I didn't get a chance to watch it live, but got a chance to watch it today three times. I only needed to watch it once though, to tell you that Nick Diaz won rounds 1,2,3, and 5.

Even if I'm being extremely generous and giving Condit round 3 which was the closest of the rounds I gave Diaz, it's still 3-2 Diaz.

I cannot believe anybody could call round 5 for Condit. When you have a guys back for damn near 1/2 the round after chasing him for the other 1/2, I can't see how anybody could see that any differently.

I don't fault Condit for his strategy. It worked pretty well and allowed him to go to a decision with Nick. It worked way better than if he would have tried to stand and trade with him. It also wasn't nearly as bad as Kaleb Starnes performance like some have said.

I really hope the UFC has the two of them rematch with the winner fighting GSP in the fall, not because that's the fight that the fans want to see, but because Diaz deserved to win that decision.

PS: If you want to fix the judging in MMA, it is very, very simple. Have only 1 judge for every fight, and have it be Cecil Peoples. However he scores the fight, just reverse the numbers, and give the win to whomever Cecil says lost.

No Nick Diaz did not win the fight via the Judges present at the fight, Fight Metric, every MMA Site that had a poll on who won. Nick was outsmarted, out-manuevered, out struck both in significant strikes and total strikes.Nick never adjusted and could never corner Carlos - Carlos kept Nick at range, constantly spinning out of trouble and into the center of the Cage and picked Diaz apart from afar, Nick was frustrated but never could make the necessary adjustments and lost because of it - no controversy here Carlos won in a close but clear decision.

And diaz the triathalon runner had NO answer. He couldn't cut if off and didn't even try subs until the end of the fight. Diaz was outclassed by superior gameplan/strategy.

Condit won, it's called footwork guys. I know a lot of MMA fans don't recognize it but that's what everyone else besides MMA fans call it. I watched the fight with a friend of mine who also enjoys watching Diaz fight (can't stand his persona outside the ring/cage but he's dynamite once the cage door shuts) and after three rounds we both shook our heads and agreed Diaz had done nothing up to that point in the fight to be ahead on the cards. Halfway through the fifth round we both agreed it was a pretty easy decision in Condit's favor. After watching it again a few weeks later WANTING to see what everyone was whining about I came to the same conclusion. In a time where we see a "SoandSO was ROBBED" thread after every event I really didn't then and still don't get the confusion.

I laughed. Cause its true and op is retarded if he thinks Diaz won four rounds. But then again hes trying to stay relevant while taking credit away from a SUCCESSFUL UFC fighter. See how I did that
