Star-divide


Before Rd1:
Nate: Fuck this guy, be smart aíright?
Nate: Wake up, Dude! Wake up! There you go!
Red Corner (probably talking to the corner-team): Be calm in the corner. Thatís where the cameras are, theyíre tryiní t make us look bad. The camera [...] is makiní us look bad for freakiní out so be calm on the cameraís
Nate: Watch that straight right left hook heís gonna try, straight right Ė left hook. Red Corner: Letís go Diaz! Be smart! Letís do it!


Round 1:
Red Corner (right after the first leg kick): Check that kick
Nate: Watch that straight right Ė left hook!
Nate (4:43): Put that chin down!
Red Corner (4:05): Box him up, Nick!
Nate (4:07): Feints too! Feints! Make him throw!
Red Corner (3:45): Turn it up! Heís trying to run! Heís trying to run!
Nate (3:36, probably talking about Condit): Yeah, he gets hit. He gets hit with shots.
Nate (3:34): Feints too, make him throw!
Red Corner (3:30): Turn it up! Turn it up! Right there!
Nate (commenting as Condit slips away): Hit and run...
Nate (3:!4): Body! Body!
Red Corner (3:08): You got him against the cage!
Nate (3:04): Cut him off, donít chase him!
Red Corner (3:02): Cut him off, donít follow! (The command is repeated many (!) times from here on out till the end of the round)
Nate (answering to a question I canít understand at 2:36): Trying to tag with a hard shot, thatís why. Heís probably tryin to win with a hard shot..
Red Corner (2:22): Cut him off, donít let him get out!
Nate (2:20): Letís get on that body too!
Nate (2:04): There you go! Set up the body!
Red Corner (2:01): You stand up tall!
Nate (after a spinning elbow by Carlos at 1:58): Fuckiní dick!
Red Corner (1:45): Get in and get out! Donít let him get off! Work that body [...]
Nate (after another leg-kick, 1:42): Check that shit!
Red Corner (1:31): Heís landet the better shots so far
Nate (1:30): Yah.
Nate (1:27): Heís tryin to pace for five rounds.
Nate (as Nick is pressing Carlos against the fence): Shorter! Shorter!
Red Corner (1:14): Flank him! Come on! Get him against the cage! Body!
Nate (0:56): Cut him off good!
Red Corner (0:55): Get that body again! Keep that pace Nick!
Red Corner (after Condit escapes again and a lot of "Cut him off!" previously): You let him get off again! Donít let him get off!
Red Corner (0:26): Back him up! Take a step forward! Set it up! Step forward! Turn it up!

At this point I realized this would take forever and decided to drop most of the redundand stuff or sum it up!

Before Rd 2:
Nate: Sit down, sit down.
Richard Perez: Donít let him circle, you hear? When you got him against the cage...
Nate (interrupting): Deep breaths, deep breaths.
Richard Perez: Deep breaths, out of your mouth! Now...when you back him up against the cage Nick, you gotta stay in his face hard, you understand? So what youíre gonna do is your gonna pump that jab...
Nick: (to Nate, interrupting) Gimme the bottle of water.
Richard Perez: And you go to the body and then back to the head. Head-Body, itís wide open, you can get him.
Nate: Heís tryin to make you chase him too [him and Perez talking over each other] Cut him off real good.
Nate: Heís tryin to coast for five rounds. Cut him off good!

Round 2
(Iíll leave out most of the constant screams of "cut him off" here. Know that they are there till the fight ends)

Red Corner (4:35): Here comes the headkick! (Actually thereís another leg kick)
Red Coner (4:10): Keep comin. You have it there, dog!
Nate (to a teammate, 4:03): Heís got nothin on him, dude. Heís just tryin to set stuff up. (right here, Condit throws a spinning elbow at around 3:58) See, thatís the kind of asshole-shit heís got. But...he better land a good one if he wants to end it cause he canít really do too much.
Red Corner (3:41): You gotta throw your punches down the middle!
Nate (3:32): Make him come to you!
*somebody applauds after Nick taunts and slaps Carlos* (3:21)
Red Corner (somebody else than the staff that could be heard so far 3:08): Condit you pussy!
Red Corner: You can run all day!
Nate (2:50): Make him chase you! Make him chase you a little bit! Let him chase you too he ainít got shit!

*Lotís of calls for cutting Carlos off, going to the body and some feints from here on out *

Red Corner (1:40): Make him miss! Make him miss! Let your hands go!
Nate (after the flurry on the fence around 1:20): Good job Nick
Red Corner (1:24): Heís tired now! Heís tired! Heís getting desperate right now, heís getting tired! Down the middle!
Nate: Nicks gonna pick up the pace later in the thrid-fourth round and if [...]
Red Corner (0:37): Come on, Nick! You canít win like that! You canít win like that!
Red Corner (0:17): Throw! Throw!

Before Rd 3
Nate: Ok, sit down
Red Corner: You canít finish him by follwoing him. Your doin good [...] and come back with the uppercut.
Nate: Keep doiní what youíre doin.
Red Corner: Youíre doing good. You got him runnin now. Heís gassin out from runnin. Nate: You ainít gonna have to chase him so much, too. You can if you want but you donít have to. Heís trying to make you chase him around some hard shit (?). You can wave him down like "Come to me motherfucker!". [...]You won the last two rounds so keep doin what youíre doin. But you can make him come to you too. Or do what you want. You can do that too, he ainít doin nothin.
-- Canít understand what Richard Perez is saying here, unfortunately
Nate: Feints too, ok? Make him throw, make him throw. Good job brother, youíre doin good.

Round 3
Nate (no clock yet...right at the start oft he round): Itís lookin good
Red Corner: You think so?
Nate: Yah, two Ė zero.
Red Corner: Sometimes though, they...
Nate: Nah, two to zero. Everybody knows that. Fuck that! The guy ainít doin nothin. Heís doin what he can though.
Red Corner: Heís running. Heís running the whole time.
Red Corner (4:25): Right now! Right now!
Red Corner (after Nick flurries on Carlos 4:23): Oh, nice! Nice left hand!
Red Corner (4:21): Heís hurt! Heís hurt Nick! Heís hurt!
Red Corner (4:12, as Carlos turns his back briefly and jogs to the middle of the cage): Get on top of him! You gotta be on top of him when he does that! Heís not set. Now down the middle! Come on!
Red Corner: (3:43) You got it dog! Keep going! Keep doing it! Keep doing it! He donít know what to do no more! Thatís it right there! Heís turning! Heís turning! Step over! Step over, down the middle! (This gets repeated a while with calls to let his hands go and go fort he body)
Nate (2:51): Heartrate, Nick!
Red Corner (2:30): Donít let him bounce around!
Red Corner (2:07): Come on now, Nick! Donít stand in front of him! Back him up, there you you go! Mix it up, Nick!

*Lots of "cut him off", "turn it up", "make him come to you" and all his corners favorites so far*

Red Corner (to Nate): Heís gotta get the punch-combos going
Nate: Yeah. Itís hard though when youíre chasing the fucker all over the place.
Nate (0:16): Donít chase him, walk him down, Nick!
Nate (after Condit slipped): What happened? Did he fall?
Red Corner: Yeah, he fell.

Before Round 4
Nate: Here, sit down, brother
Nick: Did I get hit?
Nate: Nah, youíre not even cut.
Richard Perez: Heís got nothin no more, dog. You hear me? He got nothin no more. All you gotta do is go down the middle, get that body-shot. Donít stand in front of him though cause you may get hit [...]
Nate: You can make him come to you as well cause heís just running from you. Donít chase him. Wave "Come to me, motherfucker", you know what I mean? [..] You can keep doin what you do the whole fight. You gotta cut him off really good, ok?
Round 4
Red Corner: [...]man, theyíre trying to cool him off. That was a lot of water.
Red Corner: His heatrate seems still alright
Nate (4:49): Thatís what they do, they make him all wet so the punches slip off and shit.
Red Corner (4:44): Ist that allowed here?
Nate (Yelling over to the other corner): Ey, yíall put too much water on that motherfucker, man!
Nate (4:32): Ref! Dry him off, ref! Dry him off!
Nate (4:23): Heís slippin all over the place cause they put water all over him! Thatís weak.
Nate (3:48): Okay letís go and pick your shots right now, letís not go for the fence right now! Quicker shots that land, Nick! They donít got to be hard now, just makeíem land!
Red Corner (3:25): Heís gonna run in a circle all night. Letís get some hooks, make him stay in there!
Red Corner (3:19): That body shot hurt him, do it again!
Red Corner (3:12): Heís trying to run again. He always runs out to the same side. Right hook as soon as he turns out!
Red Corner (3:05): Right hook, left hook, keep him in there!
Red Corner (3:02): Body lock!
Nate (3:01): He all wet!
Red Corner (2:59): Itís aweful. Yeah, refereeís gotta [...]
Nate (2:50): Heís wet, dude! Heís all wet.
Red Corner (2:48): Let your hands go! Donít stand in front of him!
Nate (still about Condit being all wet): Thatís weak dog. Thatís weak.

Nicks corner is clearly frustrated that he letís Condit escape from the cage so often, exclaiming "aw man!" and calling for him to stay on Condit.

Nate (1:50, as Condit sprints away again): Call for a yellow-card!
Red Corner: Heís running all day
Nate: Thatís the best he can do man. Heís just surviving the fight!
Nate (1:15): Step on the outside!
Red Corner (1:13): Take the center! Make him come to you!
Red Coner (0:50): Put him in a war, Nick! Make him waste his...letís get his heartrate up!

*again, thereís a lot of "let your hands go", "cut him off" and "Let him come to you" all throughout this round*

Red Corner (0:07): Takedown!

Before the 5th round
Nate: Hey ref! Ref! Ref! Ref! Ey, they keep wetting him! Heís all slippery because they keep pouring water all over him.
Referee: Alright, alright!
Nate: Thereís water...
Somebody says: What do you think. Maybe Nick
Nate: No. No, no, no, no, fuck that, you got every round.
Somebody, maybe Nick (Although it doesnít sound like him) says: "Donít lie to me"
Nate: He might have got that last round but thatís it. You got the rest. Youíre up three to one, okay? Rinse it out, take a drink. Letís get a couple of ten second intervals in this one, ok? Whenever you want, whenever youíre ready.

5th round
Nate: This is the last round, right?
Red Corner Is this the fifth round?
Nate: Yah. Fifth round.
Nate (4:14 after the usual calls): Be smart Nick, make him miss!
Nate (4:02): Quick punches that land, alright?
Red Corner (3:38) You just stand in front of him! Come on Nick, come on!
Red Corner (3:26): Donít stand on the outside!
Red Corner (3:12): Take him down when he stands like that!
Red Corner (2:32 as Nick gets a body-lock): There it is! V-lock! (?)

Lots of calls to "set that hook up", plus the usual stuff. Nate informs Nick oft he time at the 2 and 1:30 mark.

Nate: Yeah! (as Nick takes it tot he ground, 1:20)
Nate (1:10): Heís gonna finish somethin, dude.
Red Corner: Relax! You got a minute! You got a minute!
Nate: One minute!
Nate (0:50): Yeah, heís trying to get that armbar.
Red Corner (0:40): Grab the chin!
Red Corner (0:30): Break his nose!
Nate: 30 seconds, go on top! Now, Nick, now!
Nate (0:17): Ey, letís get some elbows, get some punches! 15 seconds!
Red Corner (0:09): Set that choke up!

After the fight:
Official: Nobody goes in until I say. Stay right here, please
Red Corner: Yes, Sir.
Nate: Fuck yeah!
Red Corner: Get his shirt!
Nate: Ey, gimme his shirt! Gimme his shirt!
Nate: You won that shit!


Official: Now get in there. You know what to do?
Red Corner: Yes, Sir!
Nate: Gimme that shirt!
Dana White: Good job, dude!
Nate: Ey! For sure four to one, aíright?
Nick: I got that? I got that homie?
Nate: Yeah Fuck yeah, you got that.
Nick: I pushe him back the whole time
Red Corner: Yeah, yeah, he ran.
Nate: All we got is the sweatshirt. Ey yo, put this on. I tell you [...] four to one for sure. No problem.
Red Corner: He ran too much.
Nick (probably looking at the replay): Theyíre showin only (?)his shit.
Nate: Yeah, that was the last round. But you got four to one for sure. Thereís no way...
Nick (interrupting): I almost finished that armlock.
Nate: Yeah, yeah, I know. He knew he was biding (?) his time too. Hey look, Nick, you guaranteed no matter what won that fight.
Nate (shaking Greg Jacksons hand): Good fight!
Nate (shaking Carlosí hand): Good fight, Carlos
Nick (after a few steps): Ran too much
Nate: Yeah
Nick (talking to Lorenzo Fertitta. Unfortunately, this is very hard to understand) : [...]You asked me to fight, I came here to fight. Iím not gonna[...]I came in a little heavy. It was either I could cut the calories or cut the sparring [...]

Nate pulls him away as the scores are ready to be read.
Nate: "Hey, listen. Listen: He did what he had to do, alright? Thatís what. So heíd get through that fight"

Its tragic because throughout the whole fight, Diaz's team were telling him what to do, and Diaz wasn't listening and they were actually contradicting themselves.

They go from the first round saying "cut him off" all the time, to the third round saying "you can't finish him by following him" to "Don't chase him, walk him down." So Nick isn't doing what his corner is telling him.

The frustration alone in what his own corner is saying, tells you that Diaz lost that fight. They're struggling to get a stradegy together to cut Condit off successfully. His corner even helped con Nick into believing he won every round as his own bloody brother told him so!? No wonder he was so pissed off after.

His corner seems to be as collectively stupid as Nick himself, as not once did anyone ever mention going for some takedowns to decisively win a round he so desperately needed.

Me. Even with a SF hexagonal cage things would have been different. It's harder to circle when its a 90 degree angle you gotta circle out of.

So each and every round Nate is yelling, "cut him off!". Yet, each round Nick simply stalked Condit and never tried to really cut him off

If they had nunchuks, then it would totally be a different fight. :numchucks:


Anyway, I don't think Nick's corner did a good job. They never had a solid plan going. Nick also apparently didn't listen to how many times they told him to cut Condit off, but then again, they also told him to let Condit come to him. Nate probably really thought Nick won that fight but he should have been pressing Nick harder to make something dramatic to happen.

I think Nick should have tried to get a hold of Condit and do what he could to keep a hold of him and get it to the ground. I think if he had been successful in taking Condit down at the beginning of the 5th round, he could have found a submission.

Nate: You can make him come to you as well cause heís just running from you. Donít chase him. Wave "Come to me, motherfucker", you know what I mean? [..] You can keep doin what you do the whole fight. You gotta cut him off really good, ok?

Thatís what they do, they make him all wet so the punches slip off and shit.

Chuckles at the first one, "come to me motherfucker" hehehe.

Second one I don't really follow. Water can make things a bit more slippery but I don't think it's going to slip the punches off any more than the vaseline does at the beginning of the fight. I dunno, anyone have a stronger thought on this? I am interested to hear if it has any effect.
