Like it or not, Condit fought smart and won because of it. He could've gone all out and had a war but chances are he wouldnt be wearing a belt right now. So..
There's one thing I would've liked condit to do more, and that is use the MT clinch. He got it a couple of times against the cage and instead of throwing some knees he just turned waa-waa around and jogged back to the center of the octagon.
And I love how diaz supporters mention the volume
of punches Diaz threw to the head and body and then complain about the power
of Condit's kicks, conveniently ignoring the fact that Diaz hardly ever puts power
behind those volume
