UFC 143's Nick Diaz is 'done with MMA' because he 'don't need this sh*t'

Pictured: Nick Diaz.

In the main event of UFC 143 last night (Sat., Feb. 4, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nick Diaz lost a controversial unanimous decision to Carlos Condit and in turn, a chance at UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre.

It was a close fight, close enough that scores on social media sites everywhere ranged from 50-45 Diaz to 48-47 Condit.

In the end, the judges sided with "The Natural Born Killer," which shocked Diaz. So much so, in fact, that he threw his hands up in disgust when the decision was read and promptly informed color commentator Joe Rogan in his post-fight interview that he's "done with MMA" because he "don't need this shit."

Essentially, his message was that if winning big fights like this means "playing a game," as he put it, he simply doesn't want it. He stalked Condit throughout the fight, walked him down, took him down, took his back, attempted submissions, threw the kitchen sink at him, all that good stuff.

And still, he lost.

So, off he goes, into the Stockton sunset to help train his brother and the Cesar Gracie fight team but never to compete in MMA again. Unless, of course, he's just hot under the collar from the decision -- much like B.J. Penn was following his defeat to Diaz last October -- and will change his mind when he gets the chance to cool down.

It's easy to understand how Diaz feels after a fight like that but is he rushing the gun by calling it a career? And how did you score the bout, Maniacs? Was Diaz the rightful winner?
