The MMA Depressed-us: Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz

Zane Simon, Connor Ruebusch, and Phil Mackenzie return to watch the worst MMA fights they can find with an eye toward the UFC, Pride, Strikeforce, and the WEC. This week we're watching Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz, Maryna Moroz vs. Danielle Taylor, and Keith Jardine vs. Brandon Vera.

No UFC this week, which means lots more time to immerse ourselves in the lower depths of MMA. With a run of rock solid fights in the not too distant past, and a massive circus bout on the horizon, it’s time to do some serious penance. To get there this week, we’re watching a good-bad fight, a bad-bad fight, and a historically disappointing fight.

For the good-bad, we’ve got Keith Jardine’s UFC 89 win over Brandon Vera. For the bad-bad, Maryna Moroz’s UFC Salt Lake City win over Danielle Taylor. And for the disappointment, the meme’d-to-death MMA debate that was Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz at UFC 143.

To follow along with the show, queue up the fights on Fight Pass and start each video with my countdown. Or, get your own copies and start round 1 when Connor tells you. Otherwise, give us a “like” on YouTube if you enjoyed it and subscribe to MMANATIONDOTCOM.
