I think who you find boring or entertaining is a matter of personal prefernce, not maturity vs immaturity. If you like a movie that I don't like, it doesn't make you immature, it makes your taste different then mine.
Preferring a fighter who engages is a preference, not a sign of immaturity. You can appreciate a game plan like Carlos' for it's strategic efficacy, but at the same time, find it boring; It's a matter of preference, not a gauge of your MMA maturity.
you're right, actually
but the immaturity comes when you start seeing stuff like "he lost the fight because he ran like a bitch"
this is both immaturity and lack of education in the sport
Condit didn't "run like a bitch" by any means. I don't think anyone, at this level, gets afraid to the point of "running like a bitch" in the cage.
when you fight someone who is at least as good as you are, you want to put yourself in an advantageous position and you want to put the other guy in positions where he gets frustrated and starts doing mistakes
to put it simply, you want to be able to fight your own game and disallow the other guy to fight his.
Diaz game is to walk down opponents down the cage and then engage in a slugfest there. this is where he's the best and probably the best in the division at doing so.
By allowing Diaz to do that, Condit puts himself in a position where he's not as good as Diaz.
But by keeping the distance and making diaz follow him, he didn't allow him to get into his strength, preventing Diaz to fight his fight.
The post fight interview of diaz told us a lot about his mindset. Maybe Diaz would like to be more a "cockfighter", but this is not cockfighting, this is a sport, which involves smart game planning, and emotions control.
