Maybe thats why he was a little P.o.'d.
Diaz lost it, but it was controversial split score card tips from Draw to Karo.
Some stupid judge scored the 30-27 There is no way on this planet any one could have Scored that Fight 3 rounds for either fighter.
I dont like either Diaz that much, a little bit to thuggish for me, but i have to give that fight to him.
Diaz controlled standing up all three rounds, He was share timed pushing all three rounds. On the ground he Threw out 8 billziion submissions. HE defended DOZENS of take downs.
The only Two place Diaz Clearly lost was like 3 take downs to Karo's 9 take downs. But you cant keep a straight face and say Karo took him down at will....... Nick threw out like 16 submissions attempts to Karo's two arm lock attempts.
The second was Ground and pound. Karo was VERY active in ground and pound in the First round but that faded rapidly.
I can under stand if you give Karo the first round due to GnP That is fair enough, its debatable because Diaz had the stand-up and on the ground, threw out like Kemora, a Arm bar, A triangle and an omoplata.
No one( other then the 3rd judge) will claim that Karo won the second round. Even Karo said he lost the second round.
The Third is Diaz controlling the Stand up and Defending 6 take downs, to Karo's 4 success full take downs. Then you have to figure in the half dozen Submissions Diaz attempted and the fact that Karo could not maintain top position or advance from guard.( hence Diaz getting up and Karo getting TONS of take down chances).
The Fight at worst should have been a Draw. If you had A 1000 judges I doubt you would have had another 30-27 card.
