According to Nick, even though pretty much everyone else who saw the fight agreed that “The Juggernaut” took the decision, he believes that Diego “The Exorcist” won the fight. I guess Nick missed the counter-punching clinic that Jake put on, or maybe he’s still sore that he lost the fight to Condit even though he was the one moving forward like a Sherman tank the whole fight and in spite of the fact that Carlos landed more. Whatever his reasoning was, it’s unlikely that he’ll be called upon by NSAC or CSAC to fill in scorecards for them any time soon.
It’s not that he doesn’t have the experience or knowledge necessary to become a competent judge. It’s that he thinks that MMA should be judged by Stockton rules — that and we don’t want him and Cecil Peoples sneaking out to smoke a joint during every intermission. Cecil gets preoccupied enough playing Angry Birds and tweeting to Chandella Powell about how much he digs her old modelling pics. He doesn’t need any more distractions.
As an interesting aside, the pair of tweets we managed to screen-capture were taken down by the ornery Stockton native within an hour of him posting them.
Now before you all start piping in claiming that the owner of the account isn’t real, it was in fact the “DiazBrothers209″ account that UFC president Dana White revealed was a fake account yesterday. According to Cesar Gracie, this one is legit.
