"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."

Eye punch or not, he was screwed the minute he took that fight.

Uh, blurred vision obviously impairs your fighting skills.

For guys saying he's too thin, etc ... he's never going to be a strong athletic fast twitch kind of guy. Those are attributes you either have or don't have.

He does what he does with the tools he has and it works for him. Bendo is a beast and a bad style matchup for Diaz.

I know that. I'm waiting for everyone to now start bashing Bendo and Rory for not being aggressive fighters and finished their almost blinded opponents.

Sucked to see Nate get pretty much out-classed in the majority of that fight.. what's next for him? What would an Edgar-Diaz fight look like? Besides Frankie bouncing around while Nate stalks him talking shit...

In general, the worse thing you can do. when ass gets beaten, is make excuses. In general. Just say 'I got whooped' and go train and come back better. We all get whooped. Everyone.

No 'besides'...that would be the whole fight, followed by Frankie getting the decision!

the diaz haters are having a feild day with this one!

You'd think the diaz haters would come off less miserable in thier comments/Troll attempts, since he lost.

but since nate took the loss like a man, i guess that also rubbed many people the wrong way. The people that were upset when he didnt flip bendo off after the fight, its just a sport.

Everyone gets wrapped up in this, i hated rory just because he was fighting BJ penn, but once the fight was over i appreciated Rory's performance. Some people get a little too into the pre-fight hype, even after the events over.

talking down to nate is talking down to the rest of the division, becuase he cleaned it out in order to get to bendo. AND 155 is the most talent deep division IMO.
