So in his first fight against a legit top WW Diaz get's beat, no surprise there, I was never one to buy into the Diaz hype train. He is a very 1 dimensional fighter with good punches and good submission skills against lower tier fighters, nothing more, nothing less, and when you fight against the elite that's not going to cut it. I have been saying for ages that GSP would have EASILY beaten Diaz, and this result only proves it, as Condit made easy work of Diaz. Some Diaz fans are trying to make excuses saying there is no way Condit won that fight, which is just basic fan boy bias, Condit clearly won that fight, and secondly even if Diaz won the fight, if it wasn't impressive enough or emphatic enough to convince the judges and many other fans, then what's his chances against the best WW out there in GSP? Does anyone actually think Diaz' sloppy fight last night would even be remotely good enough to beat GSP? We all know the answer, GSP VS Diaz was all based on HYPE, nothing more, nothing less, as Diaz himself admitted, he had to to talk trash because that's what get's him the title shot, and as he said, it worked.
But the good thing is we will actually get a legit WW championship fight now, as Condit VS GSP is not simply based on hype, but that Condit deserves to be in there with GSP and brings the skills to be able to give GSP a legitimate challenge.
