    This isn't a who won or bashing the way Condit got the decision thread, Im just wondering who you think would of won if Condit came out uber-aggressive like he usually does? After all, the reason people were so excited about this fight is because Condit's the only ww (probably) who can match Nick Diaz for aggressiveness/cardio etc

    Thoughts?

    Pretty much, and Sherdog would be a much nicer place to be at.

    Condit already admited post presser, "Diaz would be up here, not me" if he went toe to toe.

    Ah, I see we've entered the alternate reality of "what-ifs" the Nick Diaz fans depend upon greatly.

    What if Diaz went for a takedown in round 1 instead of round 5? What if Diaz cut off the cage a little bit? What if he didn't get picked apart while just walking around talking shit for 5 rounds?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    What if Diaz actually moved his feet and landed cleanly on Carlos?

    Diaz did go for a couple of takedowns early and got shaken off like it was nothing.

    Not a Diaz fan at all. Not even a Condit fan really. Just remember why i was so stoked for the fight in the first place.

    He didn't want to trade in the pocket with Nick because Nick's combination punching is superior. He wanted to keep a little distance to land kicks and punches. You don't want to get swarmed by Nick and fall into his game.

    That was a great fight!

    But yeah, it would have been greater if Diaz had just tried to do something a little different, since what he was doing wasn't working...

    Not getting that specific, just wondering if people thought Condit could match Diaz for aggressiveness and cardio. Would we have seen a 3-4 round Diaz vs Daley?
