I know it's late but I've noticed a pattern. It seems Nick, Josh, and Ortiz all are hated (ortiz not so much anymore) but due to them having this stand offish attitude because of the way they grew up. Mostly bullies, and no father figure. So they have that everyone is against me attitude and the way they come off in talking, the fans boo them.

Nick not so much anymore but they used to boo him too. Ortiz too. And Josh they still do.

Although they are all pretty good people away from the cameras and stuff.

Exactly what I was gonna say. He really has been punching or kicking and opening up this entire fight, Diaz just doesn't know how to handle all of his movement.

He started to tag Diaz a lot more in the 4th I wouldnt be surprised if he got to comfortable and gets caught in the 5th.

Yeah because he turned Diaz around as soon as he got cornered. Then he got back in front of Diaz and tagged him all night. Lol, what do you want him to do lean against the cage and eat the shots.

Nick is obviously the better pressure fighter and Condit seemed to have planned around that. Condit's plan work very well for almost a full 5 rounds.

I don't get why Nick didn't take it to the ground earlier in the fight, it seemed Nick chose not to waste energy going for a take down.

I like Nick as a fighter but that little hissy fit at the end of the fight was unwarranted. You would think Rampage coached him or something.

Garbage decision, Díaz easily won first 3 rounds and the fifth. I think it was all corrupt, ufc didn´t like Díaz talking crap of Gsp nor the beating he put on Penn, they just didn´t want to see gsp humilliated. Besides it was in Vegas?, judges there are very anti-hispanic.
