Could have went either way. But, takedowns were even (right?). Diaz had octagon control while Condit landed WAY more strikes and did more damage
(imo.) Diaz' face at the end of the fight showed that I think. I like how at the end of the fight Diaz said to Rogan something like, "If I had
known I was down on points I would have finished that arm bar"
or something like that. Really?
So he had him but didn't finish him off
'cause he already had him on points and is such a nice guy. Puhleeeze!
I like Diaz and definately think him versus GSP would have been awesome! But, he got out-gamed and out struck and I think he knew it. Sour grapes.
Octagon control alone wont win a fight, especially when you're being out striked (struck?) like that. He knew that too, that's why he was trying so
hard for the takedowns at the end of 5. I think Condit had the perfect gameplan for Diaz, however not pretty it was. It worked.
I was pulling for Diaz, but it is what it is.
