    He was winning the fight, he just gassed. Maybe he learns his lesson on conditioning at this level and takes another big fight.

    im not a Diaz fan, but..

    He was not winning the fight.

    False.

    He might have stole the first. The second round was competitive but I think Robbie began turning the tide.

    Nick asked for a 5 rounder, and he didn't have 5 rounds of gas. Even if Nick was up on the cards (I'm not saying he was) it was a matter of time until he lost.

    It was a great fight but the pace they were going at there was not going to be a need for judges. I'd be curious to see the cards, I was watching to enjoy it, not to score it.
    Both guys ate a lot of shots, both guys also blocked and defended a lot of the shots so Im Curious how the judges scored that.

    Anyone got a shot of the scorecards?

    Robbie has made major improvements in his defense since the first fight. Nick caught him with his hands down and not rolling with the strike, that is damn near impossible to do to the grizzled veteran version of Robbie Lawler. Aside from Woodley, Robbie has done a great job of deflecting, rolling, and mitigating big shots in his second UFC run.

    29-29. On its way to 29-28 Lawler.

    Some had it 30-28. Not crazy either.

    It’s not amateur boxing and last Unified Rules had a good update on damage v volume. TS knows this.

    Nah stats don't matter dude watch the fight. Diaz landed more but Lawler's strikes had way more impact.

    And Lawler ate every single one never getting hurt. Lawler threw the more powerful shots and controlled the cage.

    Should have made the fight a 3 rounder instead. He underestimated Lawler's physical ability. But Lawler has been living a cleaner life and stayed physically active/competing so he is actually in better physical shape even though he's older.

    Paddy-cake punches aren't 'significant strikes.'

    And if they're counted as significant strikes, that counter is a joke.

    Think about it. Hard over-hand punches that almost KO fighters count just as much as slaps from your 12-year old sister.

    There was absolutely nothing behind most of those punches, he looked slow and uncoordinated.

    It looks like he was playing tag with those punches, yes they landed but it was all arm and no pop.

    I remember Nicks punches used to sting quite a bit, Daley was like out on his feet.

    Lawler just either parried them or ignored them

    he doesn’t need lessons in conditioning, he deliberately turned up like that. Whether its a mental block thing or he just was saying FU to Dana and the UFC who knows, but he knew he didn’t do the work needed in training

    He was landing but Lawler was walking through-he found it hard to get him off him- and when Lawler landed it was with enough force to be sendinf Nick backwards, backwards, backwards.

    I think Nick lost a little bit of power in the hands & Lawler was physically far stronger & better conditioned. Nick achieved a lot in his career but I think he realised he has no business being in there in elite competition anymore.

    Imagine how bad he would've gassed if he had made 170 like a true professional.
