I agree with various sentiments above me.

If this is the way Carlos is going to fight, then he needs to drop the "Natural Born Killer" tag.

Several comments about Condit stalling or being boring have been popping up. I thought it was a badass fight. /shrug
It's universally recognized as a terrible fight. The first round was good because Carlos was engaging.

It's fun to think that it was Carlos's gameplan to run around, but then why didn't he do that in the first round especially against Diaz who is a notorious slow starter?

He went at Diaz in round one, ate some body shots against the cage and decided to jump on his bike instead because he realized Diaz was every bit as good as people say he is.

The only people I've seen praise the fight are people who dislike Nick Diaz's attitude.

In fact, the most critical people of that fight tend to be big Carlos Condit fans like my (former) self who talked Condit up to all their buddies and came off looking like a total retard.

Also this is the guy who's 'gameplan' against Dan Hardy was to stand in front of him and trade punches, which was literally the ONLY way Hardy could win. Condit isn't that guy. He isn't a runner. He isn't a guy who'd rather keep his distance and throw leg kicks, then literally turn his back on his opponent and sprint in the opposite direction when the guy get's close. Condit felt what Diaz could do and he decided instead to do what Greg told him and try to win without fighting.

This is one of those fights where the guy who lost came out looking great because it really showed how scary Nick Diaz is. Even Carlos Condit wanted absolutely nothing to do with him on the feet after feeling those body shots. No one else Condit has every fought was able to put that fear in Condit.

'Timidity' is listed as a foul in the unified rules on MMA. One of these days maybe we'll get a ref who actually enforces it.

I was also some one that was made out to look like an utter idiot after hyping the fight up for weeks on end to my friends.

Imagine two starving hyenas thrown into a sack. That's how I expected Diaz/Condit to go down and that's how I was hyping it up to my buddies.

It was embarrassing to see Condit fight the way he did. I still believe how ever that it was only a one off and we will see the real Carlos Condit enter the octagon against GSP and look for the kill every minute that passes by.

He'll get Rory'd. Only by a much much better, balder version of Rory this time.

Rory'd, lol.

I think the severity of GSP's injury and huge lay off is being under estimated though and I think Condit is well versed enough in the grappling department to stifle GSP's top control (like he did with Rory).

After all, Rory actually did NOTHING with any of the take downs he scored on Condit because Condit wouldn't allow him to do any thing.

He's also got some good experience against another high level wrestler in Ellenbgerger, who he schooled for the last two rounds.

I just hope Condit really hasn't sold his soul to the devil.
