A better round for Maynard. He lands significant power shots, primarily inside the pocket where D's reach advantage is negated. (I really thought Maynard, now having figured out how to score, would continue past D's weak offense, get inside and dirty box his way to victory, or even score a knockout.

However, D seems to get inside Maynard's head with his taunting.

Round 3:
More of Rd. 1 where D pursues but remains outside of Maynard's range. Even though Maynard was successful landing power punches, he seems confused and inept again, as if Rd. 2 suddenly became a distant memory.

Winner: 29/28 Diaz.

Official scorecard: b.s.

Me too. There are so many fights that are clearly draws! What's so wrong with calling a draw? I personally wouldn't find it to be a bad thing at all. I mean, if a fight ends and you have to think about who you felt won, it was a draw.

I honestly thought that, that was some of the most biased coverage of a fight I have ever seen. So biased in fact, that by halfway through the third round, I was absolutely certain that Maynard was going to wrongly get the decision. IMO Nate clearly won the first and third rounds, with the second just going Maynard's way. However, all through the fight every little bit of success that Maynard had was highlighted again and again by Rogan and Goldie(with footage) whilst Diaz's were largely ignored (especially in the third).

Yeah, the commentary was pretty brutal. Especially when Diaz landed at least twice as many strikes as Maynard.

Both fighters lost.

Maynard did the only damage, hurting Diaz a couple of times. But Diaz landed way more. But we have to remember that Diaz hits like an 8 year old girl. This fight proves that neither are relevant threats in the LW division.

Attero Dominatus.

It was the worst fight on the card in my opinion. The rest of the card was pretty good though!

I wouldn't quite say that Diaz hits like a little girl...

WTF? Did you see Maynard's face after the fight? (go and check it out in the post fight interview on UFC.com) even if you discount the cut he received in the first round, his face is still a mess (two more cuts and multiple bruises).

lol, the commentary was terribly biased. Nate cuts Maynard with a jab in the first, only for Joe to proclaim, 'A pre-existing cut must have opened up on Gray'. Because it couldn't possibly have been Nate's doing. They would pay Diaz minor compliments here and there, but it was entirely clear who the two were rooting for. Especially when Diaz quite clearly takes the third round, yet Joe states, 'Gray is stealing this round' because Maynard just so happens to mount some offense in the last 30 seconds. I actually thought it was a very close fight, and I've no problem with Gray taking the decision, as it could have gone either way, but the commentary was ridiculous.
