Absolutely not. Why not? I think your forum name answers that.
Is how he fought THAT different than how Machida fights? Or how Dominick Cruz fights? There are martial arts instructors all over the world right now getting ready to show the video of that fight to their students, saying every minute, 'The techniques work. Stay calm. Don't let him bait you'.
Was that the fight I expected from Condit? Hell no. Was that a 'Greg Jackson' win? Totally. Guess what? That's why they're called martial ARTS. The techniques work. And for 22 and a half minutes, they worked beautifully.
I want to see a re-match. Cause now Diaz know two things. Condit can
beat him on the feet. And if it goes to the ground, Condit can't attack him. Diaz tried to to take it to the ground ONCE before the fifth round. Let's see a fight whereDiaze tries to take it where knows HE has the advantage.
As for Condit, I was rooting for him, so I'm feeling good. But he needs every bit of of now til GSp to work on his ground game, cause GSP will put on his ass every round.
