The Reason Nick Diaz Lost..


I blame Nick Diaz’s corner for the loss.

I was rooting for Condit to win and I'm happy that he did, but the last minute of the fight showed me that Diaz would have won with the right advice from his corner.

Diaz forgot that he's a high level Gracie BJJ black belt and thought that he was Oscar Dela Hoya in there. It should have been his corner's job (Nate or Cesar Gracie or whoever) to tell him "use your BJJ and you will win the fight." Instead, Nate told Nick going into the 5th round that he was, "up 3 to 1".

They should have told him to take Condit down and go for a submission after seeing how Condit fought the first round. Or they should have at least told him after the 3rd round to take Condit down and go for a submission in the 4th. But instead they didn’t tell him anything that helped him and Diaz didn’t take Condit down until there was 1 minute left in a 5 round fight.

To me that’s just bad coaching/corner work and that's why Nick Diaz lost..
