UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie took to Twitter this week to talked about last weekend's UFC 143 that featured Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz fighting for the UFC interm welterweight title.

Condit won the bout after five round but has been criticized for moving back in the fight. Gracie was is on the pro-Diaz wagon, and also took a couple shots at former opponents:

@nickdiaz209 won that fight in my.opinion. he is what every fighter should be a true martial artists who comes to fight. Well prepared and with a gameplan. Not one that envloves running from a fight. Why come to fight if you gonna run. Hackney was running when we fought and I had to take the fight to him, Shamrock showed up not to lose in our rematch its a shame really. I for one am proud of Nick and happy he is part of Grace Jiu-jitsu family.”
