gsp nullifies opponent aggressiveness with his wrestling strength. there was really nothing diaz could do, like a lot of gsp fights his body strength is on another level. not to mention he out quicked diaz too, diaz was completely nullifed.

Meh, ended up being a rather predictable fight, but at least the 2 previous fights were good.

Condit-Hendricks was the real main event. Although I think Condit won tbh despite him getting taken down so often.

I'm very disappointed in Diaz, looks like his heart wasn't even in it, and he just wanted to cash out one last big payday and call it a career. Retiring again, and he and GSP acting like best buds at the end further confirms my suspicions. He had some ample opportunities to initiate offense and he didn't do anything. Maybe he gassed?

Anyway...I feel bad for the ppl who actually bought this ppv expecting a thrilling performance/finish. Wolf tickets...

As for GSP, I don't think I've ever been less impressed w/ a fighter who is considered arguably the greatest in his sport. Will he EVER finish someone? EVER????

Diaz couldn't get off any sustainable offense, both standing and off his back. I recall two instances where Diaz had his hands down for a portion of the 4th round and another where GSP had his back w/ hooks in, and GSP still couldn't finish him.

Dude has become a human blanket/sticky glue. He's too much of a safe fighter for my book. Mind-numbingly boring...

Silva DESTROYS him if they ever meet.

Hendricks or Ellenberger. They have crazy power, would require a lot of luck also...

Idiot, because I made an observation that many others did, as well? Guess I shouldn't expect anything less than your insecurities. Pacing back and forth with his hands down not looking to do anything while he's losing the fight? Great plan to try and win. Half the fight was standing, but where was the aggression? Where was go for broke? He showed aggression in the last half of the 3rd round, but where was that in the 4th and 5th? Nick Diaz himself said he was flat. His words, Beavis.

I like how Nick starts off with saying 'I'm not trying to make excuses' and then makes a million excuses. LOL, he says GSP punches like a girl. The guy known for pitter patter punches is talking shit about GSP's punches. Nice to hear Nick ramble like an idiot (kind of like gigantes).

Careful, gigantes is going to call you an idiot.

meh... i deserved something back on that one, so it's all good.

i still love the diaz boys, though... they bring a whole different dimension to pro-fighting, no? c'mon, jackass... even YOU can recognise something good for something good, no?

hey, what do you think if greg jackson handled nick and nate instead of dumbass cesar? ...anything good out of that equation?

Diaz put up a better fight than I thought, some good td stuffs but as predicted GSP wins.. not very impressed though. Condit and Hendricks was awesome, wish it was 5 rounds

Condit beat Hendricks the last 2 rounds.....


- this is what pisses me off....takedowns should not count as anything.....

- damage from top or bottom is what matters....Condit did more off his back...then Hendricks just getting a take down.

Agreed 100%.

Condit won the fight IMO. He pushed the pace, was the more effective striker, and was much more effective/did more damage on the ground off his back than Hendricks did from top.

Hendricks repeatedly took Condit down but whats the point if you get outstruck and outworked when you do take it to the mat?

Takedowns/wrestling are rewarded far too highly in the UFC. It should be about control + damage + effective striking/going for the finish. Meaningless takedowns should mean nothing.
