Nate Diaz: I was 'screwed' after eye punch

source: mmamania

"I didn't perform the way I wish I could have," said Nate Diaz at the the UFC on FOX 5 post-fight press conference. "I got a punch in the eye pretty early in the fight and things were blurry. They never came back. I was waiting for it to recover, and when it did I was going to come back strong. But it never did.

"Ben did great. He landed the good shot early. It was blurry. I was screwed. If I would have tried to get up with anything, or tried to aggress too hard, I think things could've gotten worse.

"Like I said, I was trying to wait for the eye to recover, until I could see straight. Because I knew it was coming back and I knew I was going to come back strong from it, but I never did. I ran out of time with it, and it sucks.

"But whatever, that's what happens."

Yup.Bendo had a great strategy, and the patience to implement it...Diaz is in a weird spot....he needs to add some strength and explosiveness, but at the same time, he can't cut much more weight. if he had the time (like a year), he would prolly be better off in the long term by making the jump back to 170 and adding some quality weight...

Nate is a stud and will be at the top of the division for a time to come.But if he wants to be the champ of the division some changes need to be made. No hate, it is what it is. I don't know why people are getting upset over all this....
