Diaz vs Condit in a Pride ring or any boxing ring would be an entirely different story. Condit would have his back to the ropes, turn and run away, except this time, he'd run straight into a corner and get pounded on, he'd try to turn and run again, but end up stumbling into another corner with no where to run. Poor dude would actually be forced to fight.
If it were in a ring Diaz wouldn't be able to pressure Condit up against the cage and tea off on him. There's a lot more room to move when your back is up against the ropes in a ring as opposed to a cage.

I'd say a ring would easily favor Condit since most of Diaz's striking success comes from putting people against the cage.
