    They're a couple of little bitches, IMO. I was enjoying seeing Nate get beatdown until that fluke.

    If by "Fluke" you mean masterfully applied triangle choke. Then yes, it was indeed a fluke.

    His triangle must be amazing, for him to have the confidence to celebrate with both arms. But Im so gonna try that!. He had lost both rounds in my opinion so he really needed the sub.

    Diaz was losing but what makes him special in my eyes is that he goes for sub after sub after sub. No matter what he sticks to his game plan and it works.

    Well, I think Nate Diaz is one of those guys who haven't lost until the final bell. His submission game is so on point that I don't see him ever winning by decision.

    I must concede on this point too. Much to my dismay.

    I'm a huge Pellegrino fan, but even I'll say that it's a bit much to call Nate's win a "fluke." Rewatch the final minute of the fight, and you'll see that Nate was very deliberate in clearing his left leg over Kurt's shoulder during the takedown. He took good advantage of a mistake made on Kurt's part.

    I think the cool thing about his celebration too was it didn't seem to be 'in the face' of Pellegrino, more just '**** YEAH I GOT IT!!!!'. I watched that reposition of the leg a few times, just great awareness there.

    I had picked pelligrino to win (and bet on him, TUF noobs made him an underdog) but I love watching the Diaz bros fight. Nick may bitch on camera, he has a lot of reasons to do so, but they both leave it there in their fights.
