Good to be back.
I'd like to touch on what transpired at UFC 143, undoubtedly one of the most head scratching cards in recent memory. I could (and frankly, might) go Tolstoy about everything weird, hypocritical and ludicrous about 143, but for now, I'd like to focus on the idea of winning fights by "going forward" and "walking someone down."
Nick Diaz dropped a unanimous decision to Carlos Condit in their interim title bout, with judges scorecards of 48-47, 49-46, and 49-46. Afterwards, he lamented that he thought he clearly won, because he felt that he not only landed more shots, but that he "walked him down the whole fight." At first, I thought this was just typical Diaz aloofness. In his mind, Carlos Condit had acted cowardly by moving away and "throwing baby leg kicks."
Thanks to anyone who reads. Feedback? Please.
