Condit won via jogging.

That was some BS. He literally turned his back and gave a slight jog after landing a few kicks.

WOW! Unbelievable. All I have to do to win in MMA is jog 10 miles a day so I can have good conditioning to go into a fight and kick someone in the legs a few times and literally jog away.

Why didn't I think of this a long time ago. MMA, here I come.

hit hit hit avoid getting hit. Whats the big deal? Exciting, no. But it's perfectly valid.

Except that's not how Carlos usually fights. If the real Carlos Condit would've shown up we would've had a FOTY brawl on our hands. Instead we got a kick and run display...

Yeah, that was lame as hell, but Nick's fault for just chasing him and trying to walk him down.

I completely understand the logic of trying to win the fight.

But he would kick and "LITERALLY" jog away.

Who the f does that in a fight?

It's one thing to stick and move. I see sticking and moving everyday; but to "literally" "JOG" away is BS. He did not deserve to win that decision.

FYI, it's a big deal!

Im a big Diaz fan and also liked Condit but damn i could not believe how he literally would leg kick Nic and run away like that.. I guess its a valid way of fighting but man im glad I dd not pay to see the fight in person or PPV.. I bet all of you fools congratulating Condit would be singing a different turn if yall had paid.. **** I bet even Dana is upset at how the fight turned out.. Thanks Carlos!!!!!

actually, he did fight to win. That's the whole point of his gameplan. He's willing to stink it out strictly because it's his best route to victory.

If you mean he fought safety first, then yeah, maybe. But speaking from a strategical point of view, this was almost flawless.

I don't think Condit can beat Diaz toe to toe. So why should he try when a title is at stake?

I'm pretty sure it was you. Something like why should Guida fight in a way that he would lose? Because I wanted him to stand and bang with Gomi but he wanted to dry hump him.

I thought the only time he jogged was when Diaz had him against the cage and he ducked out of then circled around and squared back up, I didn't think it was that big of a deal.

It just bothers me because Diaz had plenty of chances to hurt Condit. Condit through plenty of body and head kicks that Diaz could have thrown him down on. He also loaded up on a lot of shots and lunged in with rights and those dumbass spinning backfists. Diaz just didn't get off first throughout the fight.

Pretty sure that wasn't me. I always root for Gomi unless he's fighting a Diaz. But at the same time, Guida isn't known as a brawling striker. It's like if Guillard fought Gomi and took him down and held him the whole time...

Haha, maybe it wasn't you then. But no way is this fight like that. It would be like Guillard not being a wild swinging tard and took his time to stick and move, turning Gomi every direction and not allowing him to get in any type of groove or range.

Nothing to do with Nick. Condit simply put on one of the most technical MMA fights ever. That is beautiful.

Punches, kicks, elbows, knees, body, head, stopping the takedown, stopping the submission, angles, circling out, not getting hit. Man, that is the ultimate display of fighting. Bruce Lee would have loved it.

The only thing that landed out of everything listed where kicks and a couple punches. That's the ultimate display of point fighting. Even if you hate Nick and love Carlos, I don't see how you can like how Carlos fought. Especially if you're a Condit fan. But you hate GSP for Ground control and transitions?

I am not a Diza hater but I understand Condit's safety-first tactic. Diaz has a tremendous jaw so he didnt risk exchanging strikes against him and he cant let Diaz pinned him against the fence. This is a must win to get the chance for the title...He strike when theres an opportunity and evaded Diaz assault (Diaz verbal attack didnt even affect him LOL).

But if you ask me if I was disappointed. Yes a lil bit, because I did not meet the expectation. Yet, he pulled what is not expected of him thats why even Diaz had that lost.

lol, nah, you weren't watching what was happening then. Condit even stood in the pocket in the 4th and used counter elbows that caught Nick's face every time. Then circled out before Nick could get a groove. Flying knees, tried a clinch knee. Spinning back elbows.

I'm not even a fan of Condit really. I support him because he demolished 2 of my favorite welters and since then, I won't go against him in a fight. But this fight did make me a fan. Bellissimo.

so he should have backed off too right and shaft the fans with TWO fighters who don't want to fight? why does Nick have to fall back in order to try and bait him into engaging when engaging is the name of the game?

look at Flickers .gif image in his sig he literally hit Nick once to just create enough room to bounce out of there, he rocked Nicks dome and could have landed 2-3 or maybe even 4 more shots if mixed with body blows THEN he could have gotten out of there. it literally looked like he was more worried about staying off the cage rather than hurting and defeating his opponent, so much to a point where he landed a good shot and instead of keeping it coming and backing up Nick he hit him only once and clearly for the purpose of keeping him away. I still can't believe he fought that way yo little by little I felt all excitement leave me and was quickly replaced with disappointment

It wasn't pretty or exciting but Condit won the fight - clearly. Diaz is simply too one dimensional. He showed no urgency nor explosiveness at any point during the fight, just the same plodding pace throughout. Condit didn't make me a fan and I fancy GSP to beat him comfortably, but there's no doubt he won this fight and that tends to be all that counts. "Win today, look good next time".

it ain't about looking good yo it's about having heart, he's fighting you like he said he would yo fight him back the way you said you would too, you're an animal too, he's one dimensional right? so shouldn't you be able to destroy him if you're not? therefore why are you running?

I'm glad that Rashad Evans left Greg Jackson's camp, anyone who takes the fight out of the fighters doesn't deserve to be around the fight game, make him someones nutritionist or something yo get him out soon before more people inherit that mind set

he's trying to make it okay not to fight in a fight as long as you get a win, that's a cowards mentality I'm sorry to say and it's very uncomforting to know that it's a mentality floating around in the fight game where there should be no cowardice.

you know what you signed up for when you came to the FIGHT, it's a fight not a grappling contest nor a hug off it's a ****in fight. how can you train someone to be a fighter yet show them how to avoid the fight?

I'm pretty sure Greg Jackson would say he teaches fighters how to dominate right? Rashad Evans dominated Phil Jackson see THAT was domination, striking and grappling and every other FIGHT element was controlled by Rashad in that fight, THAT is domination he took his opponent and pummeled him and just overpowered him, had he been with Greg Jackson still we would have gotten a bottle of Nyquil instead.

Greg Jackson, the Coach/trainer in Mixed Martial Arts is no good for the sport, no good for the future of MMA because he is stripping the sport of the true fighters by instilling into them tendencies that fighters shouldn't have. Rashad is a perfect example, I actually fell asleep watching Rashad Evans one time but in his last fight? he reaffirmed to me why he is my favorite 205lb fighter because he ****ing kicked ass the way he was contracted to do

it's hard to stay focused and aggressive when you're feeling pissed off at the same time, don't think that Nick wasn't pissed off mid fight. you can see the frustration and not because he was losing but because he wanted to fight and his opponent didn't want to, his opponent made the choice to literally not pursue a fight he went into that fight with fighting being the last thing in his head

he started the fight the way he finished it meaning he already knew what he would do, he already knew he was gonna stink up the joint and that's why I'm mad about it because that's not the fight game I grew up on and got used to

Condit had a gameplan. If you can frustrate your opponent (as early as the second round IIRC), then all the more reason to stick to that gameplan.

-That's all to it. Carlos can't bang with Nick and he knows it so he chose to "move like a butterfly and sting like a bee" minus the rope-a-dope and found success with little damage inflicted.

Condit used his low kicks like a jab and it threw Nick's boxing off every time.

Condit found a way to win

Diaz is a guy who wants the spotlight really bad until he gets it, then it just fkkn sucks cause they're shining that bright ass light in his damn eye lol

Just like Bj wants to be the best fighter in the world until he signs a contract to fight the best fighter in his division.

One gets angry at the possibility of success the other celebrates all throughout training for the most important fights of his life just to come up waaay short each time.

Think about it this way Flicker.

Hypothetically Guillard is going to fight Gomi. During the build up for the fight, Guillard says things like I'm going to knock Gomi out, were not leaving until one of us in unconscious, then come fight time, he takes Gomi down and rides out a decision. Smart fight or sold out for a W?
