If anyone thought Makdessi's style was boring, don't appreciate technical striking, especially from a countering standpoint, with accuracy. He had some of the best jabs and evasiveness I've seen today. His overall striking skills is definitely something to appreciate.

Argo - This is the new normal. When you lack the skills to fight when your opponent does not just stand there like an idiot ... you claim he was running.

As for Condit/Diaz. Diaz never changed his gameplan. He just lumbered like a zombie in one direction. (Didn't help his corner told him he won every round) Condit used footwork and out striked the guy who usual does most of the striking.

Fast forward to GSP v Condit. Condit tried his circling away and GSP didn't allow him to do it. Used the skills necessary to control the fight. Diaz failed at that.

Many today seem to think that fighting is only standing there like an idiot and doing the rockem sockem routine. Any fighter shows skills other than lumbering they call it "Fighting by not fighting" which is pretty ignorant.

Agreed..thats how it should be.

Lol at running away, this is MMA and you are allowed to take people down or press them against the cage, if he felt like Makdessi was ''running away'' he should have tried to do either of these things or just rushed him like prime Wanderlei would.
