Well that was a good card last night and I dug the fights!
Berao/Jorgenson was a good fight and I agree with Jorgenson's coach in between rounds, he can't fire off a couple of shots then stand there. Berao
was too good for that. He looked good in all areas, almost textbook. He kept his hands up well and had devastating leg kicks. He will be a force to
reckon with...look out Aldo.
Werdum surprised me. I knew he had a dangerous ground game, but he has dramatically improved his standup using Muay Thai fairly successfully. Credit
to big Roy too though, what a fighter! I think Werdum will be a good addition for the heavyweight division.
Someone needs to teach Bruce Leroy how to lock a choke and neck crank, how to lock a triangle, and how to keep his hands up. He looked amateurish in
his performance. He has some decent talent and a good chin, but he looked kind of weak out there.
Kos? Meh, same ole same ole, and I wish he would have lost.
Poirier and Holloway both looked good, and Holloway is just getting started.
Diaz/Condit - What a surprise! Condit had a brilliant strategy and stuck to the plan of getting back to the center of the ring and being elusive
instead of allowing Diaz to corner him. Carlos threw so many different strikes too, even though many missed, he still kept busy. This was the first
time I saw Diaz frustrated and I wish he had tried more to take it to the ground. I could have seen the decision go either way, but yea, I think
Condit outscored him. Diaz did make some good points about how he saw it, but his little bitch-fit was kind of sore-loserish to me, and looked
immature imo. WIll he retire? He might, but I sure hope not. I really like Diaz but it seems he still has some maturing to do. I don't want to see
him mellow out or anything, he just needs to hold his head high and keep on fighting. I am looking forward to watching the post fight interviews.
