUR range, and impose YOUR game plan. It’s no secret that Diaz is a phenomenal boxer with power and amazing accuracy. Let him get you cornered against the cage where he can maximize his advantage over you and you would be a COMPLETE IDIOT. So no…Condit DID NOT run…he let Diaz back him up, but by doing so…kept Diaz at HIS distance and landed combos/strikes all fight long. When finally pressed to the cage, he may have to absorb a punch or two, but he would roll out and return to the center of the octagon and continue to pick Diaz apart while Diaz continual ATTEMPTED to stalk him down. I wanted Diaz to win…I like Condit more…I think Diaz is a punk…not professional AT ALL and a loud mouth, disrespectful and makes MMA look more like WWF. Wanted to see GSP vs Diaz soooo bad. But no way around this one…Conduit won easily on points…out struck Diaz. Want someone to blame? I blame Diaz’s corner. THEY should have seen what any REAL MMA fan was seeing and that was Diaz losing on points, and very clearly so. They should have told him he’s got to turn that around. Quit stalking Carlos…Carlos had his range down and was picking him apart while Diaz stalked. His corner should have told him to stay in the center of the octagon…box if you wanted to box. Or go for take downs and try to work his amazing BJJ. No way he or his corner should be surprised by this decision. Shame…so wanted GSP vs Diaz.

      • guamy says:

        this is also not the ultimate scoring championship either now is it. people buy PPV to watch 2 people engage in a fight not a fucking marathon you morons. Slacker take condits nutts outa your mouth bro your breath is starting to smell like Greg Jackson’s entire camp you fuckin POSER.

  6. Stevo the great says:

    I’m pretty sure even Stevie Wonder saw Diaz won that fight! ufc HAS RIGGED FIGHTS AND THIS WAS ONE JUST LIKE CHAEL BEATING BISPING! STRAIGHT PAYED OFF JUDGES.

    • KidRerro says:

      So chasing a guy and throwing minimal punches while receiving more strikes wins you a fight? Hmm that makes sense…

    • jason says:

      maybe you should stick to watching tennis candy pants.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      What’s with some of you conspiracy nuts? This ain’t boxing, if fights were rigged then how come Overeem beat Brock the PPV Emperor? I arrest my case!

      • guamy says:

        you arrest your case? lol sounds like you been aressted a few times in your life. if you dont think officials get paid off in vegas you have never been to vegas then.

      • jack says:

        Whats this bull about “close fight”. Diaz dominated. Before the fight, i thought condit would win but even with that mindset going into it, its clear that diaz won. Condit was striking with hits that diaz didnt even flinch. Only about 3 good, effective blows were landed by condit, and and diaz made condit run from him and would beat his ass! This was more than a bad call. Dana white doesnt like diaz. In the first or second round Rogan was saying “this is a close fight” but the first/second rounds were clearly won by diaz. I believe this may have been rigged. which is a shame because Rogan isnt the kind of guy i would see selling out. I think St.piere can beat either of them but they still screwed nick out of a title

        • jack says:

          PLUS with overeem vs lesnar. THERE WAS NO WAY TO HIDE THAT lesnar went down and overeem pursued it was no decision

  7. Stiffler says:

    They would make a bucket load more money with a gsp vs Diaz fight, so y would the UFC pay the judges off to let condit win? Condit won deal with it

  8. slacker says:

    Diaz threw some great combinations in rds. 1 & 2 and Condit in rds. 4 & 5. The third round was the transition round where Carlos started to take over with his strategy.

  9. learntoread says:

    Was a close fight. I, (like many others), had it:

    Diaz rounds 1,2,5. Condit rounds 3,4.

    Rounds 1 & 2 were tight though.

    And it’s not simply “Diaz fans” who think he should have gotten the decision, numerous MMA fighters (peers) have tweeted stating they thought Nick won and the judging was horseshit yet again.

    There really should be an immediate rematch, just as there was when Lyoto Machida edged Shogun Rua in a controversial 5 rd. UD @ UFC 104.

    Condit was literally running away during a lot of the fight, yet his fans call that “octagon control” or “aggression”? following up with the ever convenient “oh, that was his game plan”, lol. Diaz was stalking Condit for the majority of the match and was the only fighter who even came close to finishing.

    Hopefully Dana does the right thing and lets these two duke it out again while we wait for GSP.

    • slacker says:

      I thought rd. 1 and 5 were real close. I thought Diaz’ only decisive round was round 2. Everyone needs to remember that octagon control is the 3rd weighted statistic in importance level, coming after grappling 2nd, and striking 1st. Condit dictated where the fight was fought, making Diaz hit air on tonnes of strikes from the 3rd. round on. He tagged him on his exits from the fence many times and he re – set in the center and outstruck him. Diaz was outstruck, out – maneuvered, and out – smarted. He lost definitively.

      • learntoread says:

        I wouldn’t say he “definitely lost” Slacker, it was a very close fight.

        I just feel, as with the other very closely fought & controversial UD title fights in the past (Penn/Edgar, Machida/Rua, Couture/Rizzo), there should definitely be an immediate rematch (prior to GSP’s return in November) to settle the score.

        Just because Nick Diaz is such a polarizing figure and many fans despise him should not alter that notion. I feel both the fans and Diaz deserve “Condit Vs. Diaz 2″.

        • slacker says:

          It’s true. It was a close fight. But Condit had the most dominant single round – the 4th. He decisively won the 3rd. 1st and 5th were very close, but he edged him out in one for sure. If the people want a re – match, they will get a re – match. Dana won’t say no. Can Diaz pull himself together? Regardless, it’s clear that Condit outstruck him, fought his fight, and thwarted Nick’s strategy of pinning him to the fence. He has nothing to prove. He was the better fighter. Let Diaz go and fight Ellenberger and MacDonald and see how he does.

        • learntoread says:

          Ahh…No one was arguing that Condit won the 3rd and 4th rounds. Why even bring it up?

          Tip: You can’t win a 5 round fight by decisively winning just 2 rounds 10-9.

          The judges could have easily given Diaz a 10-9 in the 1st, 2nd, and 5th. Then it would be you here “up in arms” about the judging/outcome, rather than making your smug posts/remarks.

        • slacker says:

          About your tip. What I am trying to get across, is that if you have 2 decisive rds. to your opponent’s one, then chances are that one of the other two close ones will go in your favour. Basically, he stacked the odds in his favour. You are right. The judges could have given Nick those 3 rounds, but I don’t agree on the easily part, except for the 2nd. I am not trying to be smug. I think Condit deserves to get his full credit – that’s it.

  10. Chartmonster says:

    Nice picture mma news! Was that a face kick to Diaz? One of several!

  11. Alrekur says:

    I believe Diaz won the first 2 rounds. He has an odd way of checking kicks that doesn’t involve him raising his leg fully. In this I believe the striking % is wrong anyhow. I also believe he won the 5th and final etching out a win with getting the back of Condit. Not to say it wasn’t very close. That’s just my take hah

  12. Hevyhitr12 says:

    Diaz is a sour fkn loser

  13. Cashing in my ticket @the Southpoint casino here in las vegas, went all in on Condit, yup he clearly won! Diaz’s walk you down pitter patter, pin you against the fence strategy failed on Condit, Diaz couldnt do anything and Condit was getting off the cleaner and harder shots on the feet, well at least thats what i saw….Now I’m going with the Patriots/over….Looking forward to a great superbowl, here in the fight capital of the world…..

  14. Ted says:

    Contit you SUCK, you are a scrub, when I want to watch a sport I will watch basketball or tennis, I wanted to see a fight and a true champion win the interim belt, you ran around in circles conTIT. Muhammad Ali used to dance around but he had waaaaay more cahones than you would ever have, a true champion will win the fight and try to finish not steal the fight using the judges , ray leonard vs hagler pissed me off but I think contit pissed me off more.

  15. Hoping Bj comes back while gsp is out and maybe the UFC can set up a non title 3rnd fight against Condit and then maybe Bj spoils both plans, or rematch with diaz then go back to 55 and whoop nate diaz….

  16. waitwtfffwtfwtf says:

    If being on top position while being out struck by your opponent your on top of wins fights every time then then by those rules Nick should win by pressing the action and having octagon control. Rules need to be more advanced for MMA Judging, at the moment it seems if you put the judges in an analogy it goes like this: The new white belts in the class are going to be judging the black belt matches
