What a bunch of bullshit. Condit shouldn't have to earn his shot three times, and this stinks like Dana and co. trying to get the match they wanted to begin with. And this immediate rematch crap is getting old, too. Maynard/Edgar 2 needed a rematch. This didn't, Condit won pretty clearly. "Close" doesn't mean the same thing as "controversial".
Nah, this is just Condit ducking Rory McDonald. :TrollDad:
I am not sying your wrong or Condit made a mistake, just that comparing him to Chuck is not accurate in that Chuck would have at some point gone in for the kill even if he didn't wobble the guy.

Chuck would have done what he usually did, which was eat shots while looking for the opportunity to land a death-fist counter. That strategy has not had much success against Diaz, he has too good a chin and is far too good at keeping people on the end of his shots .

Make the money while you can.
Even if Condit looses he and Diaz can have a third match and he can fight GSP down the road.
Its the smart move for Condit
It's a dick move on the UFC's part, but you can bet Condit is taking advantage of his position to make some crazy money off of their obsession with Diaz vs. GSP. Everybody involved knows its a slap in the face to have an immediate rematch, so I doubt Dana is being stingy with the terms.
If this rematch doesn't go his way i hope Condit will have learnt to abandon his quiet professionalism and throw a Diaz style hissy fit to in order to get an instant rematch of his own .
If the rematch doesn't go his way, they'll be 1-1. The rubber match will be inevitable.
I'm hoping for a carbon copy of the first fight, thus compounding the agitation of the fanboys.
Oh God, YES.
