Nick Diaz had a good showing last night, but his stock still drops a bit.
We learned some things about Diaz that we didn't know—bad things.
For instance, he doesn't check leg kicks. Condit threw a TON of leg kicks throughout the fight and Diaz made no real effort to check any of them, preferring to just absorb the damage.
We also learned that, as good as Diaz is at taking fighters out of their game, he can just as easily be taken out of his own. Diaz was noticeably frustrated by Condit's strategy throughout the fight, but did nothing to counter it.
After his fight with BJ Penn, many people were left scratching their heads, wondering how anyone was going to beat Diaz.
Last night, Condit laid out the formula.
