And finally, the man himself, Carlos Condit has come out and spoken about the match, stating that although the match and his performance did not leave many people happy, he was satisfied with his own performance and the end result.

Speaking to the website of the promotion, Wallin MMA, Condit added that it might not have been the all-out war between him and Diaz that was expected by most people, it still was entertaining, further adding that the fight proved to him that he could make a plan and stick to it, no matter what the circumstance are. He also added that previously, he went into a fight with a strategy but the moment the first few punches were thrown, he would abandon it.
