Nick Diaz announces retirement after loss to Condit (Video)

A loss is never an easy thing, especially when it means you won’t be able to fight for a title. Last night at UFC 143, Carlos Condit won in an upset over Nick Diaz, to gain the welterweight interim title and will now go on to fight  the champ Georges St. Pierre. Diaz was hearing none of it. He made it clear that he should have had the win, and went on to announce his retirement from the sport.

“I’m not going to accept the fact that this was a loss. I’ve lost fights before, where, you know, like, I’m not going to accept that either.

I think I’m done with this MMA. It’s been great out here. I’ve had a good career. You guys pay me way too much, but I don’t think I’m going to get enough to keep going in this. It’s been a good time. You know Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Good job Carlos, you’re the man, bro.”

    hope he really think about it, i would like to see him fighting over and over. Diaz is a great fighter, im upset too I can imagine how he feels but still… in my opinion he won the fight no questions about it, the ufc has a reeeaally weird way to judge fights i guess. last time same happens on bispin vs sonner’ last week  i dont know what to think about this anymore it seems like its turning into a money game! its so sad because i do love the sport and im getting disappointed

    Hey Pablo, the UFC doesnt have anything to do with judging, its the state commission that takes care of it. Now, not even knowing who employs the judges, you expect me to take your word that you watching from home, drunk, had a better vantage of the fight than the ringside judges? That explains a lot about these Diaz fanboys’ mentality,

    why you took so long stupid punkass

  • Stu says:

    At the end of the day if you don’t/can’t finish the fight you leave it up to the judges. Diaz would prefer his aggression to count more, but then every counter-striker would disagree- just because you are the one moving forward does not necessarily make you the better fighter.
