Meh. I just watched it under the impression it was going to be a beatdown, only to find out it wasn't that bad. MacDonald did great the first two rounds but got absolutely mauled in the third. I can't tell if it was from damage or cardio but he could not recover at all. Condit wasn't doing too well but I definitely wouldn't call that fight a "lucky" win.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

How so? the fight was 7 seconds away from being one of the biggest upsets in UFC history...

Well Condit had his moments here and there, it's not like he was dominated till the very end. I'd say it was lucky if he was losing the third round as well then pulled off a crazy one hit KO but the third round was all Condit.

It is painfully annoying to hear Rogen call a Diaz brother fight. It's so unbelievably bias and gives their opponent little to NO credit.

Nate's getting tossed around like a rag doll, so great to watch.

Are you serious? Rogan has been talking about MacDonald's strength and technique all fight long and praising him. Alex I think your bias is showing not his.

I said "little to no."

All night long? Uh, not really. Every piss poor jab that Diaz barely connected with, Rogan about jizzed his pants, yet anything Rory landed he barely said anything.

Yeah, he HAD to give credit to MacDonald when he was lifting Diaz up and slamming him on his head 3 times.

Anyone who's anyone knows how bias Rogan is towards the Diaz brothers. The idiot actually thought Nick Diaz beat Joe Riggs.
