Joe Rogan re-watched UFC 143 at home, now believes Nick Diaz defeated Carlos Condit (Video)

"Going back to the Diaz/Condit fight, my point about missing things, is I watched the fight at home and when I watched the fight at home, I had a slightly different opinion. When I watched it live I thought that Carlos Condit won it. In the fourth round I said that Condit was winning this fight and when I said that, I was a little bit out of school, because on the scorecards maybe necessarily he wasn't winning, in my head even, but, there was a trend in round three and four where Condit was scoring way more than Diaz was, that's why I was saying that Condit was winning that fight. The bottom line is when I watched it at home I gave Nick Diaz round one, round two and round five. At home when I watched it, I thought Nick Diaz won that fight."

UFC color commentator Joe Rogan talks about why he originally thought Carlos Condit "might have edged" Nick Diaz on the scorecards in "The Natural Born Killer's" five round unanimous decision win at the UFC 143 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (Feb. 4, 2012) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rogan also explains the difficulty in accurately predicting the outcome of a fight while simultaneously deconstructing it for the viewing audience at home, therefore leading to a change in opinion when he re-watched the Interim Welterweight Championship title fight at home, in a more controlled environment. He also names specific rounds that he believes should be scored in favor of Diaz, but is this an effort to bolster the company's decision to announce a possible rematch? Or does he simply make a convincing argument for a Diaz win?
