Did you not see his kick to the face or the many spinning back fists he threw (despite them being unsuccessful they were quite deadly)?
Diaz whined about how Condit wasn't willing to just stay against the cage and let him tee off on him. It's called being a dynamic fighter and learning to adjust to your opponent's game plan. Something Diaz wasn't able to do. Condit won in my opinion and I'm tired of these moron fans booing. The only person who deserved to be booed was KOS for keeping his hands in Pierce's face the whole night. Such a dirty and cheap move.
sure, he threw out some random strikes there, and landed a few pretty looking kicks to the face, but none of them did much to diaz, and condit was obviously not looking to follow it up and looking for a finish of any sort. in fact, after any combo, he would start backing up immediately like so:
like i said, who you think won is all just opinion at this point. it's clearly split down the middle from both viewers to the people that are professionally affiliated with the sport.
none of it matters now since the rematch looks to be a go.
"Give me just one moment... Through the eyes of the one in
A picture perfect moment... In the life of the one who is
Something better, more than... Anything i will ever be
Give me just one second... Just to touch what I'll never own
Let me count those feelings... Of love that i will never share
Show me your compassion... In the dark of this world"
