Condit is also great off his back and at the very least will get off some elbows on GSP while on the bottom. Could be a fight where he deserves to win a couple rounds but the judges give it to the guy on top.
Also, the point of the interim belt was simple- to sell PPV's. Having a belt on the line made the Diaz/Condit fight seem much more significant to casual fans. That's about it for relevance for the interim strap.
He used his good footwork to avoid Diaz' flurries. He didn't run, but he sure wasn't out there to finish a fight.
Diaz won 1, 2 and 5.
This much more reasonable. I thought neither guy fought very well. We all thought it was going to be a war...well it wasn't. Carlos used his footwork to not get pinned and Diaz never adjusted and kept plodding forward. It was a close fight and could have gone either way. It means nothing now since Diaz got himself suspended.
