Default Clay/Nate

Is it me or do others thing that Clay won all three round?

And I don't know how ANYONE coud have given that fight to Nate...

Clay had 1 and 3 hands down.. maybe lost round 2... but Nate winning 2 rounds? I just don't see it.

It was definitely not a good fight in my opinion. Nate looked completely absent from that fight. I was really upset with his performance. I really wanted him to win this fight, but he just didn't do anything outside a few shots he was able to land. I think Clay won all three rounds as well. That being said, he didn't do much either.

you know one now.

I had Diaz winning....what did Guida do to win? nothing on the feet, holding Diaz in a body lock and going to sleep on his back doesnt equal control

...Nice Full Nelson though

A. sigh... using wrestling to nullify a striker's stand-up game (in this case, a pretty damn good stand-up game) IS controlling the fight. He slammed Nate a few times, scored takedowns, reversals, threw several high crotches, tied him up in the clinch, he worked a 3 quarter and I def saw him use a cradle, he nubbed Diaz's reversal/take down attempts. I think this was one of the best examples of using wrestling to complete control the fight.

Diaz had such a HUGE reach advantage and dangerous stand-up and he's a brown belt in BJJ. e.i. standing in front of him and banging is a terrible idea, and sitting in his guard is a terrible idea. Clay worked his wrestling and took away all options for Diaz. Perfection.

B. That was a pretty sweet full nelson, though it was the second I have seen in the UFC, I think Fitch did one as well. But he tried it as a submission where Clay used it EXTREMELY effectively to gain side control
