UFC 143 in Tweets: Pros Score Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Pros sound off with their scorecard for UFC 143's controversial main event, Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit.

It's the biggest cliché in mixed martial arts, but the words most certainly held true on Saturday night. Never leave it in the hands of the judges.

Unfortunately for Nick Diaz, he did just that, brawling back-and-forth with Carlos Condit for five rounds at UFC 143, only to drop a razor-thin unanimous decision, along with a shot at the undisputed UFC welterweight strap that has eluded him for so long.

The verdict was as close and controversial as they come, and while Diaz was preoccupied unleashing his post-fight fury inside the Octagon, his contemporaries sounded off via Twitter with their scorecards of the divisive interim title tilt.

4-1 Condit!!!!!!!! Perfect performance!!!!!!! As I said the only way to beat Diaz was to confuse and irritate him!!!!!!

That decision was an absolute joke. At best, Condit won 2 rounds.

Diaz wins via ring generalship, one moving forward, one moving backward. Ala delahoya vs Trinidad in my opinion, it's 3 opinions that judge

If I wanted to see a man run for 25 minutes I'd go to a track meet. Diaz is the real champ, what a bulls*** fight

I meant Diaz rounds 1,2 & 5 and Condit 3 & 4
